    Intercooler or Non Intercooled.

    Which is better intercooled turbo or non intercooled turbo? There are kits out there that have both. From information i have read, is that you don't need an intercooler if you dont go above 14 lbs boost. Planning on installing an Aero 66 on a 09 D8. HM turbos makes a kit with water/air intercooling 240 HP, The other kit 220 no intercooler and lighter. Only planning on running 10-12 lbs boost.

    About halfway down page 6. Glengine will be one guy you can talk to, he knows lots. Hope this topic sheds some light on it for ya though, it was a good thread to learn from.

    Interesting to see that at 8000ft, the sled lost 30hp from sea level.... It is amazing what oxygen deficiency does to a motor.

    I think??? its 4% loss of total HP for every 1000 ft above sea level. Im sure if im wrong some one will correct me.

    i personally dont think you need one at 10-12 psi. unless you are making long wot pulls(30sec+at wot) that said if the intercooler is set up right there are benifits. i dont know alot about the water/air intercollers but water cooling is a great idea. you definitley want a electric fan behind a regular cooler. i have talked to numerous people and if you are playing in the trees or meadows were ther isnt alot of air movement across the cooler you end up heatsoaking the cooler and this actually is worse than not having one and this can lead to detonation and burndown. get as much info as you can talk to different builders before you decide.

    ps definitley get boosted intercooler or not :

    good luck

    If you want to put an aerocharger on do NOT put an intercooler on.. They dont work nearly aswell with one as without.. No matter what boost level you are running.. It's like an air filter definitely do NOT put one on an aerocharger turbo either as it can cause the turbo to over spool and do damage to the vanes inside the turbo..

    thats a good point. i didnt realize the 66's were having that issue. i knew the 53's couldnt have any restriction eg air filter. learn something new every day
