i was wondering if there are any issues with a front mount in the rain or getting wet?
outside air doesn't actually get into the piping. its just a big heat sink with a pipe going through it.
Actually, many have experimented with water spray kits that spray the intercooler to increase it's cooling performance. C02 and NO2 have also been used.
No rain isnt a problem i run a cyro 2 CO2 system which basically freezes the intercooler. so you dont have to worry
Okay well I knew a guy that ran through some water and he blew his motor he had a huge front mount and it was a wrx so the intake was pretty high but it blew his motor so I did not know if the intercooler being submerged could have caused this problem or not, i just wanted to make sure of any safety precautions thank you!
well water could get in there if its submerged...
rain and being submerged are two different things.
I live in the NW, and it rains here a lot, and I have never had issues. Really should be not a concern unless your car is actually in water.
