Same here. No turbo in my car's future. I'm not even thinking about SC'ing it but of the Turbo vs. SC route I would take the SC. This car with about 250-300 HP would be at the edge of power vs. control. I bet you could get around 250 out of the engine without having to get FI.Craigy said:
I'm still not interested in turbocharging it though - I like being able to floor it out of a corner and feel the engine pick up immediately and linearly.
For a mid-engine car don't use an air-air IC, but use an air-water-air chargecooler instead.fzust said:Any way to make this work? Perhaps a flat mounted IC with a scoop to direct air over the IC?
The side-vents don't have that much airflow going through them when driving, so IC efficiency would be very low.Eyelise said:Correct me if I'm wrong but there is room for an Intercooler in front of the passenger rear tire.
Actually you would mount the chargecooler radiator at the front of the car and put pipes from the engine to the front of the car. That would give the best result.If you went with an Air to water intercooler you need a separate small radiator. I suppose it could go there as well.
