Twin Intercoolers for the Boys Running Twinz

Just a thought today, but has anyone fabbed up two intercoolers when running twins. Meaning one to cool the charge air out of the first charger and into the second charge. And the second to cool the charge air out of the second turbo into the motor.

Now obviously this would be some serious fab and plumbing work, and who knows if there is space for it.

This has been done on large industrial diesels before and is common.

But with all the recent twin set ups going in I'm wondering if anyone has even considered it. Not sure if anyone has considered it, but I would think it would be beneficial.

Re: Twin Intercoolers for the Boys Running Twinz

I would like a second IC, but space is limited.......

Maybe water/air? Or just use water injection.

Yeah I know but I guess my thought was to get around having to use water injection, which I think the second IC may do.

Re: Twin Intercoolers for the Boys Running Twinz

What works best as far as space and cost in concerned, is to run both stages of turbos through one intercooler. Like Joey said, if thats not enough, usually water injection after the intercooler will help keep the temps in check, while also doing a nice cleaning of the engine. Im thinking about doing water just to clean the engine up a little inside.

Re: Twin Intercoolers for the Boys Running Twinz

I actually set mine up to do precisely what this thread says. Run the first stage through the Air:Air at the front and then run over to a Water:Air where the airbox used to be. But I ran out of steam, and gave in to the water injection for the second stage for now.

I am still setup to run from the second stage over to a water:air core and back to the intake.

And it is a big space issue, and it is a PITA.

Funny you mention that, I was jokingly going to mention that in my first post but I knew someone would bring it up eventually.

Interesting, my only thought of where another air/air cooler could go is stacked in front of the original some how. I would think a smaller one would possibly fit and would be sufficent to cool the first stage, and then run the second stage to the bigger IC. And again, plumbing would still be a nightmare.
