Anybody ever adapt a Volvo FMIC to an FC? I recently bought a 945T and the IC is freakin' humongous!



Makes you wonder what Mazda was thinking when they popped the top mount on the FC.



If I pull my A/C condenser, I wonder if such an IC could be shoehorned in there?

I've heard of their use on first gens as it has a great area it could go, but I can't recall seeing one on an FC, though I'm sure (as is mentioned above) it's been done.



You should try it, they go for relatively cheap, don't they? I remember owning my old 242 turbo and seeing them for sale quite a bit for not a lot.



Man, maybe you should just get a Volvo. Those old 242 GT's are pretty sweet in race trim.
