70 degree intake temp through a 70% efficient compressor at 6 PSI = 150 degree intake temps. Pass through an 80% efficient intercooler and the air drops back down to 85 degrees. That's worth about 10 HP.

On a 90 degree day... 170 degree air, to 105 degrees, again about 10 HP.

Just think, it's like getting 2 PSI of boost for free and it's actually safer for the engine.

Well I found 25 f'in pages once I dropped the S. Geez! Picky, picky.That's plenty of reading to keep me busy fer a while.
Lemme spend a day checkin them out and I'm sure I'll have some more questions. But they will be more edumacated Q's.
Thanks again, Luigi.

Oh yeah, when I figure out how to post and answer to the individual posts within my reply I will be runnin on 6.2 psi. LOL.

To the responder asking where I'm at in SoFlo it is the Fl. Keys.

I picked up a Flyin miata ic kit on this site for 250 shipped. Lots of people have made theirs from an ebay kit with a hack saw. Pony up the extra and do it.

Late to the party..

Get an I/C. Just do whatever it takes, it'll be worth it in the end.
