(For track use), intercooler temperatures are listed by two local builders as job #1 for engine longevity and sustained on track performance. His MOTEC data form 12 930 EFI installs bears this out - very interesting data to see. ....
So why did your temps go up? I thought you just did an engine rebuild, not change any of your intake chain or aero?

Water spray would seem to be very applicable to your app since you run defined lengths of time, the weight goes down as the finish approaches, and any extra humidity to the engine compartment/cooling air would increase the cooling (increased specific heat of air) efficiency to the engine?
