    i have been using a smic and now i need a fmic.. i can order a kit, but thats not cheap... or i can order an intercooler itself, and have a friend of mine pipe it up... so what size core should i get?

    i have a redtop sr20det with walbro pump, 3" exhaust, s14 t28 turbo, and a few other things... with the fmic, i will run 14lbs of boost...

    so what size core should i get? a friend of mine says that i should get a 30x6x2.. but i dont know if that will be big enough...

    suggestions?

    depends.. get something with a lower cfm.. the air will be alot more cool and dense as compared to something thats flowing alot more straight through.. since your running such little boost you will need all the hp you can get.. honestly size doesnt mean much.. its how its made/flows and so on.. although for the most part bigger is better

    16' X 5'

    Cut the bumper and make it stick out the side of the car.

    Yep.

    Pay close attention to endtank design on any intercooler you look at.

    Or just get the one I posted :hs:

    well, i would like to keep this on a low cost... if i can find a core, a friend of mine will weld the bends fo free... but if i buy a kit, it will get pretty spendy

    id watch your injector duty cycle when pushing 14lbs on a s14 turbo and stock injectors. it probably wont max out, but it will be up there.

    I have smic, s14 turbo, 12psi.... love it. dont need anymore power :)

    Get a hybrid core with endtanks off ebay then. its like $420 shipped or something. pretty much same demensions as greddy. my friend has it on his s14, its a nice kit/intercooler.

    oh and I have just a single 10" fan on it, wired to switched-power. Runs 78 degrees celcius, which is awesome considering thermostat opens at 76.
