ice in the ice box

after driving the car this morning I found temps to be 7-10 over ambient on first driving. I let the car sit 5 hours and started it up and act was 96deg its 57deg out, I drained half the tank and added ice let it circulate and added more and the act dropped to 39deg. Looks like the ice box will work well at the track.

That's the whole purpose of a tank, didn't you get the same with your cobra tank with ice?

I wouldn't say that's true at all... I packed a stock 03/04 mini res at the track and gained 0.3 ET on my Eaton swapped 99 back in the day

Make some ice spheres like a high-end bartender at a whiskey bar and drop them in the tank.

There's a good thread here on the front page with some good photos and details.

Hulk is right; intercooler out --> Heat Exchanger --> trunk tank --> IC pump --> IC in.

The hardest part of routing is getting through the suspension bits.

mine goes tank bottom to inlet of pump, then it goes out of pump to top of heat exchanger, then bottom of heat exchanger to supercharger ic inlet, then outlet of ic, to return on tank. I like the way my buddy set his up same as factory last night but split. Not sure if mine is correct flow path or not.

I would imagine you would want fluid routed to the IC before the HE coming from the trunk tank, especially if you ice down the tank at the track etc.

If your trunk tank is colder than your heat exchanger (like when iced), you're actually adding heat to the system with your routing. It should really be heat exchanger out -> tank -> IC -> heat exchanger in... this way the heat exchanger pulls heat out of the liquid coming out of the IC then the temperature is stabilized in the tank before going back in the IC.

that's what I was thinking the way we set it up I think its heating the water up and not using the heat exchanger. that should aply without ice as well.
