whenever i think of the IC i can't help but wonder that there's gotta be a way of cooling it, either spraying something onto it (yes i know this is frowned upon) or some sort of Thermoelectric cooling. this should in my limited understanding would act like a freezer on the still hot air charge going through the IC to get it nice and chilly.

Watersprays onto IC's are quite common. You can rig this up fairly easily to activate based on boost pressure just with a simple hobb switch.

Don't think tracks are too keen on you dumping water though.

It's sprays a mist which evaporates and cools the IC. You're not dumping water anywhere.

Hey Pavo,

rather than spraying something onto it, the better way of improving the efficiency of intercooler thereby reducing IAT's, would be to spray Meth' directly into the "hot side" of the intercooler.

You could place a small nozzle on the top and bottom, of the hot side end tank.

I did that on my HPF intercooler and it worked a treat, as Methanol is far better at dissipating heat from the charged air and intercooler core, than water alone.

We ran my 135i on the dyno with the front bar removed and with Meth' spraying into the hot side end tank, the intercooler surface was cooler to the touch after a 4th gear dyno pull, than before the run started.

On that particular day the car made 349.9 rwkW's I kid you not.

I never posted the graph as it seemed to funny to be true, then of course we went to the Creek and Chris managed to weld the "Feramic" clutch two weeks in a row.

FYI,

I was damn glad to not be driving the car when that happened, twice!

But your wise words, with regards my nugget always being off the road are heard loud and clear.

Cheers,

JD.

Ian, I'd like to compare our FMIC before install, so I can get some side by side photos. Hope that's cool.

My FMIC arrives late this week.

You'll be kicked out of a drag strip if you spray anything that makes it's way to the racing surface.

Thanks to Advan for fitment of ETS today. Temps seem to be lower by 10 deg according to P3 gauge. Car is way more eager to rev up top IMO

Tune seems to have adapted to FMIC.... more eager!
