Default Frozen boost type 12 intercooler

I planned on getting a Chiseled but came across a Frozen Boost type 12 for price I couldn't say no to. Is it worth opening up the 3/4" water inlets and giving the type 12 a shot or sell it and go with chiseled?

motor is just budget L33 with good pistons, LJMS cam, studded, billet BW 480 and BS3 ECM.

I use a little type 17 with giant 1.25 id hoses and fittings and a Chiseled 7-gallon tank. Works great for me. I think for the price the 12 is supposed to be really good.

Does going bigger on the water ports and fittings on these really gain that much? First I've heard of it.

from what I learned a higher end cooler like chiseled has a more efficient core like a bell or a garret and can use a 1" id line on the 1k or 2k hp models. On the cheaper coolers like the type 12 the cores are not as efficient coupled with fact they only have fittings for 3/4" id lines. Opening up fittings for 1 1/4" id lines help the cooler be more efficient.

read some people see a 20-50 drop in IAT with bigger lines

I ran [email protected] with the type 12. I didnt drill the holes out but I did weld a 1" nipple fitting the threads. 1" id clear home depot hose.
5 gallon ice tank with rule 2,000.
It would start at 70 degrees on the line and rise to 130 iat at the end of the 1/4. Typically used half ice and water.

That's a great idea...thanks. That bung that's 3/4 npt that frozen boost put on is pretty think I may to find an 1 1/8 or 1/4 nipple that will fit or just do same as you.

BTW I asked in a PM but didn't here back. You guys tune BS3 at your shop in *******?
