I always wanted to know...

So, as stated, I always kinda wanted to know.... I see a bunch of these famous racers running high dollar engines, with high dollar turbo systems on their cars without any sort of air to air or air to water intercoolers. As hard as I looked, all I could see was the turbo outlet plumbing directly into the intake.

Is there some sort of injection system I’m not seeing? Or is the inlet air temp not as important? The weight reduction not worth the benefits?

E85, meth injections, even alcohol are always options for cooler charge temps without coolers. Or they simply don't worry since the they don't run very long.


Dart 348ci, Ed Curtis cam/valvetrain, Precision 76mm, Holley Dominator EFI, CNP ignition, tons of Holler EFI small parts, 4"dp, 4R70W w/T-brake, new suspension coming soon.

Little 750rwhp at 6,000rpms and only 10lbs of boost before we just got tired of playing with clutches. New 4R70W and we are turning it up. Expecting 1,000rwhp.

I guess I never thought of the fuel they’d burn, which makes sense. I was just wondering how they did it and if it was/is worth the weight savings!

The cars usually shut down once they hit the 1/4 mile Mark and then they cool down between runs.

A2A intercoolers work best when air is passing through them. Not much air movement in the staging lanes, so it's more likely to become heat soaked. Less piping and no cooler, or an A2W intercooler would be ideal. Not saying A2A intercoolers don't work well, just in competitive racing there are more ideal options.

For everything that is worthwhile, there is a counterfeit.

Switching over to M1 here no intercooler or engine coolant. Less weight u need bigger injectors and a fuel system to support it. Also had to change fuel injection to support it. Hate the way it smells.

So air to water intercooler water tank for that and engine coolant the pump and plumbing and lines plus the water and ice. U will save a,lot of wright. Plus getting ice.

Not sure why no one uses a vacum pump?

If I switched anything, it would be to Meth injection in the intake, not m1 as fuel simply because of the cost to upgrade everything....again!

Oh yeah big time expensive. The M1 is cheaper then Q16. U can run M1 as meth. Look it up. Going to do it for my street car.

Ran into someone that said he does not mix meth with water just used meth.
