I apologize if this is a stupid question that has been hashed out before, but I can't find it exactly, so here goes.
Would it be possible/acceptable to run 15 lbs of boost or so with a meth injection setup rather than a front mount intercooler? I ask because the car in question is pretty much a track day only car, and I have had really nice results by putting the front end on a diet by moving the battery to the back, removing the AC, etc. I would rather not put the weight back on or clutter the engine compartment with a FMIC. Further, some of the rallyX events (and WVa roads we run) wreck ravoc on the lower front end.
Before I get slammed by others, I know that the Golf in not the best track day car or rallyX car, but the car is plenty fun and is cheap enough (we bought it new in 99) that if/when it is totaled by my crappy driving, I won't be upset. Just want more power!
Thanks for your help,
PS - if it matters, the bottom end is stock and the head is fresh with a decent port job and a 276 TT cam (which I could change). I don't mind adding a head spacer.
