Anybody out there used one of these? have any idea if they work better then our stock one's?

Pretty cheap if they would work better.....

Or do I get to be the first to try?

Looks like a nice product, if you mount it upside down you can use the drain to bleed the system easier. I think anything added to the factory system would help out with the charge air temps. Interesting find!

my bro found it, he is getting one for is sc v1, adding 2 7 in fans and an icebox in the trunk. He should have some freezing IAT's. He found at idle his IAT's increase 50 degrees, no wonder he was choking so bad at the strip.

I've though about running something like that from one of the many vendors that sell that kind of stuff like CX racing but I just couldn't make myself do it. I ordered a D3 but if it doesnt ship out today so I can have it on be the lsx shootout one of these might get the nod.

you did? I'd love to know what your IAT's were before and after you got it.

Where are you located? I wouldn't mind assisting in the install if you are close to Phx.

So the unit came in and it is installed. The way I installed it made for a VERY tight fit behind the grill. I wanted it positioned so that I did not have to relocate the power steering cooler and keep the original exchanger. I plumbed the new exchanger in series with the old one. There is a flange that hangs down from the metal bumper. I drilled holes and hung the exchanger from it with M8 bolts. I positioned the core so that the petcock is positioned upwards and used as an air bleed. I removed and cut the foam bumper to clear the petcock area. All in all it came out nice. I did not get the chance to datalog the AITs as of yet but I can tell you that the lid feels much cooler for longer after idle time. I will log the AITs tonight at Atco when I run the car.

looks great! Let use know how well it works!

Wow looks sharp! I can't wait to see the new AIT's

Would you also lost the hoses you got to make it work? So I can order all at once. I think i would paint mine black too since my grill is black... So it all blends. Man more stuff to order lol!

Honestly I just used what I had in my shop. I used some AN fittings I think they are -8 or -10. Use two 90 degree 1/2" NPT to AN coming right off the core. Then a 90 degree AN to pushlock for the top port and a straight AN to pushlock for the bottom. The only other thing I used as a short 90 degree 3/4" coolant hose. Oh and hose clamps.

oh ok, well I'll just have to look at it then and make a few trips to the store.

Thanks for the info though that will help.

I'll be interested to see if it changes anything. One was installed on a ford truck with a SC and it just returned to cooler temps faster I think was the results, but didn't really run any cooler...

oh yeah, how hard was it to remove the bumper? Just a bunch of the plastic rivets?

I found the same one when I was searching for my STS-V. I am going to add one or a similar one to my factory system for added cooling and additional fluid capacity.

(Read customer testimonials)

CO2 "Cryo spray kits

Worked well on serious boost (16-25psi) C5 & C6-1000rwhp twin turbo cars, & for drag racing applications.

You get "CO2" refills at most welding/gas suppliers. Way cheaper than NO2 refills.

Honestly I did alot of reasearch with CO2 as a cooling medium in the past. This includes an intercooler integrated into the manifold and passing CO2 through it. The Mass isn't there compared to water. Spray the intercooler down with water or ice water and it will drop the temps dramatically.

Blitz,

I'm talking about spraying over the H\E core not the I/C. You can actually freeze/ice over the H/E if you use CO2 spray kits (Hoops) over the H/E. We have seen drastic AIT temp drops (60-80 DegF)

Like someone else said, you spray this when static/stopped in stagging lanes, before you fire the engine, not while running down the strip.

Thanks,
George

I ran the car at the track last night and WoT were way better. Mind you I run meth but the before and after Delta T are night and day. Keep in mind that no matter what exchanger you have it's not going to stop heat soak at low speed idle or any time you are not in boost. When the supercharger is in bypass the air goes around the intercooler and you also get radiant heat from the engine on up to the AIT sensor.

any updates? Wonder if you can any data now regarding the IAT temps

Maybe with serious mods. I still have not seen heat soak or power loss with 630hp and stock cooling...
