Default CCA 11" FMIC

I was wondering if anybody has any feedback on the 11" front mount intercooler that haynes speed shop sells. I am thinking about getting it because the stock intercooler sucks. I was wondering if anybody has installed it and what they think about it performance wise.

If you are running the stock turbo,,,, get the 6",,, if you are running or planning on running a big turbo get the 11". 6" is bolt in,,, 11" requires trimmimg or removal of front crash bar. The CCA stuff is nice,, and made "local" (Richmond area) and I have met Anthony who makes them,,, he seems to be a very knowledgeable,,, and is a good guy,,, Tommy Thrift,,, just a great guy anyway you look at it.

Oh yea,,, I am running the 11" on my car.

What fastmdpt is saying is if you get the 11" with the stock turbo you will get more turbo lag. Not worth it. You need to be running more boost with a bigger turbo for a larger IC.

The CCA 6" is good up to 350 HP. If you plan on going to a bigger turbo anytime in the future you should get the 11" instead since any of the aftermarket turbo kits will produce more than 350 HP once tuned properly.

Your stock intercooler is O.K. for stock applications, once you go beyond Stage 1 and start increasing boost you need to pull the extra heat out of the air charge. If you don't pull out the extra heat your computer will do it for you by reducing timing. Less timing = less HP.

Sorry real busy lately,,,MG has it right,,, There was a test done a while back compareing the stock IC vs the CCA 6",,, there was a significant improvement in the CCA. According to Anthony,,, one of the biggest issue is getting the flow through the ic,,, not over it.

What I am finding out with my 03 GT is that most of the stock parts are matched up pretty good for performance of the stock motor and replacing parts willy nilly will not work for us. If you modify the engine for substantially more than stage 1 power yes you need to upgrade selected components. I would not mdify anything without checking with what others have done and how happy they are with the mods. Most mods represent a compromise and you should know what you are giving up to get what you want.
