Cooler EGTs!!!

I found this air/water intercooler on ebay, if you put it between the stock intercooler and the motor, i think it would work really well. if you put it between the intercooler and the motor with some waterlines and an aluminum holding tank(one gallon) and a 12 volt pump,

What do you think?:

I think you would have to be on the strip/track or big into every little performance thing for it to be worthwhile. I don't think you could justify it just daily driving. Of course that's just my opinion.

Sweet avatar. :Thumbup:

i think it would work for every day driving. they use them on imports for small spaces. I think if used after the main intercooler it would work well. you could use water with some water wetter .

Well then buy it and let use know but I think 1 gal of water would heat up fast and be to hot after a little while. I would try to get more capacity and run it thru a radiator with a electric fan

I don't doubt it would work. I just question that you would gain any benefit to justify it from daily driving other than the cool factor. I have no problems with temperatures daily driving myself. You are also going to have to find a way to cool even the Water Wetter through some sort of radiator type setup, engine coolant would be too warm to utilize.

What he said.

If you don't run a radiator, you will have to keep filling the water tank with ice, because it will get hot.

If you run a radiator, the coolest you will get will either be engine coolant temp 190*, or ambient air temp. Depending if you run a separate radiator and pump, or plumb engine coolant through it. Which, is basically pointless, either way.

If EGT's are that much of a problem, you need a bigger turbo. If you already have a large single, or twins, then you need to look at something like a water/meth fogger, or nitrous.

Depends on outside air temp and vehicle speed.

Usually around 80-110 degrees.

That will be something you will have to find out, every truck is different. Ambient air temp and speed play factors also.

I was browsing through your forum and saw this.

I have seen these before and thought they would be pretty useless but something just came to me, why not run your AC lines through it instead of water. That stuff gets way cold, just guessing at 30*F and would be able to use it any time the AC is on.
