Dave Eastwood (Gadgetman) - Club Chairman posted a topic in Tech TalkI've split this of of my (re)build thread, as it's quite a specialised diversion from the norm. It's also an area, that despite having had a number of turbo'd cars over the years, I've never really done anything other than basic chip tuning, with, before. A quick summary; as expected really, the stock intercooler setup in the S2000S is poor at best. And while it holds the "system" back, it kind of doesn't hold it back enough for, it seems, anyone to have tried to do much with it. Certainly, I've seen nothing on here, really... Now, I'm not looking at making a system for the drag strip here, just something that works well enough to justify the weight of carrying it round! (And won't shorten the life of the components around it, in particular the Rotrex compressor and the engine! Big power gains aren't the target, just reduced temperatures, where and if possible. With the stock IC, it's position is a real issue; airflow through it is fairly poor, it appears, and it's prone to heat soak from the cooling system beneath. I started this topic in the other thread, with a view to trying to improve as much as possible, the basic set up, as one of the things I was told from day one of the planned SC upgrade, was that the Sport Turbo/Sport 250 IC/Radiator sandwich didn't work on the S2000S. However, an opportunity to actually test this setup, without having to buy a new Radtec cooler/radiator package came up.. So, courtesy of @Adge Cutler- Dorset AO, this arrived this afternoon: There's quite a pipe dia. mismatch on the IC, so will need to sort out some adapting pipe/hose work, over the next few weeks. Be very interested to see the differences. For ref, the in/out pipes on the Sport 250 IC are roughly 50mm diameter, while a very rough quick measure of what I could get to on the Honda, suggests a 65mm inlet from the Rotrex, with a roughly 70mm outlet to the throttle body.
