Default Closed cooling for engines over1000hp

All I seen is closed cooling for up to 600hp. Is there closed cooling systems for a 1200hp supercharged motor?

Perfprotech used to have a kit that Monitor products provided the heat exchanger and most components.

PM park35.

He's got big motors with closed cooling. I'll say my 800's (which are never run to that level to be fair) are closed cooled with the CP performance kit and the temps sit at 150 all the time with 140 starts. It's uncanny. Even after 25 minutes of running when oil has climbed to 230-240 the temps haven't moved. It's a wonderful upgrade......

Thanks for the help. Will be in South Florida Atlantic. Summer water temps 85 degree water temps. I'm just thinking if I throw big money in big horsepower motors I don't want my heads intake getting trashed by the salt to early

Park35...... Is there just not a lot of guys running big blower numbers with no closed cooling? Seems some big money motors like Sterling's they would want to protect their investment. Or maybe people have that much money they don't care salt eats aluminum very quick even with flushing motors after each outing

I made heat exchanger to my diesel Fountain project. It have 50m 8mm copper tube, cut to 70 tubes, if my calculation go right, its ok to 3000hp engine power. Maybe 2000hp to gasoline engine because efficiency is so poor. 3 way thermostat and full flow inside circuit and good air bleed is must. Very simple system.
