Did i read this correctly? Every aftermarket intercooler, other than something with a design and dimensions like this Knight model, will require relocating the battery.

Is that true?

The Knight Sports model plus the following SMICs all fit with the stock airbox and battery. anything larger than these will either require pod filters to make space where the airbox would be or relocation of the battery, or both.

Type ..........................W x H x T (mm) Total Surface Area Compared to Stock?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stock ........................295 x 115 x 65 = 1.0x
ARC M103...................310 x 150 x 105 = 2.21x
KNIGHTSPORTS...........300 x 160 x (75x2) = 3.27x
GREDDY.....................295 x 190 x 100 = 2.54x
BLITZ.........................280 x 140 x 102 = 1.81x
RE-Amemiya................Apparently same core as Greddy = 2.54x

Yes, relocate or buy a smaller battery.

The RE-Amemiya SMIC we were discussing above is the old version. It has the same core as the GReddy SMIC.

But RE-A has two new versions SMIC. (one is 1.5x bigger than stock, and one is 2x bigger)



1.5x version
Can keep the stock battery






2.0x version
Need to relocate battery, or change to smaller size battey

I'm amazed anyone still would be stuffing around with bored out injectors in 2019, might have been your only option 10 or more years ago, but not now....hope the cores aren't 20th century vintage.

If you haven't run them yet, I'd get someone to double check those famspeed twins too, there has been an instance over here of the compressor nuts not being locktited and destroying themselves in the tuning phase on the dyno.

Not really, haven't paid much attention to that area, don't think there's much in the way of sidefeed options. The EV14/ID1300 are pretty short and expect there's a few rail options for near stock installation with the pollution stuff though.

You don't mention it, hope you're not running a stock FPR with that pump. It won't have sufficient bypass capacity and even with a new reg, at that volume, it would be likely cooking the fuel anyway.

If you wanted to retain the stock reg and chance the modified injectors, I'd be running something not far off stock pump capacity. A slight increase in boost say to a bar, maybe the 280lph pumps. If you're going to put significant boost in or running a fair amount of ethanol, the 460 might be the pump to have, but primaries, secondaries and reg would have to change IMO.

Marcus and his mate were always making outlandish claims about stock this and that back in the day - and appears they still do - but they're not tuners. Andy from Adaptronic did have tests for a few regs a few years ago, there appears to be some redirect happening now even though there's an article listed on the website, but from memory it didn't take much for the stock FD piece to go out of regulation.
