SC outlet temperatures...
Does anybody know the approximate temperature of the compressed air coming out of a B-kit SC at WOT. Actually, temps from any SC at WOT would be helpful.
I'm building a test bench for checking the efficiency of different IC's... need to know if Annette's hair dryer is gonna hack it.

i think it would be in the 200 range
anyway all you need is a base number to compare the difference.
say hair dryer at 150 degrees
outlet of ic 1 110
outlet of in 2 134
outlet of ic 3 90
the vary in outlet temps is what your looking for

this should be a good test. looking foward to hearing the results. which ICs will you be testing?

It may be grasping for straws, but the testing will give me something to do this winter and may even help me heat my shop
Annette and I are looking forward to seeing you again at Mudbug... bring all those cool toys!

I may be a little off here but if I'm not mistaken sandrock tested this with a lazer temp gauge and coming out the sc was 158 and out the IC was 102....

for a reference..
the intercooler i build delta's from 230-250 intake temp(yellow line) to 96-108 F outlet temp (purple line) to the motor.

bttek1 has the info on the RR and Riva intercooler.
I have the EMS system and it gives me manifold air temp on the display while riding. At WOT 8750 RPM's and 15 psi of boost the Riva intercooler output temp measured at the intake manifold is 102-104. Pretty damn good

Thanks to all for the temp values.
mxl16... I'll be testing the Riva, Rotax, Xspower, and one that I won't divulge right now because I couldn't handle the ing. I also hope to settle the debate as to which works better... cold water entering at the air intake side, or the air exit side (not a factor on the Xspower)
NitroShark... thanks for the great info. Do you remember what boost you were at on this test?
