View Full Version : My B-day present arrived today...

It got here today. I bought it off of Yahoo Japan through Nengun auctions. It all worked pretty seamless. All together including fees and shipping it was just a little over $200. I checked around before I went this route and couldn't seem to find one for this price in the States.

I have to say that Nengun was good to deal with and communicated well. The thing is heavier that I thought it would be, right at 14lbs packed. I figured more like 5 or 6.

I've got to get some couplers and hose and the thing will be ready to go on. I can't wait!

wow not bad. ya ik havent seen one the cheap shipped before.

Cool, did it come with the pump etc...

No, just the charge cooler. There was another complete set up (charge cooler, pump, lines, heat exchanger, BOV) for $150 that I seriously thought about but the shipping would probably have been killer. I'm not sure how long the heat changer is but once you get around a meter long the shipping shoots up.

I'm putting together my own kit. I'm using a Suzuki Hayabusa radiator (if it will cool a 1300 CC superbike it should handle the change cooler) and the same type of pump that Frozen Boost uses in their WTA kit. I didn't buy it from them but it's the same one and I got it cheaper. I'm going to take plenty of pics as I do it and I'll post everything up.

Sweet man, I'd be jealus if any of my cars were anywhere close to the caliber it would take to utilize that thing.

you should put a water temp sensor inline with your water pipes to see what your charge cooler water is doing.

good find

That is something I'm seriously thinking about. It would be good to know what the cooling water temp is running. The radiator came with the cooling fan so I'm thinking about hooking that up as well.

yah do it!

Awesome. Keep us posted on the progress.

I've still got a few things to get, mainly couplings and decide how to do the water lines. Darthripley and JustJoe put a 205 charge cooler on their 185 without modding the cooler so I'm going to go that route. They used the MR2 throttlebody adapter, the correct size coupling and stretched the coupling between the cooler and the turbo. It came out looking good and their not having any problem with it. I've got to get those two couplers plus a 1.25" to 1" reducer for my BOV. I'll get those ordered hopefully later this week. I'll post up pics as I go along.

Awesome man! Shoulda gone front mount though.. hehe. ;)

I'm not big on front mount. I just don't like all the piping in engine bay myself. I think for my power goals, the WTA will work fine. I'm curious to see how much difference its going to make.
