Default Twin intercooler setup?

Obviously i'm really hurting for space. I'm thinking of moving the radiator up all the way forward, then doing a twin intercooler setup on each side.

Hard to explain but you can just look at the picture and see what I mean. I have a ton of room on the left/right side behind the bumper.


Is there a max flow per amount of air that makes this setup impossible? I know it's done sometimes with twins, but those IC's are in parrallel. The IC's would be in series with eachother. turbo -> right IC -> left IC -> TB

Look at Dark One's build n v8rx7forum. There's plenty of space to make it work. I'm doing the same thing but don't have pics.

procharger uses dual intercoolers but i'm not sure how they route them.

^ Thanks, i'll have to space it all out and see where it gets me. I just have so much room where the tranny/ps coolers were I felt like I shouldt take advantage of it.

IC's in series is not a good way to go. The restriction is doubled and the second IC only yields a very small temp drop. IC's work best when the temp differential is high.

A parallel setup, where you split the turbo outlet (with a Y-pipe) and send half to each IC, then join them back together is the way to go. You get one half the restriction and both IC's do their temp drop duty.

Should be fun project but changing some of the plugs won't be fun!

Yeah, makes sense thats what I thought. I did see someone with a dual intercooler procharger setup. It just spits coming out of the turbo, I may try that, or cut the entire front support off and build my own.

Time will tell, I have all winter, just gathering parts right now.
