Got the car tuned at Area1320





Being limited by quick-rising intake temps, was recommended to get a meth kit / new top mount / both? But like I'm broke so will probably just get the meth kit to use as a safety to keep intake temps down while keeping the power on the conservative end.


Then had my re71r tires put back on, height adjustment and alignment. Love the look but quickly realized after driving it's a tad low for what I want to do lol

Honestly, and not knocking the shop, your temp will be better on the street with the hood closed. Just blowing air on the motor the way it's set up is not giving you any good air flow past the intercooler. If they had mounted a fan to blow down on it and actually cool the charged air, vs the motor bay, well yea... see where I am going?

Don't forget to top off your blinker fluid.

early photo, they ended up putting the fan right up on the intercooler for the later runs to see if that helped. The temps were rising like 40(?) degrees during the pull itself which he said was a lot more than he is used to seeing with other tmic's. So I don't know

Phenolic spacers are supposed to help a lot with intake air temps. How much do you know about the intercooler that's currently on the car?

Also I would love to see the graph. Not very many dynoed 71 HTAs out there that I've been able to find.
