Because it is an elaborate band-aid solution for an over heating problem that needs to be taken care of in other ways!

The IC spray was something I was going to work on when I was drag racing. Seemed like a good idea at the time - putting my radiator fan on a switch with an IC spray. Turn the spray on and hit the fans to suck it through. Just a little cooling for the IC while waiting in line to race.

Admittedly, my next mod is water injection and a retune for some more timing. I'd love to see 250rwhp out of the T25.

your next mod needs to be a hole in the bumper skin so your radiator gets fresh air

I've seen holes in the bumper cover, oval shaped if i remember correctly. They actually look pretty good, specially for a track car.

I kinda like kickinouty0's ( I hope I spelled that right) bumper holes. IIRC it's three oval holes below the body line.

now I wonder, if you were to cut the holes and then put some color-matched mesh behind it how much they would stick out..
