    do you have the vac. lines run to the manifold? should be someplace after your TB.

    No IC = Bad. That is unless you have water injection or something.

    congrats man.. oh btw, your going to blow up that motor with no ic. even with 1psi the intake temp is incredahot. unles you plan on water injecting every time you have possitive manifold presure, i sugest an ic.. its not like i blew up 3 motors because i didnt have one or anything.

    ur bov wont work unless its hooked to manifold vacume and its adjusted correctly.

    you got it hooked up to the right spot. im guessing ur bov is adjustable.. you must adjust it so that the plunger inside is just barely closed while at full vacume.. idle.the valve is only suposedto be open while at full vacuume while theres presure in the intake.

    Gimme a fricken break. A motor will not blow up just becasue there is no intercooler. It's not gonna make as much power, and the tuning will need to be more conservative but it's not gonna blow up at 1psi. You blew up motor's because you started off with no E/M at all.

    i didnt say it would blow up at 1. anyone can run 1psi on any motor without a problem.

    I am running 18 psi in my car without water or an cooler.

    I am running 20-21 psi on my motorcycle without an intercooler.

    Strange advice :?

    what car is that? the 1.9 isn't a high boosting motor to start..18psi without IC sounds fishy to me.

    maybe if you had 40' of piping to cool the charge down. 18psi would raise your intake temp to arround 500* on a cool day..

    if your boosting an escort motor that high with no ic, it wont last long.

    All depends on which turbo you are talking about. I am running a Garrett turbo much larger than the stock IHI, intake charge is no where near what it used to be with the IHI. Fuel is another determiningfactor.

    I run 110 leaded race gas in my bike at all times, don't need that much for the Escort.

    Someone had better get me to turn the boost down, have been running the car for a long time with lots of boost, used to run a 40 shot of NOS also. Must not know what I am doing, went [email protected] mph with turbo and NOS like 3 or 4 years ago, went [email protected] mph on turbo only this June at Milan dragway.

    And this 1.9 motor isn't exactnly stock either

    I do agree that an intercooler is always better than not having one, and if money weren't an issue when I was really into the car yeas ago I would have had one on there. Running NOS used to cool the intake charge dramatically. I use to pick up 15 mph with a 40 shot of NOS, goes to show that you can get more than the advertised jet size due to cooling effect with turbo and supercharged applications.

    The new turbo kit I have more my bike that I am installing has a nice intercooler, costs about a grand.

    Not running an intercooler won't hurt anything.

    Running nitrous to cool your charge because you don't have an intercooler is retarded. Intercoolers are used to deter detonation, and nitrous does the exact opposite, no matter how cool it makes it.

    I ran 19psi on my Merkur without an intercooler. Anyone that thinks it's fishy needs to look into '80's Fords. 84-86 Thunderbirds and all Merkur XR4Ti's came from the factory running 12-15psi without an intercooler.

    .. and 18psi is NOT going to make your intake charge 500*. That depends on the turbo, and trust me, you'll have to try really, really fucking hard to get your charge over 350*.

    This thread bothers me. :(

    Let me refraze that, the purpose is NOS wasn't to cool the charge, it was to spool the turbo up faster, and make more hp. My point was picking up more than 40 hp with a 40 hp shot of NOS due to cooling, showing that it did cool. I will second the this thread bothers me.

    Heres a link to where I am at with the engine currently, had to put a new crank in due to accessory pulley bolt coming loose and tearing the crank keyway up pretty bad.
