    Interesting pic *Turbo 15F*

    Notice that it is the same intercooler Rotax Racing sells

    I saw that somewhere else and my first thought was that they were using the RR IC. But looking at it more closely, it looks a bit different. That little "fin" on the back and the tapering side is different than the RR IC that I have. Very similar though.

    It's definately the same manufacturer. It's just probably made for a slightly different application. From what I understand the intercoolers we are using are for some type of diesel truck.

    Well guys an intercooler is a very simple device, about anything that's big enough with the right diameter in and out will do the job.

    Check on rice burners sites too, I am sure you can find some water cooled intercooler you could feed open loop with lake water that'd do wonders in the heat of the summer....

    the spearco styled intercoolers are all over the internet and ebay for 300 bucks. the catch being that in jerry's testing that IC didn't perform as well as the rotax intercooler. I'd say jerry is a reliable source of testing.

    who made that IC Kawi setup? obviously that person knows where to find the "rotax" intercooler supplier/ brand name.

    you are right tho 11... many options out there, jsut find the biggest possible intercooler that will fit that has the right size inlets and outlets and sees a minimal pressure drop... i've come across a TON of info and products just by doing all sorts of google searches... and good idea, that crossed my mind. join a rice burner message forum and post a pic of the rotax intercooler and i bet someone out there would know who makes it and where to find it or something comparable.

    damn people will go to such extremes to save money
