It looks like people stopped selling the 18x12x3 version and are selling a 24x12x3 verison instead. It will still fit even with a/c but it wount be centered.

Good job guys, the pics look cool.

The price of that cooler rev is using is really good, but how does it run, does it really help keep temps down for that price??

It should have enough cooling volume to be efficient. But Since it's smaller it will be easier to get heatsoak. But so far it's wokred well for me. I don't have the tools to take the intake temperature readings, but I can take some readings off the intercooler itself after 20mins on the track this weekend...


My problem is the "stats" from the ebay seller. it's listed as <150 cfm but good to 350hp?? it's around 150cfm for every 100hp, so 350hp should be good for 525cfm???
