Semper Fi: Give little Bill a call at Victory Marine. He advertises on OSO and he is an Rtech dealer.

Rob: You know I can't let you get away with any loose talk about intercoolers.

There are two things cooling the air in supercharged engines; the intercooler and fuel evaporation. Where you are measuring manifold air temperature on your Whipple, both things have occurred so it's hard to comment on the cooling efficiency of the intercooler alone.

I have never tested the Procharger 504 intercooler but we have monitored temps anywhere from 78F (@6psi) to 90F (@8psi) using 70F lake water during WOT tests of our systems in the boat. The only thing that makes this possible is having a big intercooler.

Nort: That is a sweet looking dash...having any trouble reading them all at speed? I'm always asking my customers, "What was the boost and RPM?" They never know...

Thanks TomCat..........that's why the boost gauges are right next to the tach's. Easy as pie to see together.

True fuel evaporation helps too The sen is in the back lower part of intake I wish it had direct port injection that would be nice vroom vroom
