most FI on here is air to air with the stillen being the only water to air that I can think of.

Even with water to air for your FI...arent you still limited by ambient air to cool the water in a radiator. Doesnt make much sense. Pump can fail, hoses can leak and heat soak. Not to mention how much space it takes up.

I would just stick to air to air and not air to water to water to air.

I agree cux about sticking with air to air. Just came across water to air and have read a lot about them but mostly domestics. Seems most love the set up. Idk what it does for coolant. Seems like huge advantages with drag racing but I don't drag my car anymore.

make sure your blower spins the right direction. I believe the Z spins opposite of most other applications.

Not to mention youre carrying 8lb (roughly) per gallon of extra coolant and pump.

only 5 year revival ...

anyone run an air to air intercooler and then an inline water to air (not the stillen style). Tank in the bank with ice/water or dry ice/water for track events?

Meaning - running an air to air to bring temps as close to ambient as possible and then a inline water to air to drop temps further?

As mentioned above track events only.

Roughly a $100-$150 investment
