stock smic

Alright, I'm currently piecing together a turbo kit for my 2000 eclipse gt (I know you guys hate 3G's but whatever, I'm just looking for some help). Anyway I was looking to use a smic from a 2G turbo but I dont know how much HP they are capable of flowing so I thought I'd ask you guys. I'm looking to be putting down around 350 to the wheels and I'd like to use this intercooler cause I can get one for cheap, but if it's too small I guess I'll have to go with a smic from a supra TT if I can find one.

Thanks a lot,

The stock 2g (or even the 1g for that matter) is WAY too small. I think the surpa smic will be too small as well, for a 350 hp goal. A good intercooler is key to a well-setup turbo system. I'd recommend shelling out for a nice Spearco front-mount.

I don't wanna go for a fmic. I think the piping is way too long and I dont really like the look of one on a 3G anyway. I may try to get a side mount that was included in the AAI turbo kit that was advertised at between 320-350 whp.
Thanks a lot for your help.

start with the Supra side-mount,for the price, but if you got some money to play with dejon tool makes their own SMIC ..
scroll down alittle and you will see it...

That's a little pricey. But hell, everything in a turbo project is expensive so that's to be expected. I still have other parts to buy for my kit so my intercooler decision can wait for a while until I find the right one for my application. Thanks for your help.

if you duct enough air to a supra or dejon sidemount it should be able to handle 350 hp. you are definately going to need to make some ducts to flow air to the smic

Plenty of poeple are doing 350 whp on 2G sidemounts. I saw a 1g run a high 11 at the 2002 or 2003 shootout on a stock 1g SMIC. I was over 300 on mine, not quite 350 though. I saw veyr small gains going to a supra SMIC. Much bigger IC, same shitty location ;)

Thats not to say that I recomend it. A FMIC would be ideal, and is somewhat of a safety feature.

I have plans for one of the 12x24x3 ebay cores, which have been selling recently for $200-220 shipped. Piping and couplers shouldn't be more than about another $50 or so, and that intercooler setup should support the EvoIII 16g quite well.
