intercooler setup with no turbo


I've been looking at getting a Front bumper from a turbo gst because i want to replace my Rs bumper. If i do get one, I want to fill the hole in the air vent with a intercooler. to give the impression of a turbo. But I know if i set it up to flow through my engine, there will be no benefits. unless having extra fluids is a pro, what do you think?

Pointless to have an intercooler if it isn't doing it's job. Is someone cooking rice?

Are you thinking stock side mount intercoolers have coolant in it? I think your better off backing away from the car right now and not modifying anything. If you want to look like you have a better car just buy a turbo wing and some gsx decals. You can buy a special edition gt-r badged mustang while your at it.

You can get intake piping and a filter that emulates the look of an intercooler...

But that's pretty lame

lols, well im building as i go. Im hoping my buddy lets go of his garret turbo...but hes having too much fun with it, i plan on rebuilding a spare 2.0 block to run turbo. I know intercoolers dont hold coolant but just having a coolant can would be a much better idea.

And AWWW DOOOD! the Gt-r badged mustang was taking it toooooo far lol

Ugh, Why does it have to be a neon? Typically you see these on Honda's, not wanna-be SRT4s...

Apparently Popular Mechanics doesn't exactly know how a turbocharged engine works either.

The wastegate only opens when the system reaches full boost. It's what regulates maximum boost pressure.

Why don't they just say, "The magic snail makes it go faster!" and leave it at that. At least then they wouldn't be getting their facts wrong.

RS, GS, GS-T and GSX all have the same bumpers, there are no turbo bumpers. There are different bumpers on different years cars. The 95-96 have different bumpers than the 97-99.

That pic needs to be a sticky since so many non turbo people think adding an intercooler does something
