waiting to see what the kraftwerks intercooler looks like although it is a top mount so i dont expect much. I really dont want to lose my fogs and i have so much sh!t crammed in the engine bay that re-routing the piping will prove to be a real pain in the ass.

If others are pleased with the intercooler from KW and it shows a noticable difference in under-hood temps then i will get it otherwise i'll run methanol.

If your car was on the market as a constructed sculpture you would have to call it l "Plumbers Night Mare In Blue".

JDMChris said that it was top mount and had a 3 or 4 (or maybe it was 2 or 3) H.P. advantage over a front mount, and that it used a cowl induction scoop like on a Corvette...... Imagine the timing advance possible with methanol/water injection and the I/C.... Maybe it could also handle more boost with both set ups. Nah, not without a major beefing up of the engine internals.

I'm doing good. I'm not sure is it true about the meeting at his shop.

I heard about it, but never confirm. If I know I will let you know ASAP, I want to try to sit in your car

i'm very pleased with the performance as it is no need for more boost for me. power on hand and still get's 35mpg. the hp difference was probably due to the piping being longer. my concern is the cooling. i want to know how many degrees cooler and how many vs. a front mount.

i'm very curious how they are going to pull off a cowl scoop. the scoop i saw being sold on this forum is sweet but it sits right above the brake fluid resevoir. they are gonna have to be pretty creative to fit anything there that is gonna make any real difference.

Are you referring to the manifold intake runners length?
Have I missed a post in regards to a dyno run and the results?

Thanks. So far the paint has held up very well. My under-hood temps have seen 150 unfortunately although not for long. Since i have bypassed the TB coolant lines and cut out the part of the splash shield that covers the passenger side of the engine (where the s/c unit is itself) my temps are down 30-40 degrees. Although when i stomp on it the temps rise very quickly cause the header is a couple of inches away from the piping which sucks. I need to get that header blanket and cover the whole thing hopefully that helps.

If i do get an intercooler i will definately paint the piping to match. More than likely i will live with it the way it is for now. Dumped crazy $$$ and time for a break.

If you are gonna paint it yourself use urethane based paint/clear. More expensive but much more durable.

I thought about that green silicone and found that a rat had gotten under my hood and gnawed through my super car vacuum line. I had to drive 100 miles round trip to get that size and kind of hose and had the choice of Green, Black or Orange. I wanted something original so Orange it was.
