Default SRT-4 Intercooler?

I know its been discussed a few times for Greddy kits, but couldn't find if anyone ever used one...its fairly large...(might be a bit to long?) anyway, a friend of mine is pulling his since he is getting a larger one and doing some crazy mods (first twin turbo srt-4 in the nation...). It supposed to be awesome till about 265-270 rwhp which is more than I'd see.

He just wants it out of his house and will sell it to me dirt cheap...can I use it or is it avoided for some reason?

Dunno if I'll get it or not, but I was just curious.

The end tanks on an SRT4 FMIC go straight back, you'd only use it if you're using a narrow rad.

Why is he doing TT anyway? There's already been at least one TT SRT4, and single-turbo AGP'd SRT4s see 400fwhp all day long..

Nobody has done it? kinda like turbo tim (thats him right?)

He is expecting mid 400s and almost zero turbo lag.


I didn't think about the end tanks being in the way of the radiator...I saw them but it didn't register. that sucks, anyway to move it forward? or I'd have to get an aftermarket radiator thats smaller? *sigh*

Best o' luck to him, but yeah I saw a TT SRT4 a while ago on srtforums. I'll just stick with my plans to do a 60 trim on mine.

For 80 bucks I would think about buying one of the Ebay ones...cause to fit that IMO I would think you'd need to cut and reweld end tanks.... or find a new radiator.

makes sense, I've got a random 24x6x3.5 EBAY IC sitting in my room, I was just curious on why we never used it.
