    Default anyone build an intercooler for top of carburetor

    building a twin turbo bbc with the race aero exhaust manifolds and it sure would be nice to have an intercooler to go right on top of the b low thru carburetor.

    why not just use a water/alcohal injection set up. I made one, as well as an using an intercooler. I have a spray bar w/ 2 .025 holes, one over each carb. It is a boost activated resorvoir from manifold pressure w/ a check valve. No boost, no pressure. I am in it about, $200 in material and polishing. about 75% as good, 5-10% of the cost. Steve

    banks made what you're looking for, but i'm not sure they did it in the bigger horsepower ranges. why not just by a nice ev bonnet and a 2000hp air to water intercooler offa ebay for 159 bucks intake air temp would be crazy low letting you dump a buttload of boost on pump gas. be cheaper than finding a banks set-up like you're wanting. ev hat will cost ya 150, intercooler from ebay another 159.00, so less than 350 and it'd make BIG hp, with less i.c. pressure drop. we're doin a twin 496 with twin 2000hp i.c.'s then y-ing into the bonnet.

    Window washer fluid and a little pump.

    like the windshield washer fluid, thats what the water alcohal does. A check valve off the intake manifold, into a resorvoir, thru a spraybar over the carbs. no pumps, no electricity, no switches, etc.. when boost, and porportionally you get water alcohal. when vacum, nothing. have dynoed w/50 h.p gains, can run lots of boost on pump gas,etc.. I'll try to get some pics.

    I ran the last one on blown 491 bbc 6-71. Currently on 572 w/10-71 and an intercooler. I am mostly using this one as means to meter more fuelv in.

    carb bonnet for blow thru systems. the ev has a lil velocity stack built into the bonnet that corrects airflow as it hits the carb. motors making over 1000hp usually don't need anything more than a basic hat, but smaller hp motors need it to correct a/f ratio to the cylinders, spread the air mixutre better.

    Would nitrus plates work to spray alcohol?

    You can make a little spray bars that go in the "vacuum" ports on the top blower plate. The lines running to them would then be for "boost reference"

    I already bought 2 two inch spacer plates to go on top of my present carb mount plate so I can get the clearance for 50 cc pumps, so I would like to run a spray tube in the center of those like a nitrus plate. What do you think ? I've already decieded I'm staying with the inline single feed vacuum secondary carbs, they work great for long distance cruisability and get great fuel economy. I took 750 centers and put 650 bowls and transfer tubes on them with no metering blocks in the secondary's so I could run them inline. Total low budget set up with used junk. They work amazingly well ! Just trying to tweek them a little on the low budget backyard motif '...........
