I believe Saleen used something like the Laminova design in their supercharged vehicles a few years ago. It is surprising that if it is that much better, that the auto manufacturer's would not incorporate this design, yet they stay with the bar and plate style of I/C core. Reliability? Because the car has a warranty? Cheaper to implement in cost per unit? IDK. I have so much tied up in this custom set up, I am committed to getting my money out of it at this point. Maybe in a few years, or if I upgrade to the larger 4.2L LQ blower for even more boost. You would be surprised at much R&D (read $$$) is involved in making a custom one off set up. Some people have less in an entire engine than what the inlet/outlet manifolds cost to develop.That is really cool. Have you looked into the Laminova branded laminar flow air-water heat exchangers? Apparently they outflow and outperform traditional bar and plate style construction, but don't seem to be easily found these days. Back in the mid 2000s I recall there were a few companies that could build you an intercooler of whatever dimensions you wanted out of them. I think they were used for Subaru WRX intercooling at one point. I've always been keen on doing something like that, but didn't have access to fabrication facilities until more recently. I'm not racing or anything, just driving on the street, but I like the design of the upper plate that incorporates both the discharge of the supercharger and the inlet to the intercooler. I could probably waterjet something out of 6061 to match that and TIG an enclosure together, but we'll see if I ever attempt it!
