i went with mercs cuz i already had all the parts needed except the core from when i was making my own.
Ahh I see.

Sorry for this question but what is a wiring harness incoming flame :flamesuiton:

Is it a wire plug vs jmerc where you have to manually tap into the fuse?

I can not say enough good things about IMT. They put alot of thought and effort into making sure everything works perfect and is easy to install. Their stuff truly is a work of art!

On top of that, the service I recieved from them has been top notch. They even shipped my ac the morning before hurricane Sandy was due to go right over the top of them. This was definitley above and beyond my expectations!!

I am almost done with the install, here are a few pics.

Just curious how much more the meth dropped your temps than with the aftercooler alone?

This makes me wish I had the comptech kit. I like how you can have the blower off without pulling the whole manifold. And the aftercooler looks top notch.

You'll be fine as long as it's not straight water... 75/25% is safe for the aftercooler system

Thats good and all but I think he was asking about winter time

I don;t think that he wants a frozen Ice bar in his aftercooler systen
