Have you considered making a brace that goes across both of the upper holes in the exhaust manifold so that it can't pivot on the single bolt?

ebay I would imagine. and it flows 100cfm more than my Garrett core (on my bench). neat aside: it appears the core is the same as the air to air ebay units, but the water flows through where the air normally would on the air to air units.

the flange actually bolts to 3 diffrent points 2 spots on the head and 1 on the stock exhaust manifold.. I dont think it will go anywhere "hopefully"

So any downsides to this thing? Does it not cool as well?

no idea, it's not on the car yet. as long as it can cool the air, it oughta be fine. you still have to buy a pump, another radiator, water resevoir, etc, so you can plan on being into it for the same or more as a decent air to air intercooler.

it depends on the surface area of the unit, and the overall cooling capacity, and especially the size of the radiator.

there's a formula here from corky, ya'll want it? it's for calculating radiator ssize requirement.

it shouldent matter much.. I am gonna have a 2.5-3 gal tank setup for it.. also the car is mainly going to be setup for drag racing so i doubt that it will have much time to heat up..

i've got a buddy with a turbo fox body thats got an air/water intercooler like that one (about that size from what i can tell...maybe a touch bigger), and it cools better than his regular intercooler did.

The air to water my friend had on his miata held about a gallon, it was good for about 1 or 2 pulls before it totally heat soaked the whole thing, granted that was with an M45 blower way out of its efficiency range though, I'll be curious to see how this works out!

What trans are you running?

gonna have closer to 3 gallons in my system and using a honda civic radiator as a heat exchanger with a 800cfm spal electric fan pulling threw it so heat soak shouldent be to big of an issue with this system.. not to mention the intercooler is rated to well over 700whp..
Gonna run the AW71L with some mods..

gonna keep the higher cr NA block.. the sedan was FT but I have run the higher cr before and liked it.. just as long as this block has the bigger rods i think i will be fine..

I prefer the term "chilly". it's not exactly cold, but it's not warm anymore either.
