same thing I have, just use the bottle for nitrous. Nitrous works much better but CO2 is way cheaper to refuel.

Re: (R_Rated)

Yeah but you've got a true FMIC. <p>The amount of flow that goes through the stock "helper" IC is pitiful. To have any noticeable effect I have to imagine you'd have to rip the front end off and sandwich between the condensor and main IC.<p>You might as well just go the extra step and rip them both out and install a FMIC and take a pass on the CO2 until later if the FMIC isn't sufficient.

Re: (StaggRLee)

Is it possible (of course everything is possible, but not necessarily economic) to move the R intercooler in front of the condenser?<p>I have not seen anyone talking about this, so I guess not?

You've probably got more than adequate cooling for the boost levels you're running.<p>Guestimating that kit at $500, labor to insert it between the condensor and IC at another $500... There's a lot better ways to spend $1000 IMO.

have you done an ECU upgrade? if you want more power - i think the best first mod on any turbo volvo is to upgrade the ECU

Re: (23109VC)

Actually, the "pre coolers" like the one on R have shown to be very effective as being a heat sink that saves the ic from being heat soaked too quickly. Solid enginering is why its there. (I've seen/done data logs)<p>Not saying improvement can't be made though and I would say that it would not be too much of a stretch that you would see some nice gains in say a 1/4 mile drag or maybe a just 3rd-5th gear run.<p><B><I>DO IT</I></B> (Ben Stiller)<p>but...<br>Agreeed, if you are still on stock boost, probably shouldn't bother with it.<p>And..<br>A <I>better</I> FMIC is still a better more long term application.

Neither CO2 nor NOx are Al Gore approved. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>
