Default Prodrive air->water intercooler

http://www.flat4engineering.com/main/index.htm

"This is also from the SEMA show. It is Prodrives new reversed hood scoop. Great it you plan on running a front mount or their new air to water inter cooler. I do not have a price yet and they won't be available until around spring so we are just guaging interest and trying to figure out how many we need to order."

Does anyone have any preliminary information as to what performance gains may be had on stock 2004 STi ?

I've already emailed Prodive directly - hopefully some was at the SEMA show and talked to the reps..

Thasks...

Your question is not quite clear.

You will see no gains by installing a revers scoop on your car. This scoop is mainly for people that install a FMIC and dont nead the scoop to force air into the IC.

A FMIC by it self will not produce any gains. IN fact if IM not mistaken installing a FMIC with out increasing boost will actualy losse power due to loss of presure.

A FMIC is usualy only installed after a biger turbo, or with a bigger turbo.

hope that clears it up a little....

Subaru and Pro-Drive both experiminted with air-to-water intercoolers for use in their rally cars but the complexity and extra weight were not worth the HP gains. However there are some drag only cars using them.

1) I'm considering a FMIC or Prodirve's air->water if it becomes avavailable hence my post to the team for info.

Thanks all for your updates/info!


2) I would only consider the reverse scoop or "bolck off" plate if the FMIC or Prodrive's offering was installed.


Here is Prodrive's response:

Yeah, 2004+ sedans are still GDA/GDB and wagons are still GGA (and they've dropped the GGB) right?

Air to water intercoolers can be had from many different vendors, spearco I believe will even mak'em any size you want, and far cheaper than pro-drive is likely charge.

Yes - unfortunately for me I do not have time to "tune" a set-up or educate myself on what size unit, water pump, radiator, brackets & associated mods only to loose horspower, reliability or driveabilty.

I'd rather pay "extra" and know there was development/tuning work with tangeable Dyno results.

Thanks for the info - it was interesting seeing the various air->water IC that Spearco had.
