Yes Shawn though this might be a bit extreme for most. Anything that increases the capacity of the system will help increase effective cooling. This means using 3/4th's inch lines, a larger capacity radiator, and if you want to go batty, routing the intercooler hoses a lengthier way.seen96 said:I was just curious if a reserve tank in the trunk is worth the effort. If ice is added to make the coolant...cooler would that make the i/C more eff. and in turn make more power?

Ron Vogel said:I ended up using 2 fans, just the one wasn't enough to get temps down quick enough. Even with 2 fans it's too slow. I may ditch the Hayden fans for something OEM. They just don't push enough air unless I'm doing 40. I found a good source for the 3/4" lines. Enco supply carries the reinforced Goodyear hose, and it's pretty cheap. I believe it was about .70 a foot. To further enhance my system, I'll be replacing my coolant (in both the motor and IC) with the Evans NPG+ stuff. It is expensive, but if it'll add a few extra HP (like 10ish) it will be cheap HP. It goes for around $22.50 a gallon.
Oh....Rob, you have to try and use dry ice. It's only like $7.00 for 10lbs. Just make sure that your trunk is vented. It doesn't melt like ice, it turns into C02, will last a lot longer, and is BRRRR colder.
Forgot safety tip: Don't ever place dry ice in a sealed container, as it changes to gas, it will build up pressure in a sealed container. It'd blow the lid off a cooler with no vent.
