So you want to go from a highly efficient simple FMIC, to a "comlex" unefficient air/water setup?

Otherwise I have done a great deal of research but not familiar with pre OBD2 cars running boost.

I just want to make this kit the most efficient possible. I also have a lot of friends running air to water which are drag racers and autox guys. Air to water has it's place and just gets a bad rap. Due to the internet. Am also looking to see hoe super simple these are to tune.

no, due to it's inefficincy. the internet has just helped spread the truth.


water/air is great, when you have a 24x24" box sitting on your passenger seat.

OK, well, like I said I have experience with them. Actually I have experience with both. So anyway I'm running 6psi and have a kink in the inlet pipe from the intercooler. So I need to fix that, fix some ginormeous oil leaks and some exhaust leaks too. Got plenty to do. It looks good sitting in the driveway though.

Adjusted the throttle cable. Omg what a difference. Before it was way slow. I left the gas station earlier and it went sideways on me. First drive after adjusting the cable. That's more like it.

I know right? Regardless of the kit it still is working obviously. it still is an IHI turbo RHB5 so it spins pretty good under any throttle. Now just need Omar. Moar I tell ya.
