I know Eddie personally- if they said 18psi, trust me, it is 18 psi.
He put down that 1220 pass on the dyno on not much more than 18 psi- I was there to see it.

Thanks a lot Juan, really interested to hear intake temps water to air vs air to air. Was he runing a large radiator for it somewhere? Was he trying to reduce drag going wingless?

BTW: Your posts are always super cool!!

Is a never ending quest trying to find the correct combination, what we have noticed is that the motor likes water/air BUT at a certain point at x temp the engine don't want to run good, so now we are trying to find the x factor where the temp will be cold and the engine will run at its best, the wind was an experiment which I opposed too the car has gone 162 MPH in the 1/4 mile with the TT wind so I don't see the need to change the wind but then again I'm just a helper here never mind that it looks gay

Juan, I have heard from a few drag racers running liquid intercoolers that they also suffer a lack of power when the air is "too cold". Nobody is sure why, do you think it's related to the E85? Cold climate users of e85 have cold start issues..

We think it's related to the E85 fuel

Ethanol has a higher temperature of vaporization than toluene based petro fuels.
At colder temps the EtOH will condense, sort of like what you see in diesel engines. The other side of it is I would think EtOH based fuels would be less prone to vapor lock.

just run water thru a heat exchanger and let it be ambient. Still transfers heat better than air
