Same as the Volvo unit. Look at the cross-sectional area of the air tubes, and their length and draw your own conclusions.GearHead said:what about a 9k intercooler
Clever but i would rather have a head light than a scoop, but it gets dark in Scotland and stays that way for 6 months of the year.quick4door said:When I used to have my stock side mount IC, I would remove the headlight, it helped alot. I even started work on a dummy headlight scoop, so the cops would not hassel me.
I did that too, because it was a pain in the butt to put the light in at night. My dad was building an airplane at the time, (RV-6) and he got me a scoop, like thisShadowWorks said:Clever but i would rather have a head light than a scoop, but it gets dark in Scotland and stays that way for 6 months of the year.
A small lip scoop in the hood above the IC would be a great idea and thats what i would like to have to be honest.
Just a slot, no wider then the IC and maybe only an inch in height that would be a nice way to get alot of cool air passing through the IC.
The only problem i can think of is the aero dynamics? it could whistle for all i know, but fact is it would work very well.
Working on that at the moment! The problem with the standard intercooler is mainly the route the air takes through it, the end caps restirict the flow so if your going to mount 2 in front of the rad you've got to sort out the caps.Than how about two of the original 900 IC's mounted in front of the radiator?
