I have a scanner I just got that you can use while you drive and it has an air intake temp reading. I can get it to 250 degree's in a few seconds when I pin it. The intercooler is looking better and better, save the cash.

I have a thermastatic relay for a water to air system, comes on at 180 deg F and off at 150 deg F. I was starting to think 180 deg was too high. but if your making 250! in a few seconds, I would think it would trip the switch.

Watching IAT's with a Tech II is what put me over the edge to buy an intercooler 2 years ago. I saw them skyrocket in a hurry while mashing the throttle with no trailer.


Everything you read about an intercooler keeping them to +30* ambient is very true. I couldn't be happier with it.


Or Maybe I Could...


I've now added WMI on top of the Intercooler. While doing some testing last week I was able to keep IAT's AT AMBIENT temperature. This testing was done with no trailer. Long Heavy Hauling has not been put to the test yet.


I Hesitate to even say that I saw Below Ambient Temperatures. I'm not sure if that is possible. When I left work the other day with Tech II hooked up, beginning IAT was 89*. On the highway going home, with water on, I did witness 85*.


There's nothing like Cool, Dense, Intake Air...

Billman, What intercooler are you running? What water injection kit? I went as far as to install all of my Heath Diesel water injection but have not installed a tank as I need the bed space. After watching the intake temps I think the bed space is going to get smaller by 10 gallons. I still want a intercooler and will buy one.

I bought the JK/Spearco. Bigger is better. It's Neat & Clean. Worth the extra money.


Turbo Tech's Intercooler has pipes running up through the fenderwell. Ugly AND Small. It would kill me to see that pipe behind the R/F wheel.


I made a Complete Custom WMI system. Very High Pressure, Very Small Nozzle. Custom Hidden Tank. So far, results are amazing.


I've read about your plow mount problems and the fact that you enter Truck Pulls from time to time. You won't regret either way you go. Guaranteed to pull that sled another 75ft.

I have had the JK large IC for about 4 years now and I never see any more than 120* inlet. Best performance mod money I spent on the old girl. Water injection will never do as well as a big IC.

Billy,


Don't know if there's any way of doing this on your current set-up, but did you ever isolate the operation of the intercooler from that of the WMI? Which is to say, did you ever measure IAT with the WMI alone?

More pressure is better. That's what I think. I don't need a big nozzle with Intercooler. IC does most of the work. Kinda like a 'Hard Part' that needs no maintenance or refills. Systems can be built very cheap. 'Found' most of my stuff at work.


Sorry, don't have access to camera. Would love to show it off. I'm kinda proud of it actually. Very neat, clean, & HIDDEN.

No. Never isloated WMI without IC. Can be done. Don't really have time right now. I think the 2 systems working together is amazing.
