    Air/Water IC (cleaned up)




    I plan to polish the blower, but will take it off to do it. The mount plate was a [Oops!] on the 'ol back muscles.

    Thanks Rev,

    At WOT and 25'F ambient temp the intake got down to 48'F! It pulls forever! Low to mid-range torque will really make you smile. Almost "V8-ish"!

    It\'s all about lower intake temps. & fuel. :-)

    high-boost doesn't hurt either

    tight and slick in pursuit of might and quick.

    That's a nice looking box you got there. what did you use inside as the heat exchanger? I'm gathering parts for a twin turbo 460 ford. I'm using powerstroke diesel turbos, similar flow chart to T61 although a bit bigger. They have 1.10A/R compressor and .84A/R turbine and flow 615cfm each. I want to do a water/air ic because an air/air would be huge for this application. I'm shooting for 1200hp at 18psi with 7.5:1 compression and aluminum heads. It's going in a 1969 mach1... anyway, what would be my best budget water/air ic I can make? would it work to use 2 or 3 8"X10" heater cores sealed in an enclosure and use one enclosure for each turbo? I'd use an A/C radiator in front of the radiator to cool the water and probably a 1.5gallon reservoir and electric bilge pump to circulate the water. Does it sound like a solid plan or a waste of time as far as the intercoolers go?

    Re: tight and slick in pursuit of might and quick.

    I used bar and plate cores because they are easier to weld enclosures to. The fin and tube "radiator" type cores would melt and roll up at the edges before w weld could be formed.

    The highest flowing pump you can get should be used as well. I am using a Shurflo model, 16-18 ga/min.

    It is amazing the difference you get with intercooling. If you have the space use the largest of everything you can fit in there, because 1200 horsies will need alot of cooling.

    Good luck! See wbsite:
