Intercooler?

Post by Ladi3sman55 » Mon Jan 12, 2009 11:14 pm

Curious as to what everyone is running intercooler wise.
im debating between stock srt4 and the xs power intercooler
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/XS-Power ... otohosting
i heard something about the xs needing less piping b/c the inlet and outlet are on the same side.
opinions?
ill be running a 2.4 with srt internals and srt turbo. nothing too fancy just having trouble deciding on an intercooler

SRT, you have to make a little room for it, but you can find them from$40-90 on the .org

well i got my buddies opinion on it and suggests going bigger than srt4 and that the xs power one is a bad design since the inlet/outlet are on the same side it causes flow restrictions.
so my vote is going towards other.
im looking into pt ic's since idk how big they are or anything really..
i just want something with a 3 inch core prolly a 12x32 or something along those lines..

an SRT intercooler is pretty sufficient...Why did your friend suggest going bigger? Im just curious.

If you can weld, you can buy the exact size core and make your own. I made one for my buddies and it actually turned out quite well.

No offense but your buddy seems kinda retarted.

If your just running a srt'd 2.4 why would you need any thing bigger than the srt intercooler?

Ummm???


A few things

A: The stock SRT intercooler sucks
B: That design of the XS Power one is more efficient than the SRT
C: Bigger with intercoolers isnt always better, BUT in this case it would be.
D: If you are on a budget, get an SRT intercooler and force it to work, but that XS setup is WAY better for piping even.

Just disregard what I said then before.
