the mHawk has VGT, so lag should be lesser then the CRDe

/me needs to find someone with am mhawk/Crde and examine the finer details of the placement

Yup! Thats the one.
The IC size is a decent one for the engine but an FMIC would be better suited IMO.
There has to be a good advantage point for doing that setup, apart from space.
The engine has been designed by AEL or somthing, of Australia. Same guys who designed the 2.2L engine for TATA. Infact if you match the engine specs they are VERY similar.
Only difference is that TATA has it tuned to 140BHP, probably running higher boost and Mahindra settled for 120BHP probably for efficiency and reliability.

One of my friend has a Turbo Indica and i noticed the air scoop back when he bought it couple of years back. Was interesting but that question always lingered, that if that scoop is actually helping much, if you ever notice the grill blocks smooth air-flow into the scoop.

Need to take a look at the Safari 2.2 VVT's engine bay. A collegue owns one maybe ill check it out.

low boost pressure? The non-CRDe scorpio runs around 22 psi

22PSI Boost.....Never imagined that! But read elsewhere on the forum that its around 17-18PSI.

My bad! Ill have to get my facts right. But the question of why such a placement of the IC still remains unanswered.

""But the question of why such a placement of the IC still remains unanswered."

forgive me for my ignorance, but such placement as in 'Good' or 'Bad'?

would a wire mesh opening on the bonnet above the intercooler help? it would be aesthetically more pleasing than a scoop from the scorpio.

here's a thought- get an FRP bonnet made with the requisite vents for cooling, paint it black,Rice away!
preserve the stock bonnet for when you want to sell the car.
what say? Practical? or pipe dream?

My non-crde motor runs 13-15 psi. I have an Autometer boost gauge set up on the dash which should be reasonably accurate.

Rain/water and other debris entering the engine bay and damaging the intercooler is what I'm afraid of. If that's taken care of , I'm game for anything

Does adding a boost gauge involve a lot of work ? Or is playing around with the turbo's plumbing better left to people who really know what they're doing

Not a pipe dream, very much practical and this is the best option. Added benefit would be lighter weight.

How do you think rain water is going to damage the intercooler?? Rain water will damage the intercooler as much as rain water will damage the radiator of your car.

Regarding debris getting stuck in between the intercooler fins. Clean the fins when it's dirty or add a fine wire mesh inside the bonnet scoop to prevent debris from getting inside.
