I won't argue with you on that, but it seems to work fine for the WRC cars...they all use water injection. And short of bolting up a radiator-sized intercooler, it's not gonna happen. The location of the heat-exchanger under the maggie is not optimal, not much one can do to keep it isolated from engine heat.Originally Posted by V-Max
And the GTO kit has an even smaller heat-exchanger under the maggie...one would probably be better off leaving the intercooler off and just install the W/I.
Hey, if W/I can bring intake temps from 180* to under 100* in under a second, its not a bad thing. And it works in traffic, where no intercooler is going to do it's job well. Also, should one mix in meth or alky then octane is bumped-up considerably(a good thing that no intercooler is able to accomplish)...some Vette guys have added 50-75hp with proper tuning....again, not a bad thing.
W/I = Chemical Intercooling
And the V not being a street tuner car? I don't understand that...W/I is street-tuner??? That some sort of "Australian-Iron" closed-minded flame on W/I??? It's not a drag car either, hasn't stopped others from going down that strip...
