If/when he posts good gains, you supercharged guys should join along with the Celica group buy to ensure the service has enough interest!!!jlitman said:UPDATES:
Okay, here's the deal.
After looking under my hood, they were 100% certain that they could get this to fit and work quite well based on their experience with the JRSC.
I will most likely be bringing them my car in April. They'll need my car for a week and will be fabbing either a large single core (~60% efficiency) or if they can find room a dual core (~88% efficient). Either way, you are looking at a nice gain in power -- laminovas are more efficient than standard A2W cores, which are at best, ~75% efficient, and it will be a vast improvement over no intercooling, which is what we all currently have.
As the prototype, it's going to cost me a bit more than it will for you guys (and I'm having them do the installation too), but they think they can keep the costs right around the RSX kit, which is under $1000 for the manifold+laminova(s) and another $225 or so for the water pump, lines, etc.
Once the prototype is made, they can CNC the needed parts for modifying your manifold, and have a quick turn around for customers.
Gains on a 200 whp motor should be on the order of 20-25 (10 -12% gain) whp, but it will depend on how much you are putting down to begin with and also whether or not they can fit a dual core in there. We'll be getting dynos for sure.
If anyone is chomping at the bit, and wants to see about pre-paying LHT for a kit to try to get a GB going (assuming LHT is also cool with this...) PM me. If everyone feels strictly wait-and-see, well, then wait and see
