    Intercoolers

    Hi I have read through the site but can't find a comparison between the riva power cooler kit and the r&d pro limited intercooler kit. I herd the r&d was much easier to install but I am wondering what one is better performing and keeps the air temp down and is it a big difference or very small any help would be appreciated

    I haven't tested the R&D intercooler but maybe someone here has and can give some input.

    I do have the Riva intercooler in my ski and it's doing a great job.

    Here's a clip from my Motec datalog file. That's a 163 degree temperature drop across the intercooler.

    The air temp extra is an extra sensor i have measuring output temps of the supercharger going into the intercooler.

    Rudy, air temp was in the upper 60's. I'm not sure of exact water temps but somewhere in the low 60's.

    This was with a Riva E1 supercharger impeller at 15.4 psi boost.

    i have the R&D pro-limited intercooler with the c3 wheel and the engine/intercooler cooling kit. with the 81mm ring i need a higher pitch than a 13/24. on the rev limiter @ 3/4 throttle. i am not sure how much the intercooler effects the performance in that way. so, i planning on getting the skat repitched to a 13/26 thinking if that is to much prop i can put in the 83mm ring to increase the rpms.
