    Hey Kirk, I am thing about getting a reservoir for the drags how much longer does it take to cool down the larger volume initially and between runs?
    I have a VE, LS7 interchiller, LSA pump, deleted original intercooler heat exchanger and a Heartbeat supercharger.
    Cabin will be off during runs.
    I am going down to Quit Motorplex in three weeks without the reservoir and will monitor IAT`s before and after. I am not sure how much the IAT`s will rise after the Burnout. Hence the reservoir.
    what rpm is best to cool down the coolant prior to each run?
    I there anything else I could need? I did see reference to Competition solenoid somewhere.
    PM me if you want with a cost for the reservoir kit. including freight to Cameron`s shop post code 6021.
    Thanks..

    The intercooler fluid will do about 3 laps of the entire system every 10sec without a reservoir.
    With a reservoir itís 33sec so the IAT2 is colder when at WOT and cool down time is faster since after the run within 15-20sec a rush of cold fluid goes through and drops temps back down again.

    Minimum IAT2 is achieved in 8-12min at idle
    Touch faster with RPM around 1200rpm

    Please call or email through the order I will not likely remember come Monday

    Is there any benefits insulating the stock intercooler lines mate? What is the best materials to do so?

    I was thinking of getting some foam tube insulation off the internet and wrapping the lines with it.

    When I order your 12ltr reservoir, I will likely insulate the tank as well.

    Cheers.

    You can buy foam insulation from clark rubber and bunnings that will work.

    The idea is to keep cold in and heat out.

    We are very soon going to be releasing AN fittings for the intercooler brick so you can run braided hose on the car, which makes it much better looking, higher flow rate and protects the fluid from engine heat.

    We had a Merc customer who had good results on his C63's with rubber hose but wanted it colder, he swapped all of his hoses for braided hose and it dropped the temps even further and then the intercooler metal lines iced up for him straight away, which he said never happened before, so it certainly helps to protect the lines from losing energy and gaining heat.

    How much are they?
    Is there any drilling or cutting required to install?

    You need to drill a small hole for the inlet hose to go into the cavity that we mount it in.

    Have a look in the video you can see it all

    Thanks mate, really look forward to seeing the braided offerings! I am keen to get this done for my next track day.

    Does the -12 and -16 lines fit straight onto the intercool brick?

    We will be welding AN fittings to the inlet port, the internal diameter is almost double the factory ports so you will flow more
