165 IC specs?

Postby nick931 » Wed Sep 01, 2004 2:52 am

Hi Folks,
I'm one of those glorified VW/Audi owners (see my www) and I'm interested in the possibility of using the IC setup from your 165 model. I'm curious if anyone knows any of the characteristics of these things? i.e.- pressure drop at X psi, efficiency, etc.

To give you a little background- I'm running a 2.0L that pushes out about 185hp at the moment (just a tad over stock) and is not intercooled. I want something that will support a good 250+ hp and will be capable with sustained boost on the track. I also have _very_ limited space in the engine bay- that's why I'm checking out air/water IC's.

Here's a pic of the engine bay I stare at:

I appreciate any input- even if it's just to pick on this antiquated beast!

And I thought our engine bay is tight. :)
I don't have spec for it but from what I've heard, it is OK with 250 hp on ST165. Just upgrade the heat exchanger and make the water pump constant run.
