Sorry for crappy cell phone pics (not including last photo).

My assessment of the Phmic thus far is as follows. Spool up is a little later in the RPM range (assuming because it has to "fill up" the massive intercooler). However, the spool up is just as fast or faster from 0 boost to 1 bar once it does start. Once full boost is reached (which it always is reached no matter what temperature http://********************/smile/emthup.gif ) it stays rock solid and the car pulls just like a NA engine. I did a lot of hard, full boost driving all over the place and the car showed NO signs of heat soak. Even after a lot of hard pulls I pulled over and felt the intercooler and it was still cold to the touch.
All in all great product! Can't wait to chip it!
Thanks a bunch Phuz!!!

Doug!!! I haven't heard from ya man, so I wasn't sure if you got around to it. Congrats, and just wait until the hot temps and you will really notice the difference from the stock IC.

(Unless its just the picture, the intercooler itself looks a little crooked.)

Bike much?

Re: (phuz)

Haha yeah it took me forever to get around to putting it in. I got my shop to do it because I don't want to mess with AC refrigerant and I haven't had a free week day since I bought the IC to get an appointment with the tech.
But the guy did a good job. The pictures may not do it justice but it is about as centered and level as can be. I'm very happy with the results. The only problem is the piping on the cold side gets in the way of my Kelly CAI. I have kind of ghetto rigged the intake pipe to just sit behind the fog grill until I can find a permanent solution to get the intake funnel to fit back there too.
I knew someone was going to call me out on all the bikes (slash the yellow pedal cars and luges) in the background. We don't get rid of our old junk very well...
But now that I have gotten the big mod done I can't wait to get it chipped and finish the rest of the exhaust (maybe will look into your 3" exhaust that appears to be in the works phuz). Then it will breathe fire and eat babies! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

You've just been watching too many (err not enough...) bikini clad women to see straight. Beer helps too.


I'm gonna go pour a glass of Pyrat's XO and coke.

He's either got a warped bumper,,,, maybe a little lip droop. Or it's is massivly shifted to the passenger side.

Re: (bobbrown13)

Haha I assure you that the car is not lopsided. Being to lazy to adjust the tripod and taking a picture on uneven ground results in optical illusions I guess...
