You canít run the A2A TMIC without a hood scoop. Youíll have to have cold air blowing over the intercooler, which means youíll have to add one to your hood, get a different hood with a hood scoop already in it. Thatís the reasoning for going FMIC with a 4th gen.

I like my A2W intercooler it works great! I tried 2 different A2A FMIC and it was heat soaking my radiator when I would run the AC.

Here is are pictures of my A2A intercoolers I tried out and was not happy with.




Here is are pictures of my current W2A setup.



I like the W2A because it is easier to route the piping in the engine bay so less chances of boost leaks. Also, it does not heat soak my radiator. The downside is that the water to air system tends to heat soak thus giving me higher intake temperatures if I sit at idle for too long.

I have that same hood. I still chose to go with a FMIC. I more use the hood to help dissipate the extra engine bay heat from having a turbocharged motor.

That hood will pull hot air out, not blow cool air in.

Do you run the hood full time no issues ?

Hello guys, as Tmiller and I am a fun of the TMIC for my 3rd gen. My car is currently built with FMIC but I m considering to purchase an TMIC A2W and I was wondering how much power is capable to produce with it.

Thanks in advance, and sorry for stealing the thread, but I think is relative.
