My intercooler is plenty for the setup. It's a Precition 350HP core that's known to be one of the best not a e-bay special. Any bigger and it's just a waste of pressure. One of the main goals for me is to reduce pressure drop and to try to keep spool time as quick as possible that's why I went with 2" IC piping on the turbo side and only 2 1/4 on the throttle body side. Josh- by the time I was finishing up my IC setup I did acually wish I would have built a liquid to air setup, it just would have been more fabrication, time and money.

i see i might look into getting a liquid/air intercooler later on down the road but as of right now after seeing your car im trying to find a place to make an exhaust manifold because yours is just sick ... i would wrap mine in exaust wrap along with the turbo exhaust side and downpipe to keep the heat where it should be.

I know the liquid/air IC's are great for compact space but they require their own coolant system pumps reservoir, radiator etc. to keep them cool enough. I'm not sure if a system like that is good for a street car? IDK enough about these systems.

But yeah, looking good, twin scroll manifold? Nice. Whatcha doing for engine management?

Google it...

twin scroll = divided turbine inlets

uses two inlets into the turbine housing. this way you can build a manifold to divert the exhaust pulses more evenly supposed to be good for faster spool and more overall power. usually expensive turbos and custom manifolds though, and makes running external wastegates really tricky

Yep twin scroll!! Im interested to see how good she spools. Well for this summer im just gonna keep boost as low as I have to to run good AFR's with your chip but im woking on finding a cheap miata so I can run the harness out of it and run a AEM standalone EMS. My next investment aside form the body work will be the Mfactory LSD.

Still bent on that Miata thing eh? You could buy just a Miata harness and sensors if you wanted, but as much wiring as you'd save on the ECU install, you will need to do just as much to mesh the Miata harness with the Capri cabin harness. If you need a hand with standalones we can help!

Well after about 10 months is siting in a garage I finally was able to hit the key. and it fired right up!!!! I only drove it a few miles but everything seems to be just right. I dident install the wideband yet and I dident have a MBC on the turbo so I only hit 5 psi just to be safe. I'll have a better update and plenty o pics in the next few days. So excited!!!

I wouldent mind one bit!! I would love the check out your car as well. You should try to make it up here some time this weekend, I'll have the wideband all installed by then and mabie a few minor bugs worked out also but after the weekend the motor/trans will be coming back out for some wire tucking action. Matt, pics videos and more info are all on the way!! I haven't had a single day off work since memorial day!! I'm just waiting for my sesional part time job to rap up in the next month or so and I'll be hard at work to really rap this car up. But for now the open 3 inch stainless downpipe sure does sound mean
