    Look at these intercoolers

    No specs on HP or thermal exchange.

    Interesting.... Lindsey Racing deals with Porsche 944's.... I may have to take a closer look as I have a 944. This may actually fit on a Honda. 6, 8, 10 or 12" pipes.

    I wonder if you could use one to supplement the stock i/c without too much restriction.

    Hey Rodneyae, how's your intercooler working. Can you tell a big difference.

    So far so good. I am planning another test this weekend. As with all the rain there has been a lot of trash in the lake. Big diffrentce in acceleration. The big test will be this summer when the lake water and air temps are hot. I will post some numbers if I get out this weekend.

    I would not use an automotive type intercooler, only a marine duty.
    The automotive are designed to circulate a clean non-corrosive coolant. Saltwater is neither and fresh water is not clean and could stop up the cores.

    I can see a marine duty maybe anodized or some special aluminum being better for salt water especially if not rinsed but I don't see the clean water problem. I would think if the particles are small enough to flow through the filter screen they would go through the core. I know they will on mine. There's no difference in size in the stock cores and the auto I have. Even though, I may go into saltwater once a year, I always rinse my motor when I get home. I know the core is not as good as marine but I want it to last as long as possible. I may be wrong here, but I'm not going back to stock.

    The core contamination is also very dependent on a self flushing design that gives sand/mud no place to settle-out/clog. The automotive duty exchangers do not need this feature.
    The 12X Honda's block will already trap sand easily and I don't know if the stock intercooler is self-flushing since I was too lazy to check mine when I replaced it with my Nitrocooler. Honda definitely did not finish their "homework" on sand entrainment.....
    The corrosion issue is a matter of alloy used and presence of anodes. The salt water is an electrolyte and there is a current path between all the "wetted" metals in the system.
