What cooling for max 90* temp & rob tune ?

Post by Hinano » Wed Apr 30, 2014 8:49 am

I live in Hawaii and it's almost never ever above 90 degrees and is usually 70-80's. I am considering my options to cooling. I would have the robtune on a stock ej20g WITH a/c installed. I was thinking maybe a small front mount or even meth injection. Only thing about a top mount is I would have to cut my n/a hood but I could do that. How about just running a massive racing radiator?? Lol

What do you guys think?

For the radiator, I'd just get a stock turbo radiator. The factory cooling system is pretty robust, plus the AL radiators are known to spring leaks. For the intercooler, I'd go with a front mount. Since you autoX a TMIC will heat soak quickly and as you mentioned the airflow wouldn't be very adequate trough the hood on slow courses.

Yeah you're right. I'll shoot for a small front mount. I already have a new replacement radiator so no leaks but hope it's adequate.
