interesting. do you have any pics of a setup like this? does it completely surround the intercooler or just in certain parts to help direct the air? I wouldn't be opposed to trying something like this once my build is done.

This only needs to be done with bigger boosted cars , lower boost the coolers work pritty good and you dont really get to the speeds to need it

If you do choose to do it then something as simple as a 1 inch piece around the cooler will help more then you would think

Got Jared's new coolant tank finished, it just needs to go to the powdercoater. This will be a product we will be offering in the very near future.
