    FMIC options .

    I currently have a regal 9ltr sidemount which i like but it wont flow much more than 300hp and i would now like a FMIC so i can fit 2 slim line fans.

    So which intercooler do you recommend and can flow say 400hp through a bigger turbo than a VXR unit ?

    Cheers

    first dips on your intercooler.... i would go for TX autosport they do an uprated one which is bigger than the standard. they also supply 2 fans and if you mention AOC the'll even give you a discount.

    People are aware the fans have nothing to do with the front mounted intercooler? The smaller twin fans are there replace the standard aircon fan which has to be removed to make space to fit the front mounted cooler in front of the radiator pack.

    Eh? the twin fans are there to improve airflow through the radiators as a direct result of putting a FMIC right across the front grill which reduces air flow into the engine causing it to run hotter.

    I like the courtenay one it looks good, just dont think it is capable of 400bhp either though.

    Pish, they're used because it's easier to fit them than it is to move the radiator back to accommodate the standard fan.

    I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the courtenay intercooler for 400bhp mate, it's a well designed intercooler. Remember, when you use a larger turbo it flows more air which allows you to run a lower boost pressure which in turn lowers charge temperatures.

    Depending on what turbo you use, i'm guessing a GT30 for 400bhp then your charge temperatures shouldn't be much greater than they would be for a K04 running 280bhp, although you'll be flowing alot more air.

    I'd be inclined to phone courtenay and see what they're thought's are, it may be capable of flowing enough air for 400bhp.
