Default Hoodscoop_seeled_intercooler

Would it make sense to have aluminum walls welded to all four sides of the intercooler. Then, on the top of the walls, use some sort of weather stripping to get it to seel as good as possible to the hoodscoop. That way all you get is cold air from outside. I never heard of this being done.

I know some of you are going to say it will pressurize the crankcase or something like that. Obviously it is not going to be seeled the best, but it will probably get about 80+% outside air. Redline Engineering in Florida said they would see what they could do. Also, do you think I should get the GT25 or a T3 specked out to flow like the t3/t4, but better spoolup. Keep in mind, I only am going to run 8psi max in the future, and 5psi for now.

Any other suggestions, let me know. Kevin

See the stock duct under the hood scoop in the WRX.

I did this on my old turbo setup. I couldn't use the stock WRX shield since it didn't match up right with my IC so I had to rely on a home depot style rig-up . when I tesed it with the haltec , it showed a decrease of about 7 degrees at 60 mph . It didn't look too good from inside the engine bay but you couldn't see it from the outside. it did the job for a while but for in-city driving ,
a TMIC is just hard to keep cool.

zaidun: the 7 degrees, is that F or Celsious?

He's in Texas, it's Fahrenheit (not Celsius...as in Anders Celsius, the Swedish astronomer who invented that temperature scale...not to be confused with Celsious, which I guess would be having the property of being Celsy, whatever that means...).

makes sense to me. That's how it's done on the rex, will be better off using a heavy rubber condom(excuse teh term) like the rex has around the edge of the scoop.
