Car had to go to the body shop to get the fenders pulled, been dealing with some weird vibration at speed, last minute trip to Ultra Miami, and then some life changes. I hope to work on it this...

Wrong, that statement s just wrong. Probably hypereutectic as Terry said. I wouldn't want forged pistons personally anyway. There is a reason OEMs moved away from them. Hypereutectic is nearly as...

So basically what you're saying is ford tested it on a concept and it was amazing. They developed the whole system and then didnt impliment it on any of their cars because??? This isn't a new idea....

Its completely different. Think about the volume of water flowing past the heat sink in a water cooled computer versus the chip size. Also the density of the heat source requires this sort of setup...

Sorry I should of stated I as talking without AC. With AC sure it could work, but my point is that the amount of BTU you are trying to remove from the water is so much, and the AC system so...

Without AC it is.

It is a bad idea, for the reasons I already stated. You will never get the charge air as cool with an air to water system as you will with air to air. The exception to this is if you pack ice or do...

My car is in the shop, but I can video it when it comes back. Mine isn't nearly that loud. I have noticed that the sound changes a lot during the break in. Before I got it fully broken in sometimes...

True true. Their clutch is also a no go.

an air to air will get closer to ambient than air to water unless you are wiring in the AC system. At that point though, just spray the air to air IC. Much better.

I agree, if you are seeing those intake temps you will need to do something. Inject meth is going to be your best option. If its 150F intake and 130F to your AC system hot side, you are just adding...

The other thing to consider, if you drive a manual, is that you will be running the A/C all the time (driving with A/C on sucks with a manual).

Water does have a higher specific heat and transfers heat more readily than air, sure. I've said it before though, its not:
Air to air versus air to water its air to air versus air to water to...

Oh you're pucked? I am using 3+ which is full faced. No experience with the pucked stuff here. I was told bad idea on the street bc of chatter and engagement issues.
This isn't dead. I got new tires that were too large and rubbed, so the car has been in the shop getting the quarters pulled out to fit bigger tires. This means repainting both QPs as well. The...

Bad idea. Main reason for air water is packaging constraints. You're adding weight and reducing efficiency. Benefit in better boost response and can pack ice (not if you're doing refrigerant). Same...

Weird. I don't have this issue. SAC or non-SAC? Is your engagement smooth yet?

Once broken in the steel SMF is very quiet. Louder than the DMFW, but not anything that will draw attention. Most of the time I can't even hear it with windows down.
02-23-2013, 02:11 PM
35 miles? Dude... break it in. It takes 500+ miles. Are you also going to judge the way the clutch drives after 35 miles of break in? People on this platform are so damn antsy sometimes. If it still...

Hahahaha Always Sunny is the best.

The actual smf looks thicker than what I got, but I could be remembering wrong...

Like I said, your flywheel doesn't look like mine. Whatever it is, you didn't receive what I did (non-SAC SMF and stage 3+).
02-19-2013, 03:32 PM
Your SMF looks a lot thicker than mine did. I'd ask Spec about that.
EDIT: Looks like you're already aware.
02-18-2013, 02:32 PM
Contact Spec if it isn't fitting. I like my Stage 3+ a lot. It is still grabby sometimes, but I haven't had a chance to really beat on it. To be honest I only use first gear in traffic and around the...

Any more details on the bend at the rear turbo? It is extremely tight there and it seems that the radius would be even tighter here. I am really interested in small mushroom or cone filters at the...
