custom dual intercoolers
hey, guys i just wanted to share some pics of a dual intercooler set up that i made as an experiment. well it did not work at all it made my ski lose 300+rpm and the ski had a major loss of power from idle to WOT... i guess these intercoolers just dont flow very well.
what did work great and what i was hoping for was the throttle body side intercooler was colder than the supercharger side by 7-9 degrees after a wide open run. i do have some other ideas that i may be playing around with over the winter.
well thats another one in the garbage....

Erik, i tried this years ago and my results were just like yours. Big power loss
Another thing i tried and didn't work was water jacketed IC plumbing. Total waste of time
