    Water to air cooler

    Been looking at this option since I live in Dubai and never gets colder than 20, well during the day at least.

    Was thinking along the lines of fitting a water-air cooler and having a radiator fitted in the smic/fmic location, then using engine coolant instead of water.
    or......
    What about using meth as the coolant

    Probably not the best idea considering how flammable meth is... if you want to keep the temps down, WMI and a decent FMIC will work.. charge coolers are bulky and problematic by design... the do well well in the right setup but not sure if they are any better than a decent FMIC and WMI... we have got consistant temps of 18/20 degs IAT in an ambient of 30 odd on the dyno with the above...
