We are doing some more intercooler testing on Saturday.
We have 2 identical 240bhp Exiges at a trackday at Bedford on Saturday.
One is fitted with the first generation Pro Alloy intercooler and has also had the side scoop air hose feed mods done. We have done the side scoop mods in a way so we can easily fit them and take them off to back to back test how much difference the side scoops make.
We also have a standard intercooler and a Forge intercooler that we will swap and take test readings from both on the second car.
I would really love to borrow an MMG intercooler as that would make the test pretty all encompassing with what is out there at the moment.
I have to stress that JSR do not stock or sell any brand of intercooler (and also have no current plans to do so) so we are doing this for nothing more than to know the answers.
I dont know anyone at MMG, and felt uneasy about calling and asking to borrow one as if someone did it to me I would think there was some kind of ulterior motive going on. So if anyone has one I could borrow or knows the folks at MMG enough to see if they would like to lend us one then please let me know.
I know its a bit short notice, but I only booked the track day and we only had the idea to do some testing this afternoon.
We will test all the intercoolers we have over a set number of laps with the same driver and we will then test the proalloy shod car with and without the side scoop air hoses and will report back on our findings.
haha. We thought about it, but we dont have all of the stuff to fit one before saturday. If I could get a charge cooler shod car we could test that and then swap out the charge cooler for an intercooler, but i dont have a charge cooled car at my disposal
I will ask Liam at MMG in the morning , I’m sure they won’t have a Marston core stage two as they are made to order and takes months to get the core but they may have a Bently core stage one on the shelf .
Not sure what I’m doing on Saturday but if I’m not doing anything I could bring my stage two to use .
Don’t know where you are based, but would want the cooler only, and preferably clean. Can do that quickly at the workshop if you can get it to us?? If not, let us know and we can bring all the stuff to sort on saturday.
I could try and send my stage two but I have a 3 way carbon shroud bonded to the intercooler , I could try a get it off and fit the standard one that Liams got but it’s a lot of messing about + cost of sending + it’s over ï¿½2k worth , will have a think .
