Hey fellas...im looking to get some sort of cooling for my s trim and i am stuck between getting a front mount or meth injection...ive been trying to weigh out which one would be best and im having trouble deciding, one day its front mount and the next its meth....also keep in mind that if i get the meth i will not have the car tuned for it so if it runs out then i dont have to worry and its still good for about 15-20 wheel...i like the idea of meth because you dont have to worry much about heat soak, but a front mount is permanent

I went to an air to air for the simplicity of it. I just get in, start the car, and drive it.

I drive 90 miles one way to the closest track. I get there, tech in, then beat on it, then drive home. I never have problems. Matter of fact the pipes to the throttle body are always cool.

A link would have been helpful Steven :D

I did the treadstone TR10 36 x 10.5 x 3.5 intercooler and it fits perfect (had to delete the power steering cooler though, no big deal.)






I would advise that you rought your IAC on to the boosted side of the intake (I had a massive leak in the pic above if your kit isn't already setup that way.)

Other than that a good bypass valve and a Lightning IAT that you can screw in is pretty much it.

This is pretty much what the piping from the blower to the intercooler will look like after you clock the blower (this is not mine.)

Get someone to bead roll the ends and use 4 ply couplers and t-bolt clamps


Jive pepper helped me out a lot over at MPH, harass him :D

Hopefully the guy who PM'd me (supercharged03gt) get's this, sorry man I don't have enough posts to PM you back :( (Steven you might send him a PM that I answered his question here.)

About the BOV, I am recirculation because I'm running a vortech and the MAF is before the charge side of the piping. I'm running a mini race vortech as we call it on MPH but otherwise it's known as the one with the blue top (you can get it through MPH or through summit.)

Here's what it sounds like

No problem man, if you need anything just let me know.

Here's the best pic I have of the BOV


You can see where the (should I call it ribbed ha ha!) flex hose is coming from the BOV and routed back into the power pipe.
