    Add an air dam to the bottom of the radiator support. That will flow air back up and thru the radiator. I like the Mishimoto radiator and I run one, but it is susceptible to heat soak because of it being all aluminum. Heat wrap and a blanket for the turbo helps that though.

    Thanks for all the help guys. I ended up buying an ecmlink ecu from a member here. Ordered a speedy density kit, megan dp and ecmlink boost controller solenoid from extreme psi. I'm about 6k in parts and the car cost me 7k LOL.

    Honestly I bought a running 1g for 600 bucks with all the usual mods 20 over arp studs on everything some comp cams and at 15psi the stock smic works just fine so far. I haven't found the need for a front mount yet. I have a srt4 intercooler kicking around maybe when I turn it up over 20psi. For a street car I can jump in and drive anywhere the stock intercooler and 15psi is plenty on the stock fuel system.
