Has anyone thought about doing an air to water intercooler with an ice chest? I know the new BMW v8 twin turbskies have air to "water" intercooler boxes
Thanks I'm looking more at a custom setup rather then retrofitting a factory one, I want to do a ice box in the trunk, obviously it'll only have ice when doing actual pulls and just water while street driving. Also retrofit a ambient air cooler to the frontI've seen a photo of one N54 that had it done but packaging constraints/inefficiency outside of single pulls have been the main reason the pursuit had faded out. If you're up for the challenge I think I good place to start would be the B58 IM.
Fill the tank with methanol and delete the IC completely.
Honestly it's not that complicated of a setup, plus doing meth injection wouldn't be as a big of a benefit as a a2w would be, plus I've ran meth injection before and didn't get great results from it, it's the water that cools the air in meth injection. The car is mostly a weekend/drag car at this point and will further turn into a drag car only I'm just looking at options now instead of figuring it out at the last minuteHonestly given the work and complication etc. You might as well just run meth and have better cooling and higher octane.
Is an a2w cool, sure. But is the complication worth it?
Running out won't kill the engine, it's the injectors failing open that will blow it up hahaAnd then wait for the day you accidentally run out. Engine, blown.
There's no benefit while driving yes but when it is track day it's perfect, there's a reason why majority of cars in drag week have this setup works while driving and no down fall besides a little more weightOh god, here we go again. Sure if its a full blown race car running an ice tank like Andy is building here. Then its worth it. Streetcar, unless you have no possible way to mount a FMIC you are adding weight, and complexity to the system for no real benefit in cooler IAT's.
For such a good looking car, that engine bay looks like a DEI catalog threw up in it.I follow this guy on instagram. Hope this helps. He live in Russia.
lol yuuup. Although, it is a badass car regardless.For such a good looking car, that engine bay looks like a DEI catalog threw up in it.
