Thats excatly what I want to do. My buddy has done tests on this and its good for up to 30 degress colder air. It can't hurt rightcraigjturner said:i think he wants to have a sort of cold air intake that sucks through a front mount intercooler. i'm not sure if this works but i have seen it done before.
Yes I know all of this but the intercooled air will be colder than the air my hypnotic short ram will be getting. Especially on these hot summer days when it heat soaks.SVTF4243 said:Not sure if the air cooled by the FMIC will be colder than the ambient air .
As stated above FMIC's are cooling the air AFTER it's pressure is raised...
because raising the PSI also raises air temp above the ambient temp
of the air before it comes into the charger.
You are thinking to cool the air BEFORE the pressure is raised...and an FMIC is not going to make it cooler than the air that is cooling it. You'll need to find another method.
Secondly a CAi while bring in colder ambient air is a long straw...most of the roots style chargers i've see use a short intake...they don't like to suck long ones Another intended pun[rolleyes]
If you logic is correct, then all of us should have an FMIC ...boost or not.pinacup7 said:Yes I know all of this but the intercooled air will be colder than the air my hypnotic short ram will be getting. Especially on these hot summer days when it heat soaks.
