Some of you may be aware that we are developing a TMIC for the MS3/MS6/CX7. Here are some pics of the assembled unit (one pic shows it sitting on top of the stock IC).





It has fully cast end tanks and a bar and plate core design. The larger cast end tanks keep the stock cast design (which allows for almost completely even flow across the core compared to folded end tanks which can narrow the flow to the middle of the core), but utilize a larger opening and core for increased flow and cooling.

We will be doing some testing and post up more information soon.

It is hard to really give a apples to apples comparision between the two. When we finish getting the information up about our TMIC I will see if I can work on some data comparisons.

We are closing down the $299 pre-order today for the TMIC. The price will go back to the $399 retail.

We are on schedule for having the TMIC going out in late March.

So does this mean the production version will not have the black coating that the "test" TMIC had? What was that coating?

The coating was black paint. We have powder coated the end tanks on some FMIC in the past which looked good. You dont want to powder coat the actual core though our you lose some of the heat transfer properties.
