    Man, I love those cars. I think an SW20 is pretty much next on my list.

    What's with the Malaysian front plate?

    Can I ask a stupid question? How exactly does that trunk mounted IC get air when the car is on the move?

    Do you have holes on the top of your trunk lid as well to let pressure out? ..thereby airflow moves from underneath the car, through the trunk and trunkmounted IC, and then out on top? That's the only way I imagine it could work.


    Edit: My powers of observation failed me. I see you have a reverse scoop (thereby making it outlet) on the trunklid. Awesome.

    The one I have worked on had a drop vent in the floor of the trunk and an STI scoop on the trunk deck.

    ya there is a trunk mounted reverse scoop.. pretty sleeper if you ask me.. everyone asks.. and then they notice the reverse scoop..

    in theory the air should be going up.. but i have a single t-fal fan on the bottom of the intercooler where there is no flooring exposing the intercooler to the ground... the fan is above the exhaust which would push the air downwards so that the hot air does not come up... underneth the spoiler it creates some sort of vortex pushing the air into the trunk and out the bottom..

    as you can tell i have an FD 2step rad fan on the top i will be hooking up.. one to the constant running low fan pushing air downwards and one fan to a switch which will run high... in turn having both fans running.. plus the t-fal which i will be relocating the power spliced into the high fan swithc so when i flip it on.. the t-fal shuts off.. that will reduce my chances of burning out the single tfal when the other two are on full blast...

    the STi scoop to me is abit big... this scoop works just fine... i also ran into someone last year that was doing the same setup.. had the factory IC side scoop customed to divert air to the trunk and up across the IC and then out the STi scoop.. but thats is tooo much work and cutting... from now since owning the car i dont want to butcher it by cutting too much stuff... non if possible


    Old 'Rollas - i did not post the link up... i am 86boi on MR2oc... not the same name as on here...

    Norcal guys...

    there is a local guy here who has a set really nice but i find it defeats the purpose of looks... it looks good when you have the lights on.. and at night but when you dont and all you see is the projector its decent... a kind of an eye sore

    ^ Kev, let me know if you're going to go. I'd be interested in going too, meet some of the Calgary people and see some more old cars. I won't be driving a Toyota though... We should actually try getting some more Edmonton guys to go...Get a nice cruise to Calgary going.
