question about intercooler?
I've seen some cars that have an oval tube that is set infront of the intercooler, i heard that it was some kind of extra cooler system. Can someone give me the scoop on this, a more detailed explanation of whats it for, how does it work and where can i buy one?? Also is it a good mod, does it really work well, and are they universal or what, and does anyone have pics, thanks guys???

yea you hook it up to nitrous or co2 and you can purge it to the intercooler. it cools it down for a boost. not sure how effective it is but i search on it more.

yeah thats right, its actually very effective. ive read that it can sometimes cool the air Intake charge by as much as 30-50 degrees grin

so its a different way to induce n2o or is it just to get the air going through the intercooler even colder. so how would you activate it, or is it always on, and how would that work. also, would i be able to buy a system like that and install it on the sf Turbo kit??

its a little switch/button you press and it sprays for like 2-3 seconds, what it does is lowers the temp of air going through the intercooler and the intercooler itself(it can get hot being metal and all) . its good to use it like when your stuck in stop and go traffic when your creating lots of heat and not getting much air movement over the intercooler or before a race. im sure if you get a Turbo you could rig it up somehow thumbsup
