NX came out with a new intercooler cooler kit. Looks perfect for FMIC's or single side intercoolers. I'll look into getting another intercooler ring so we could use them for our sidemounts. They retail for $492, but shoot me an email and I'll hook ya up with a great price :). The kit includes: 5lb bottle, stainless steel bottle brackets, 16ft -4 feed line, custom intercooler discharge ring, nitrous solenoid, arming switch, push button, and installation hardware. I would pick one up if my TT was working, but I have to wait until she is road worthy again :). Here's a picture of what is included in the kit.



Let me know if you have any questions about it and I'll do my best to find some answers out for you. I know one of my questions is how big is that intercooler ring :). Let me know what questions you have so I can get them all answered. Or if someone is willing to try this kit out, let me know.

After talking with you about this it sounds like a great idea, but needless to say, I don't have the funds available to do it now..:( :( But keep me posted.

so I take it that this is not something that would be worth the $$$ for everyday driving --- it's pretty much just for the dragstrip??

I'd just be happy to have bigger intercoolers in General!

You could use it for everyday driving :). I drove around every day with a 15lb nitrous tank sitting right between me and the passenger's seat :). It's better to be used on the strip, but it can still be used on the street. A 5lb nitrous bottle is easy to hide as well.

This is a much cheaper alternative to larger intercoolers.

Perfect!

That's exactly what I want to make the ultimate sleeper! The only thing that throws my car out is the two guages in my dash, but they look pretty stock. Oh yeah, and that whistling noise is a little unnerving too. :D I need to build my bottom end before I do this though. Looks like a project for next year...

I've actually thought of rigging up my own system before, when I first bought my WRX. I guess I could just ice it down, but fixing up a nitrous kit to cool it down would be cool :D I didn't think it'd help THAT much though, 50+HP??!!?? If I knew that then I would've iced my I/C real goodl last saturday when I ran at the strip. 45 degree temps + ice + hood scoop = brrrrrr :)

So...

So...

If an AIR to AIR intercooler operates on the premise of air passing THROUGH fins that cool the air charge, and you end up injecting a compressed gas at said intercooler...

What about the icing that will takes place on the surface area of the intercooler? Would that not inhibit air flow through the radiator (intercooler), thus negating its' benefit?

Just a thought...

I'm thinking they are smart advertisers...remember that Honda was not meant to be turbocharged, so cooling probably helps a lot. I don't think that it will make as big a difference on a car that was designed for turbocharging in the first place...

Just my guess though...

hrmmm....It says you can use nitrous, OR CO2. CO2 fills up paintball tanks, and thats a lot cheaper than nitrous :eek: Dunno if it gets colder or not though

Do you mean if CO2 gets cold at all? If so, yes. Colder then N2O? I don't know, but I've have them both sprayed on my hand at least a little and them seem the same. Of course my hand isn't calibrated for -100 temps. Does the metal ring go INSIDE the IC or just like on top or bottom?

so u use that oval ring thingy to spray nitrous(or co2) on the surface of the IC core rite?? No nitrous is injected into the engine rite??

If that the case, i've been thinking bout that idea ever since I took for car to the 90 degrees temp 1/4 mile track... sitting there waiting for my turn totally render the FMIC useless... the thing was heat soaked! :(

so how/where do u mount that oval ring thingy? behind the IC core? yea.. and find out how big it is... is it gona fit our side mounts?

Try having a TMIC while you're sitting in line for 20 minutes :(

Yah, I meant if the CO2 was colder than N2O...I know CO2 can get cold :D....Brrrrrrrrrrr heheh.

Thats a good idea though, to cool down the IC even more. I wonder what would happen if someone sprayed Liquid Oxygen into their intake hose...It would be getting more O2 (the stuff needed for combustion) and also it would be super cold! Hrmm, for some reason though I dont think the coldness of it would really matter a whole lot? Maybe it would? Compressed gases are FUN! :eek:

I always wondered what would happen if you put helium in your tires instead of regular air....Weight reduction time! ;) :p


Oh yeah! Someone tell me exactly what the FMIC does, and what an IC does in general, and how it works real quick...I think I know but I want to be sure. I have ideas.

:D Besides the fact that helium is extremely flamable ( I think ) you'd probably pop a big 5ft tall wheelie every time you launched :D That or you'd just float.
