I asked the same question to my tuner and he said " the standard fmic is big enough to cool everything for streetcars up to 400hp"


I'm stage 2+ with 345hp, so i want to hear other opinions also.

Btw, he is also racing cars on the circuits.

Still the standard clutch after 100k kilometers with stage1.
Recently did the forged piston modification and upgraded the turbo.

A new or reinforced clutch was an option but my clutch is just fine at the moment.

These cars are basically very strong and will withstand alot of power upgrades. Extra cooling is always an excellent way to get a bit more power as the engine can run a bit cooler and thus more efficiently. I guess this also depends on where you are and thus the usual air temps as to how useful this can be.

I got a 15 flex with a stage 1 apr tune.
Just run the refrigerant on your ac system
Through the water to air. It will keep the intake charge temp at or below the ambient always. Air to air upgrades in my opinion are a waste of money and time .
