intercooler???

  1. does this engine have an intercooler? and if so where?
     
  2. Re: intercooler???

    Yep. It has two of them. See attached picture (the intercoolers are circled in red).
     
  3. Re:

    Too bad it doesn't have a superintercooler. If you don't belive me look at the Ford lightning Forum.
     
  4. Re: Re:

    Thats just called supercooler. Its not really neccassary on a car like this....
     
  5. Re: intercooler???

    are you sure those arent just the intake manifolds? how could those be the intercoolers? and im assuming since it has 4 turbos they are all small and spool up pretty quickly emliminating turbo lag...
     
  6. Re: intercooler???

    Those are water-to-air intercoolers. The two aluminum cylindrical objects between them are the intake manifolds.

    Yes, the 4 turbochargers are small and thus have less inertia meaning less lag. Also, keeping the intake and exhaust tracts as short as possible will help reduce lag. I imagine the lag on this engine is pretty much zero.

    I wanted to say somthing like that but I was'nt too sure if it was right so I waited for someone else to reply.

    they may look like the inlet plenum's, but they are intercoolers, water-to-air intercoolers are much more effective and also saves weight and space.
     
  9. Re: intercooler???

    could you post that pic minus the red circles?
     
  10. Re: intercooler???

    Water-to-air intercoolers save space, but not weight. You usually end up with a little more weight because of the water, radiator(s), pump(s), and water hoses. I've heard that some water-to-air intercoolers use engine coolant straight of the engine's water pump instead of having their own separate system, so in that case, a water-to-air intercooler would save weight versus an air-to-air. You are definitely correct on the other points. The only problem I have with water-to-air intercoolers is what happens if you get a leak? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Yep.
     
  12. Re: intercooler???

    Well, it's a very faster exotic luxury car, so it probably wont because it's so well made.
