    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 :hubbahubba:

    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...
