    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    Not to change the subject of this thread, but for those of you interested in alcohol and / or methanol injection the biggest name in *turbo* Buick alcohol -methanol injection kits just designed a kit for the '09 & up CTS-V a while back. Mine is sitting in my bedroom closet still boxed, and will not get installed until I have the 1st round of mods done on my '09 CTS-V, which is down the road a ways. I did post a link to a popular *turbo* Buick site a while back to the thread regarding the kit. I also posted on the '09 CTS-V section on this forum. My apologies for disrupting this thread.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    You talking about alkycontrol or alcohol-injection.com? I have used both of those kits in the past.

    Alkycontrol, as in Julio Don, as in Razor on TB.COM. There's a thread on it over there in the alky section. I run it on my turbo *Buick* and swear by it. I liked 100 octane unleaded VP out of the pump out here but it is about $8.00 a gal now, way out of my league.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    Like I said I have used that kit before. It is a nice complete setup, very similar to Devil's Own. I still prefer labonte motorsports...they previously made Snow performances kits but now do their own and they are far superior.

    Glad to hear someone else backing me up in the benefits of meth/water injection though.

    Julio was local to me and gave me considerable explanation of his simple kit. Also tuning help and benefit of his experience.

    Julio's kit for the turbo Buicks was designed with stealth being one of the top priorities. It appears that he designed the '09 & up CTS-V kit with the same priorities in mind. I do not know if he has that kit on his website yet. I would think that it could be adapted to the STS pretty easily.

    He had a kit for 04-06 GTO but I used the coolant overflow for Meth and hid an overflow behind bumper. 05-06 GTO has a radiator cap. Since they make everything in house I was able to speck length of all wiring and lines locating everything exactly how I wanted. As far as I know he will still modify a kit to customers specs. At that time he did not have advanced controls I see from others now. But the kit I have does exactly what I want and the red to green light system check suits me. I would not boost without meth. Just like the Super Chiller for water to air intercooler once you have it you never go back.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    I donít know if this STS V Super Chiller is going to happen. Coach is not able to make the Trek to Fl now so unless another STS V comes forward I cant continue. This is a great value for anyone that can make it to Tampa Bay Area. I have the parts and tools already for STS V so this is big disappointment for me. I was also looking forward to meeting Mike and working on his beast. Get the word out and find a volunteer, I have some clean ideas for this setup.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    Coach you havenít been able to answer any questions about your car
    If you could get me detailed pictures I could cut down your install time. I need pictures of entire system that means taking plastic covers off and putting car on lift or jack stands probably. I could probably cut build/install time enough that you would only need to stay over 1 or 2 nights. I do need system working before I can release so I can verify AC and Super Chiller performance as well as take pictures. You could probably help also if you donít mind.

    See what Coach decides. You could make a vacation out of it there is no Oil On The Beach here yet.
    It concerns me that I have only seen a V8 NA STS and it may or may not take a lot of time to get to fittings and such. I donít want to cut and splice AC hoses. I want to machine bolt on adapters that can be removed if you want.
