FMIC intercooler to big???

Postby leekycelicy » Mon Jul 07, 2014 8:16 pm

would you think this intercooler was to big for my 165???

I know there are arguments for all intercoolers but im a man of extremes, the more ridiculous the better, within taste levels of course,

all im concerned with is would I get the same amount of improvement from a smaller one.

2 - an intercooler this large would be blocked by a large amount of the bumper so not in direct air flow, will this make a difference.

The bigger the cooler the more volume and the more lag, you want the smallest you can use for your setup.

For the intercooler I would say yes, for the heat exchanger no.
