Yes I have come across that. Now that I’ve done a back flip on my TMIC sprayer I’ve changed to four of the smallest meth injection nozzles which will be distributed actoss the W2A radiator. Using the arduino I’ll simply have the pump activated based on PSI and run for a pre determined time. Once I get data from the IAT sensors it wont be too hard to work out, PSI x running time = X amount of pump duration to remove the aquired heat soak. I’ll be running a thermo fan which will switch on below a set speed (ie 40km) so the w2a radiator will always have air flow.

Be careful mate. If your neighbours know that your car has meth it will be broken into every night :)

Yeah, it’s a real risk i’ll have to take into consideration. I might end up being pursued ‘Mad Max’ style down the HWY by clapped out 90’s Hyundai’s operated by foaming and ranting meth heads.

It was interesting to note that the Intercoolers are also a heat sink, that aids the efficiency. I was looking at a thermo fan as well on my TMIC. I am looking at having it set up so that it get triggered at a certain temp..... There are sooooo many variables.

Last night I test fitted the Blouch 1.5 XTR and took some photos of the air pump crossover pipe which needs to be removed when fitting a turbo with a larger compressor housing. It will contact the pipe preventing the turbine flange from sitting flush on the up pipe.
Now of course I only removed it for informative purposes only and promptly reinstalled it shortly after. I took a large hammer to the beatuifully crafted Blouch housing and proceeded to furiously belt it in order to create the necessary clearance. We take cold start emissions seriously here.

Finished the machining of the intake vents. I plan to seal off the inner drivers guard to prevent the heat from the headers pre heating my water reservoir and intake. If you’ve taken the SH bumper off you would have seen these floppy foam pieces which are meant to prevent air from spilling behind the bumper and direct it into the radiator. They are as effective as using a tea spoon to bail out the water from the titanic, so I want to try and make a decent panel either side of the radiator to stop the air spilling out sideways.
The point of all this is that there wont be much air flow to the in guard intake hence making these vents.
The stainless mesh with be powder coated black and the aluminium anodized black.

Great stuff.

Although, by making functional vents in bodywork, you'll never be allowed to work for Ford or GM.

Tobyo, Are you willing to make a few ??? If so, how much ??
I would be in for a set, I need a vent for my CAI that takes in from the front guard.
Thoughts?

I had in mind to make a few sets initially and got a quote for only the CNC machining of the aluminium surrounds. They quoted.. (I advise you to take a seat, a big deep breath and hold onto something solid)

$1200 :roll:

Seems completely ludicrous and I assume they simply did not want the job. But if there were multiple orders the price will crash like the Iranian Rial. This was the same with the XTI badges I had machined. The difference between one and ten was a 75% reduction in price.

But, as always I get two sets of everything made when water jet and laser cutting.. I won’t do the machining of the recess as it takes a few hours and simply wont be viable.. happy to sell you the surrounds and mesh, but you will need to source someone to do the recess machining.. which wont be cheap unless you know someone.
