if you're talking about putting it on the hot side of the fmic you can do it. It will still do the same thing for you. I know a few people that did it and say why waste the nice cooled air when you can blow off the hot air lol.has anyone seen threads on these set ups i seen them on super drag cars but how do they perfrom on street cars do they improve spool time?
second is can u put a bov on the that side of the intercooler and still have no compressor surge?
agreed, why do people even bother putting the in front of the intercooler?the thing with mounting it before the IC is that when it blows off, all the air rushing towards your throttle body has to stop and change direction to flow back out the other way. thats why theyre usually mounted as close to the TB as possible.
Yeah, but think about how stock Subaru turbo setups are. The charge pipe from the turbo to the intercooler is like 1 foot long and there is very limited space to work with back there. The intercooler is connected directly to the throttle body as well. There's really no way to mount their bov anywhere else.You also have to think some cars come from the factory, like some turbo nissans with them mounted on or very close to their intercoolers,hell subaru bov's are attached directly to the intercooler.
