    Please explain this with detailed info and pictures. The only way I can see that is by doing what that other dude did and that was some freaking work..... or are you talking a meth kit? :scratch:

    if your doing a front mount then there's really no need for meth, the other guy that did it on here got his temps to like 10 degrees over ambient i think, meth isn't gonna do much if you get the charge temps down... meth is just kind of a band-aid, and after seeing what it does to engine parts after prolonged use, i wouldn't touch it. Same with E85, they are about as corrosive as leaded fuel

    running an IC, plus meth, plus race fuel is going to let my engine ingest as much timing and boost as possible not so much bringing the charge temps down, im gonna get the 18psi kenne bell kit so i want everything as efficient as possible

    dont you think meth plus race gas is kinda pointless, people run meth so they dont have to run race gas, because it give a higher octane rating. I dont think its gonna help you out too much, esp not at 18 psi.

    I understand that, I am not as stupi as I am.
    He said intercooler kit for $200. The KB discharged directly into the plenum. So he would have to fab a system like that other dude did and thats gonna be WAY more then $200. The only thing I can see that will cool a KB for $200 is a meth kit. :shrug:

    well the only available race gas around here is 100 octane, plus its not pointless as the timing increases

    yea i totally agree with that, my post before wasnt in reference to anything that you said. Just to get an intercooler is gonna be at least 200, plus tubing, and getting the plenum TIG welded, and machinework, that was a pretty ambitious job, and the final product was way impressive to me

    that kit costs around 200, includes the IC and some other goodies, then the other kit costs around 85 for boots and piping, everything else is all fab work and done by me

    that car (shell) in the background beat to ****, did that come out of washington state?

    we use to know a dude cruising around the streets of centralia named jesse who had a car that looked identical. it was beat, i believe it had straight pipes and a 4-speed manual or something like that?

    i see your in california, and im curious..
