Really? 100+ HP gain? That's great..i also got 1HP per degree F dropped.
if you want to gain real HP go with a A/W intercooler.the meth kit is limited.you may gain 40HP thru temp drop and timing added that the injection will allow.Really? 100+ HP gain? That's great.
Last month on a 100 degree day I saw 216 degree IATs before the injectors. I'm adding a meth kit, just hoping to lower the IATs.
If I was to gain a little power along the way, that would be a plus :smt038.
i think it was me posting that, i even saw 120 with the 871 14lbs and e85. now with the screw compressor i get below 100. but thats when i floor it on the street, it will be interesting try this thing on the strip. i think it will show the same temps or even lower because the temp drops more and more as long im at wot." on the other hand anyone with a roots blower would sell a picture of there sister to have a charge temp of only 240 degrees:wink:
my temps were 270 at 9% OD above the I/C and 130 below with tap water.[70*F]
someone had posted there temps as 130 with alky14lbs,roots 8-71.i cant recall who it was.sorry.naturaly a procharger or turbo would have different results.i also got 1HP per degree F dropped.
thanks! i understand better.sorry for getting off track.Blownzoom440,
On Cary's setup the charge air temp is prior to the addition of fuel and subsequent cooling it provides, also the F-3 flow is comparable to a 14/71 50 over. I assume your setup is a conventional roots deal with the carb or half the injectors on top of the blower.
I should have been a little more clear and said anyone with a roots putting out that kinda boost would have been happy to see those charge air temps prior to any cooling. On a roots when you are running 50 over by the end of the run at 8-10 grand charge air temps are in that range despite pooring a pint of alky through the blower hat nozzles every second or so
