as bad as this sounds
big power low budget = honda civic
big power high budget = gt4 or 3kgt

of course the sky is the limit

I had ARC, check www.turbocelica.lv
Excellent quality but 550hp? No. 450 i would say
While it would work, you would get much better/safer temps with fmic.
ARC exchanges heat quickly but also heats up quick if you are not moving, so you need a fan on top of it, which also cant help enough because the IC is literally sitting on an oven called 3sgte. I also installed liquid squirters attached to the bonnet. Its pain in the ass, even subies dont do tmic at such target numbers, while their TMIC is set back behind the "oven" by a great margin..
I must admit the st185 bonnet looks cool with arc ic underneath, i like it better than RC bonnet looks :D

Another option is to implemet liquid co2 spray system on the tmic, but that depends on your needs because it is also PITA

.... seriously, they did.


I know, i got one, its a little sore looking but works :)
Amazing what you find on yahoo japan auctions

If Your Going To Do A Co2 Spray Might As Well Do It On A Front Mount Because They Make Kits For it.

Quick question, does the SVT cobra pump fit in the stock IC pump bracket or did you have to fabricate a bracket to make it work?

My IC pump is dead and I'm considering swapping in the SVT cobra pump since they are cheap and easy to find.
