Default Intercooler tested

Update:

For those that may occassionally want an update. I tested the intercooler installation this weekend.

I was very impressed with how effective it was. even though it was a $90 ebay intercooler, I found it was very well made.

I did a run up to 5200 rpm only about 38-40 " MAP. The ambient temp was about 80 f and max temp temp as about 82*-84* IAT. Test before the intercooler I would see my IAT head over 150*.....

I then activated my #2 meth injector and it dropped down to 68*-69* . This is a very small injector and if I wanted it to drop further I would double it to a #4. some go as hight as #10. These numbers generally equate to gallons per hour and you can get them from McMaster Carr for only a few bucks a piece. They come with built in fine mesh screen. Excellent in expensive nozzles....

So for me, if you are running a turbo, you really do benefit with an intercooler - IF - you have room and can afford the extra weight.

If you don't have room for an intercooler I would definitely use meth injection.

Here is a link of a short video of the engine running on a test stand up to 3000rpm.

There is a lot to share on Wide Band AFR systems but that will be on another post later.

I would appreciate if at least one person can tell me the video link above worked for you.

Feel free to ask questions.
