I definately want more pics of that motorbrace :)

Could you please do some pics? Does it help minimize the so called bonanza effect?

I'll make some pics, with day light :nod:

It help well to avoid "bonanza effect"! I was very surprised about the gain :nod:

How happy are you with the KL racing intercooler? I've been hearing quite a few different stories about them. From excellent to a piece of crap. Which one do you have, the 60 or the 70 mm?

It's the 60mm thick. I'm totally happy with it, it work perfectly well ( as an intercooler ), nearly "plug'n play" and nice ( for me ).

So said, excellent for me :nod:

Attn!! There are 2 Versions from KL on the market.. the one is made of sheetmetal the others seems to be deepdrawn which has almost genuine bodyshape.. the sheetmetal piece is.. exactly... a piece of crap

I've the 2nd version, it have nearly the same bodyshape as the OEM... I don't know the other version...?

After some trials, I can say that :

-the cooling efficiency is increased significantly by the osmozed water + high quality anti-freeze!

My engine temp is more stable and I can feel it run smoother in every driving condition.

My car have also the Nissen cooler, and a brand new water pump, + a 87°C T-stat.

MadDog_945 11-16-2011 09:34 AM

this could be figment :)

the instrument got a resistor which makes the needle stay in the middle for a good amount of C° ;)

My needle stays in middle when using pure Water, pure Coolant, 50/50 mix and the one time i had to fill beer from my trunk in it cause i lost a hose in the middle of nowhere :) thank god i had 4 sixpacks with me :D one for me.. one for my engine :rofl:

Roy 940 11-16-2011 10:01 AM

Ah, I understand now why your car run well!!!! I'll try also to fill it with beer :):lol::-P
