I have been enjoying my 4th gen swap but with us being in the middle of summer the problem is with the AC on I almost overheat the car. I have been doing some research and the 100+ days combined with 4000 ft elevation and no humidity is to blame. I ended up ditching the stock fans and going with 2 aftermarket fans. One is a slim fan and the other is a Mishimoto 11 inch race fan (approx 2700 cfm combined). I also wired them to be controlled by my MS3PRO EVO. I would have went with 2 race fans but the passenger side of the radiator is too tight. Oh my God! It made a world of difference. Now on a 100 degree day my engine water temps never go over 208 with the AC on. Before, I would hit 220 so I would turn off the AC and the temps would come back down. My new problem is now the race fan blows on part of my intake that curves right in front of it before it shoots down to in front of the driver side wheel. This is driving intake temps up to 145-150. My question is should I route my intake towards the back of the engine bay or use reflective intake wrap on the current location? Also, the IAC for the 4th gen 3sgte pulls air from the engine bay at idle. Should I figure out a way to route it into the intake (before or after intercooler)?

So I have been looking at some different intake routing and this is my intake.
My Intake
That intake pipe that runs in front of the radiator fan is hot to the touch after a decent drive because of all that heat that the fan kicks out.

It looks like everyone else routes it close to the factory location under the fuse box.

Which one of those is the best route?

If it were me I'd run the turbo feed down into the fender well in addition to reflective tape on the piping behind the fan and possibly a heat shield. As far as the IACV if it was designed to pull from the engine bay I'd leave it as is, though perhaps think of a way of adding a filter to keep out possible dirt.

It's weird that your setup got you a faulty start. I remembered my friend who was a moderator for a Honda forum board. We was doing stuff on our car's and we safely boost our car's on 7 psi. I know that this forum message board doesn't provide you with enough information but you can check out this other forum message board called https://www.homemadeturbo.com/ there best in the business. I think it was an admin or a moderator that twin turbo a 4 cylinder Acura engine that ran very well. But the twin turbo setup was later sold to someone on the message board. The engine was sold to someone else outside of the forum message board.

Oh yeah, I use to work at a Toyota dealership but I still receive employee discount from them. So if you guy's is looking to buy or search part's for your Scion car's like an FRS(which I have) or anything else holla.
