LOAD OF HOT AIR

Hot air isn’t a good thing if you’re an engine with a turbo or supercharger. Boost makes horsepower, but it also creates a lot of heat. The more boost, the higher engine temperatures can get. The next thing you know, you’ve got detonation issues and big problems.

A Snow Performance Stage 2.5 Boost Cooler solves that problem by injecting a water/methanol mix into the engine’s air intake. The system’s VC-50 progressive controller uses a MAP sensor to inject the mix in proportion to manifold boost pressure – the higher the pressure, the more water/methanol mix is added.

This dramatically lowers engine temperatures More >
