Verrrry interesting concept. I wonder how much temp drop it'd get. Maybe if the intake line was made of copper and / or had heat sinks you'd get some significant intercooling? Just a thought from a machine shed mechanic.stormguy03 said:This would be different.. but would it work?

Hows about an intake line to a intelegently designed grill in the rear quarter panel? or rear deck. It'd require some, *ouch*, cutting and bending. Not a job for a machine shed mechanic, but someone with some highly talented cut and paste abilities.RAZRS EDGE said:That is very interesting. :mullet: But I agree with what everyone says about the turbo lag. Not to mentioned the fact that its kinda stupid to have the damn filter right there. WATER
Indeed, Howie from Arrowhead Performance has already stuffed a Magnacharger under the hood, and it still closes! BTW, love to see a some pix of your "ricer" STi is a mean little machine. I'm not a big fan of the looks, but I sure wouldn't want to race one, stock or otherwise. Where did you find someone with an AWD dyno? Someone told me that they are going to give the same treatment to the Legacy next year.STi said:LOL, that's one of the funniest things I've seen in awhile.
But for you guys thinking forced induction, I'd think supercharger before turbocharger if I was you..
