Default Yeah i did it with a frozen boost ic!

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a testimonial with respect to a frozen boost front mount intercooler set-up I tried on my 275 drag radial car for the 2010 racing season. I thought you might want to hear some feedback that could possibly may make or break a racer on a budget and has any question on if he can run fast or not.

My plan was to budget what I could on my car and see what performance I could achieve with this intercooler. My combo is a 1990 Ford Mustang coupe with stock suspension. I run on a small 275 tire on 1/8 mile track. My engine is an LS based motor, 370cube, running factory 03 truck manifold for turbo headers, factory 317 truck heads with some slight port work, and I am using a factory 6.0 LS based crankshaft with a 88mm Garrett turbo. I am using front mount 3 in and out intercooler and have achieved my personal best of 5.62 at 130.62 mph with a 1.33 60ft at 3,250 pounds. I finished the car in early April 2010 and have tested and raced several events to get the car dialed in this year. I have won two 275 races and qualified in the top 3 and made it to finals on the other races. I have one more race this weekend to finish out the season with this combo. I believe I have pushed the intercooler to its potential and will have to step-up to a water to air intercooler and 4 inch in-and-out pipes for next year to produce more of what I think car is capable of. I see a lot of posts here and there concerning the need of a high dollar intercooler to do the job. I just wanted to pass this information on to let everyone know that I have no complaints about this product and/or the horsepower it is handling and highly recommend it. Thanks hope this helps.

I'm not a pusher of big dollar IC's but this post is lite on data. I'm talking pre and post IAT data, pre and post pressure data at least. 1/8 mile is only half track also and if he has IAT's in the 200's for instance at the end of a pass, is it really working?

i know on theyre a2w's they rate the pressure drop at .01 psi (much different than a a2a, i know)

i think with a a2a thats 4" thick, it should perform well

It dead heat I have seen temps at high of 132 so far and cooler weather as low as 105 to 115 on top end. And as post states I run 1/8 mile in my area, so do not have any data to argue with on 1/4 mile runs. Not here to argue who has better ic out there. Just wanted to let some people know who are on a budget that this ic can be ran and have great results with great Hp results!

And as far as pre ic temps your average guy is not logging those temps and or cares what they are if they have already purchased there if anyway. But there again not disagreeing there is not a better front mount out there for sure. but there again most are not running 130 in the 1/8 mile either so fo your average street car there should not be an question this ic will work great!

Couldn't agree more. No need to drop big coin on something that you don't need.

I have ran both the big and small ebay intercoolers in my drag fiero. The large one is designed incorrectly (the end tanks are not divided, and it basically prevents any water flow through the core). I currently have this large one in my drag car, and it was modified to flow from one end tank to the other (I blocked one of the stock holes, and tapped a new one on the other side).

Click the image to open in full size.

I see 8-10 degrees C above ambient at the end of a 1/4 run using a bosch pump and no ice in the water box. I am making about 750hp on a PT6776, and do about 140mph on the big side of the 1/4 mile on low boost.

that's the same 1 we run on the twin s475 dragboat, the 1st thing i checked whent hey came in was to make sure the water tank seperation plate was pressed into the core so flow had to go thru the core. we're selling the dragboat tmrw tho so we can build a high power lsx 300lb 1000hp dealio , basically copy'n my ls turbo dragboat set-up. cant wait to order some parts
