Is there going to be a intercooler for JRSC. just wondering.
Has anyone ELSE noticed how virtually every other supercharger kit out there is now incorporating water/air intercooler cores into their manifold design. Even the F'in OEM's are getting into the act. Do a little searching and you will find all sorts of cleaver designs out there. There is even a company (LHT as someone mentioned above) that MODIFIES the stock B Series JRSC manifold to incorporate a cooler. Everyone is doing it.RiceRocket112 said:Is there going to be a intercooler for JRSC. just wondering.
I don't have any hard data on the new RSX charger and it does use the newer Eaton design which is said to be more efficient but I can say from experience that the JRSC at 8 PSI on my previous B18C civic would hit intake temps as high as 250 degrees last august at VIR. This was measured using an Autometer intake temp gauge with the thermocouple placed inside the manifold at the outlet of the supercharger.wdsonny said:You don't really need an intercooler. With IAT at 75 degrees F the CDT is only about 108 degrees F. It is not that hot. Don't get mad at something you will have or never have control of. Just pointless to bitch and complain about a million dollar company not bending over backwards. They have done some good work so far so just relax. I am one of the impatient ones waiting for the next upgrade so I can hit that 300WHP mark.
Thats in line with the temps I saw on my civic. When it would get that hot the J&S Safeguard I had would begin to pull a lot of timing and it really killed the power. Thats why I ended up installing the water injection. It really did help but you have to keep a watchfull eye on the water level. It would always seem to run out at the worst possible time.wdsonny said:I just changed the formula using Kelvin instead of F. 75F converts to 297K. Now plug in the numbers before. Now I am getting like 247F. So maybe the CDT is much higher than I thought.
