    innercooler question?

    Maybe someone could answer this question for me...would a person gain any extra performance from running two innercoolers. And if not, how come. I know that the air coming off your supercharger is blistering hot. Is 275 degrees F in the ballpark. If it is, then is that to say that the cooler is bringing the air temps down from roughly 275 to a number low enough that it would not benefit you to run a second cooler. Any input would be appreciated.

    The physics behind 1 good intercooler being better than 2 intercoolers is the air loses pressure and velocity the longer it has to travel from the supercharger. The concept applies to both the length of the piping and the width of the core section. It creates friction and turbulence, resulting in less boost pressure.

    those tiny superchagers just don't have the air volume to benefit from two intercoolers
    the fizzle HE is a nice unit

    A good intercooler will get you to within 10deg or less of water temp. You cant really do much better than that with 2 coolers.
