I definitely know my issue.
Ive a type 14 W2A IC running 27psi boost and my tuner says its heating up bad, as you can see from my dyno runs i made 347hp at 24 psi and IAT was just below 50 degrees Celsius then at 27psi it sky rocketed to 70 degrees only making another 6 hp but did make a little over 80NM more torque.
I run a SR55 turbo thats been rebuilt with a Garrett gtx3076r char, Ive got a vortex tank in the back, a decent size heater exchange and also have killer chiller.
I live down here in Australia.
Ive got a few ideas on new IC I'm going to put into it but any thoughts? its in a RS liberty or as you say 1st gen legacy.

With the AWIC Type 14 it has only 1/2" NPT which the true ID isn't very large. That always worried me a bit on some of these setups, in mine all of my connections of the 3/4" variety. With such a small hose a flow restriction will be greater in a sense. Have you measured the actual flow rate? And versus what the pump can actually do?
