What is really trick is that with cars w/ AC, they work really well to with refrigerated coolant. Something I looked at but decided not to mess with.

Here’s some stuff from a company that uses the cores – their stuff looks like ass, but you get the gist:
Laminar Flow Intercooler Theory
Laminova Intercooler Tech
Laminar Flow Intercooler

This guy’s Photobucket is the mother-lode for reverse engineering designs from photos.

These guys make a very trick IC which uses similar principles to my design:
NSX > ENPP > ScienceofSpeed Laminova Intercooler for ScienceofSpeed/CT Engineering Superchargers

From the Laminova site:

This is where it all started for me:
2F-ETI Home brew air to water Laminova intercooler

More great home brew:
1hdt laminova intercooler
Supercharged with Laminova A2W Intercooler - LotusTalk - The Lotus Cars Community
Water to air intercooler - Miller Welding Discussion Forums
So Kenik, are these Laminova circular intercooler units basically 'stackable'? What is the equivalency of say one of these units to a conventional A/A IC? How did you determine how many you needed for your application (which i assume is that small displacement turbo you are currently building?)

This guy looks like he 'stacked' four in a square formation... would two suffice?

Must admit, pretty neat technology in a compact package.
