    Do you do your own work on car? I’m looking at the black plastic covers on the spring lock connections on AC lines at fire wall drivers side. I cant tell if they are just security covers or if they actually hold the conectin together. Do they just hinge and slide off? I’m trying to determine if they are standard tube O Ring spring lock and what diameter the tubing is? Just slide a caliper over tubing and give me the OD.

    When are you thinking of coming to FL?

    No, i hardly touch my own car. I work a service shop, so i let them do it all.

    I am scheduling a vacation within the next month. I may end up renting a car and going to miami, unless you want to trade cars for the week.

    See if your tec can look at the AC couplings on your car and determine if they are typical Spring Lock quick couplers and what size they are. All I can see is black plastic that may just be a cover. They are near where the expansion block would be if it weren’t hidden inside car LOL. That is near windshield on drivers side. I have only seen pictures and it would be big help as far as having parts here for whatever I decide to do. Thanks

    The Schedule sounds good. I only have one working car, If my TDI were running you could use it but some how I cant picture that. Going from STS to beater VW. GTO is down untill I do sevral big projects. Everything is on hold for Super Chillers now.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    What series SC is used on the STS V? like is it a 112, 122, tvs1500 just wanted idea what compare to.
    Do I understand this? A XLR V has same engine as STS V for a mere 105K?

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    That would be correct sir. The air intake is different, but other than that same engine.

    Any word on this project? I would be interested at a reasonable cost.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    I've been talking with STS_Chiller, he now has the ability to do all the parts at his own shop. I am scheudling to make the trip from ohio to St. Petersburg shortly here! Just need to find out if I drop the car off to him for a full week if that would be enough time to get it finished.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    The SC that the STSV & XLRV uses is the M122 Eaton Blower. The 1900TVS blower was not available at the time production started on the STS & XLR V's.

    The XLRV does share the same engine, but there are a few small differences. Internally they are the same...

    Thanks,

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    Thank You M122 was what we were hoping. I’m at the shop working on Camaro SS Super Chiller tonight, it should be very similar to the STS V. 550 HP has confirmed he is coming from Ohio but hasn’t given us a date yet. But he is next! The Camaro has enough room up front to move in, I expect the STS V to be more complicated because of less room.
    We bought a complete STS V Blower / Intercooler be here Tuesday. We want to see what a intercooler upgrade would cost. Its my understanding the 4 tubes are less than efficient. Also try and mount it to something else for a shop Beater. I’m thinking a 4.6 Interceptor and use it to test products on.

    Re: The ultimate intercooler upgrade!

    If you should develop a kit that can be done at home or a shop then I would be interested. I know D3 has a set up on there web site looks good. I don't know if it is in production as yet.
    Thanks 550 for giving of your car so that other may share in the fun. Lets talk cad03sts@mac.com when you get a chance,
    Russell

    Sadly, A blower that is only about 60% efficient -- no matter how you pan it out.. If there was a way to 'graft' the TVS1900 or 2300 series blower to this car .. we wold no longer be cooking with pine needles.. but LP gas..

    ... All the more reason I keep penny pinching for a ZR1 soon
