If you installed an inter-cooler, it maybe restricting the air flow through your condensor. It too needs to be cooled down for your A/C to work properly ... You can either take off the intercooler, or mount it in a different location, or put a hellasious fan behind the condensor for greater air flow.
You just need some better fans.. A few customers put a rev hard kit on their cars and along with the kits they purchased some FAL fans which keeps the car cooler and not only that but it increased the AC CFM which made it really colder then before the fans and turbo was installed......
Chances are that your problems have little to do with air flow resrictions to your condenser. Historically, most aftermarket turbo kits place the turbo's turbine, which can reach 1500 degrees F, right next to the a/c system (compressor) on our Honda motors.
If you don't have one, or if the one you have is inadequate, I would recommend upgrading or desiging a new heat shield that will block the radiant and convective heat from reaching your sensitive A/C components.
Wow, my first post. Why are you using your a/c anyhow? It's freakin' cold here in Austin, TX right now! Any of you guys with turbo Integra setups in Austin? I really haven't found anybody to shoot the stuff with around here, but it would be nice...
a week after signal installed my turbo, my ac went out, turns out the steel clamp around the turbo and piping had a piece of metal sticking out and it slowly ate away at the rubber tubing(i'm an idiot, what's it called?). so now a/c works 1/10 times., and what a great time to stop working, santa barbara has been hot as hell lately. so many problems, about as many as it would have had if i installed it myself. bah!
