Air to water intercooling

Anyone here running this style of intercooling? Any pro's and cons for the 911? Also does anyone have pics or there system like where you'd mount your pre-rad etc?

Anyhelp here would be great. Thanks in advance!

-Marc.

I did some messing around with this about two years ago. I do not know if I still have the pics. That was two laptops ago. You can mount it over to the right and change the config of the air box. The intercooler radiator can be mounted in the left rear quarter like where you see some of the condensers. You have to watch the core you use because the of the pressure drops. Some of the units like the Vortex have a 4-5lb drop across the core.

: WATER

No, really this is an issue since it isn't naturally in this location (rear) and is inherently heavier than air positioned up high. I run a air/water on one of my Fords and have tossed the idea around for an option to run no tail. You could use a Ford Cobra or 944 elec pump and plumb the water to a multiple of locations for the radiator.... in place of A/C in driver quarter, to the front in a Oil cooler location, or under the decklid for a few. The IC isn't that large so lower and further foward the better. The water resovoir to handle a track day if needed will be limited. If no back seat or in rear floor well (which is a better use than for sub woofers) would be reasonable.

The general answer your always going to get is that the a/a IC is just more proven in our application and easier to make functional in a RR situation. Obviously Porsche used A/W IC's on later cars with great success. They of course went on to water cool the heads, but this may be pushing it for a DIY.
