I gotta say now that warmer temps are returning to florida its nice to now be able to be able run my A/C without sending my IATs into the triple digits.<p>Most importantly though, its also nice to be able to race up to high speeds before the intake temps can get over 100 degrees as well.<p>My car is filthy and in need of a bath but here are some pics of the new hardware.<p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting004.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting006.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting012.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting009.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting015.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting014.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting013.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>And I had them add a bung for my pending water/methanol injection system while they were in there as well.</B> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/KikiOuting010.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

Re: (juve021)

I forget the make, but its a 22 x 7 x 3 bar and plate design.<p>The complete job including resonator delete + tax was about $950 out the door.<p>I just found that the shop has some of their own pics up with the front end up at the following link . . . <p><A HREF="http://www.tamparacing.com/forums/lht-performance/642709-volvo-s60r-gets-lht-intercooler-piping.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tamparacing.com/for....html</A>

Re: My New FMIC By LHT Performance (StealthyS60R)

Nicely done. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Looks like all aluminum piping. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>One question: Is the bottom of the IC attached to anything ?

I'm concidering using those extra support bungs on the bottom to secure my lower lip when I have a chance though.<p>I've got a pretty busy day with friends planned, but when I have a chance tomorrow I'm gonna hook up the data logger back up for some intercooler efficiency comparisons.

You are going to love the FMIC especially in FL. IMO the IC is a must in the warm weather states, more important than anything else you can do to increase performance.<p>I assume the port for the water / methanol injuction is located on the cool side of the IC? That is where it is on Bell IC's
