    Default Blower Intercooler pickup??

    What are you guys doing to feed your intercoolers(chillers)? I heard that you have to run a pickup. Can you run it off the pump?
    I was thinking about running a seastrainer to keep her clean for added insurance.

    From the pump I run the water to a log. This is a magnafuel log with a -10 in and 4 -10 outlets. One outlet is to the intercooler, one is to the engine, one is to a spring loaded adjustable bypass from HTP that dumps excess pressure out the back. The last outlet is used to supply water to the collectors on my thru transome exhaust. I have it split with small restrictions inserted. Out of the intercooler I run 2 -8 line to dumps on the drivers side. I run about 20 psi on the superchillar.

    Psycho squid had a pretty trick set up on his using a v-drive pick up on the ride plate so at idle the fuel would not puddle in the cooler dur to being over chilled and net drawn in fast enough. This also kept the pressure down.

    How much is too much pressure for an intercooler?

    I may do this BUT I dont want any drag. I saw the pickups @ Teague yesterday and they are some big mofo's

    Cy I thought the v-drive plate pickups, could reach pressures of over a 100 psi?

    Drill tap the bowl carefully 1/2 pipe. The pitot type pick ups are too much drag. Run a regulator to keep psi down.

    A simple reliable way is to run a HTP water bypass kit. This keeps the water pressure below 15 lbs to the engine. Run the bypassed water from the bypass valve in a # 10 hose to a tee right before the intercooler. Tee it into two # 8 hoses into the intercooler. At the back of the intercooler run two # 10 hoses to a couple of overboard outlets. This system keeps the engine pressure correct, supplies water to the intercloor only when under power, so as to prevent fuel puddling, and with the 2 # 8's in to the intercooler and 2 # 10's out, there is never an overpressure situation on the intercloor. We've plumbed dozens of them that way and had great success with it.

    -12 v-drive pick-up thru-hull. 5 degree cut with .050 below bottom. This will give you about 15 psi at 100mph depending on location and boat attitude. -10 exit were you can see it. This is very crude but its where I start. Have even ended up flush before. Also flush with a small concave ramp but a little turbulent=preasure fluctuation of maybe 5lbs. You will need a preasure gauge,22psi max with Super Chiller. Do not perminently mount the pick up untill you get the right preasure. A strainer is a good idea.

    Duane, I have your bypass kit here in the garage. My only issue with that is, its not very attractive. Do you have something with a lil more "Bilng" on it? That brass stands out.
