How much is the heat exchanger? It might not be worth it to me if I am already going to add a meth/water system.

Getting the IATs down raises the air density in the combustion chamber, this gives the potential to increase engine power output because more air and fuel can be squeezed into the same volume of space.


Now they say that cars that are not boosting greater than 7psi the increase in power is minimal as the air being discharged will not required to be cooled as much but as we have seen in the ESS VT2 SC system the air discharged gets hotter after a few runs so any help in cooling this effectively is a bonus. I guess this is why ESS now offers the larger HE today.
I was asking specifically for the H/e size, the workings i understand of course..
Its the heatsoak that kills power, not always just the size of the h/e, bigger isnt always better But i think that is what you meant essentially. The G power kit i believe is a air to liquid cooler correct?

Good to see ESS offers a bigger H/E now, as i have always heard that heatsoak is really bad on the ESS SC kit.

Sorry don't actually know the dimensions of the HE but just have pics of the old and new ones from ESS (well I have the larger one just waiting for install).


Bigger is always better so my GF says and yes the GPower is air to water.

Hey Tommy,

When are you adding meth system? I mentioned my heat soak issues from last summer so I'm considering doing the same before it gets hot!

I need to soon before the summer. However, I am limited in time these days on being able to work on my own car. I am also limited to competent shops in my area to do the work. I am researching the best place to install the nozzle. Some say at the supercharger discharge, some say just before the blower intake.
