Hey i have a few extra small fans from the cooling system and I'm considering running them on my IC. Has anyone tried this? Should be easy to make a bracket and mabyee a shroud. Whats the general consensus on this idea for a mod.

i dont think that would work to good. maybe if you made some kind of shroud around the intercooler to direct air to it instead. maybe hook up a hose to your windshield wipers and put a mister on the end of it so it will spray on the intercooler. my brother did that and it god pretty cold on his talon.

I'd weigh the pros vs. cons.

Pro: Circulates air through the IC when sitting. ect. (parked)
Con: Possible air restriction through the fans, then to the radiator.
Con: Heat from the electric fan motor may offset any possible gains.


IMO, I'd go with a alcohol/water IC sprayer, or a co2 sprayer.

Whatever you do, let us know if it worked out well. :)

If only my headlight sprayers still worked.. I removed them from the front of the lights and relocated the line to my IC, but the damn thing doesn't work.. what a waste of time!

you gotta figure out how much air goes through the IC at high speed. If its more than the fans can push you might actually be hurting performance.
