the hottest that it gets is probably 105 but that would only be for about 2 to 4 weeks a year. normally the summers are in the 90's

I always say that the cooler, the better. So of course, I'd go with the Nissan Motorsports unit. But I'm just anal like that
I'm having my exhaust housing and manifold coated by Swaintech and I've also ordered the Nissan Motorsports Radiator. But then again I live where it's about 110 every day for like two months straight!

HAVE YOU HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT FMAX COMPARED TO YOUR INTERCOOLER? HOW MUCH DID YOUR INTERCOOLER RUN YOU ALONG WITH YOUR RADIATOR?

I have the F-Max intercooler. But, I also have the Nissan Motorsports Radiator. I need everything I can get to keep the car running cool. Especially when it gets above 115° almost every damn day! The turbo's not even on the car yet and it started to overheat Friday when I was driving to school!! I can imagine how it will be with the Turbo on there. As far as pricing, my IC was a through....some special pricing
The price is usually around $595 plus tax and shipping. The radiator was $312 shipped.

Damn!! $1,200???? Like I said, my IC wasn't something anyone could just go buy, I got mine through a good friend of mine (sort of a one time deal, ya know?). But, if you go over to www.spearcointercoolers.com/asemblis.htm you can see some of their current prices. Assembly 2-255 (which has a core size of 3.5” X 6.52” X 24.0”) is pretty close to the size of the F-Max unit and it's listed for $595. And spearco is one of the best there is! Don't pay $1,200 for an IC!! Look for it elsewhere!!

Yea, I have a turbo...not on the car, but I have one
Give me about three weeks and the car will be boosted already.

Damn! 10K Kick some over this way man!
As far as Boost PSI, I'll be at 9.7 on the street (that's what my wastegate spring is at) and at the track... only my Profec B will tell
Alex, I'll probably start it next weekend (the 14th). Damn slut, my IC still hasn't come in! Hopefully by next weekend everything will be here. My radiator got here tuesday and my manifold and turbine housing will be here monday. Woo hoo!!
