2009-2013 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods Discussion, A6 coupe put down 620 RWH in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2009-2013; I can't wait to be daily driving mind at over 600+whp. Congrats and enjoy the rush!...
I'm guessing this is just part of the conservative tune then?
By the way
The chiller works off the AC compressor. So when your wot the compressor shuts off. So if you add timing, do a 1/4mile run at the end of the track you could see IAT's around 130* or so. That's when you have to worry about detonation with too much timing.
Here's my IAT2 table (it's basically the stock table accept I pulled 1* @ 140* column). As you can see, It gives timing with cold manifold temps & the car loves it! Countless logs while driving the car both on the street & track with zero detonation. This is why my radar is up with the super chiller. Obviously, as the manifold temp gets warmer, it pulls the timing... I have a couple other more aggressive tables in tunes I use at the track with better gas where I add 2-3* in the mid temp zone too.
So I'm confused. Are you saying that the Super chiller works better than a heat exchanger or that it isn't recommended for drag racing because the intake temps climb to high at the end of a 1/4 mile creating possible detonation problems?
The tune is critical for the chiller to work correctly. The comp chiller adds a tank and larger factory tank. When ac is off it works like a stock car. So the extra tank capacity works like an extra heat exchanger.
