Looks nice! Who makes it? What does it cost? I need details. I'm a detail junkie.

Thanks,
Dustin

Humm... does it actually hang over the exhaust? I had always guessed nobody else did that because the heat off the exhaust would rise up into the intercooler core?

yeah, I know. Can you change your name or something, it's kinda annoying.


Anyway, I didn't know Cartech was still in town. What is the pressure drop? What flow #s? That Looks a LOT better than the other POS top mounts.

Question Car-Tech???

Car-Tech as in Corky Bell?


If so it should be Definately worth it!

He has been turbo'ing cars since before I was born.

Anyone ever read his book? I keep meaning to get it.

cartech, not catech. yes, corky bell's shop. this unit uses a single inlet from the turbo, so inlet velocity is doubled! the powder coated left mounting bracket is included, along with inlet piping and silicon hoses/couplers.

I think it is just like the FMIC, in that it goes in one way and out the other. Although it looks like it leaves from front like stock (hard to see from pics).

more pics and details man. Just PM Bankheist about your name change.

7900 cubic inches is the size of the intercooler core. the engine has a 2 liter displacement. don't you think your engine is bigger than a 2 liter coke bottle?

jmott
there are 2 tanks, just like the stock version. the air does not fill one side or the other, it naturaully goes towards to area of lowest pressure. that would be like filling up a ballon and only one side of it expands?

this should be be the last post as wr_rex (#2)...

this isnt a baloon.
balloons don't have air flowing through them.

I don't know enough about this sort of thing to comment intelligently, but I would be curious as to why subaru chose to have two inlets, its more trouble to do so...
