Forced Induction Water to air intercooler

  1. Hi guys, I was informed by my dyno guy that 10psi on a stock block with no intercooler is a bad idea. Anybody have any information on water to air intercoolers and know or any good manufacturers.

  2. Why not air to air?
     
  3. Air to water equals less piping

  5. Just get a coldside kit from b and g turbo kits
     
  6. What would you run for a intercooler.
     
  7. Anyone run a cx racing intercooler?

  8. The nice thing about air to water, is that air to water intercooling has an efficiency rating of 4:1 while air to air can at best achieve only a 1:1 efficiency ratio. In other words, if the ambient air temp is 100 degrees F. the coldest the air inlet charge can be is 100 degrees F. While a water to air system can actually make the air charge temp below ambient. The trick is fabricating a air to water system for a pushrod engine that is simple and cost effective.
     
  9. Pinging is bad regardless of how the engine is built and you can split the stock block without an intercooler. I would be more inclined to plumb a water injection system instead of an air/liquid intercooler.
