Holy tiny intercooler batman! The 19T and 550's hint at serious capability but will that IC be able to keep up?

It'll be ok, especially for the weather I have right now, I'll throw a bigger one on there when I shoot for more power.

its a 12x10x3 core.

He'll probably see no more than 30*F over ambient temps with that IC. With a 18" wide core he would probably see 5-10*F over ambient temps. The difference is appreciable, but not astronomical. Overall I like this build. Got some serious upgrade potential going on. I like how it's cheap, but at the same time, it's right.

I'm a broke college kid, but I wont cut corners. The setup/car is ugly as sin, but functional to a T.

Making it more efficient/tuned/happier are my next goals....

I still can't figure out cold start though. Off to make a thread about that.

Heh. I'm walking in 4 thankfully.



Well, got her to cold start to around 30-ish. Tune sucks out the *** so I'm still working on that.
