I'm not sure an intercooler really even serves much of a purpose with the psi these systems put out.

There is a diminishing return with intercoolers at low psi since lower psi applications dont produce much heat. Not only are they less effective when the temp differential isn't substantial between the charged air and the cooler air flowing thru but they create an air restriction by their nature that steals some efficiency from the supercharger.

Most of what I can find say they're not really effective until you start hitting 10psi, as that's where charge air temps really become too high and their short travel time in an intercooler can effectively cool it down to improve density in the double digit ranges.

I mean, good for future proofing, but if they had to make a choice, i dont think losing the intercooler for stage 1 setups or even stage 2 would probably hurt your performance to any significant degree.

One of the selling points of the proposed Camaro v6 kit is that it will fit under the stock hood without modification and will also feature the air-to-water intercooler.


From the brochure
Quote:
The E-Force Supercharger Kit for the Gen 2 HFV6-powered Camaro is designed to fit under the stock hood with no cutting or modifications, and this kit is backed by our 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty when applicable. The increase in horsepower and torque comes with little to no loss in fuel economy thanks to an integrated bypass valve. Features include an Eaton R1740 rotor assembly, with an integrated air-to-water intercooler core and front-mount heat exchanger for low inlet air temperature and increased power potential. Comes finished with a durable black powder-coating that blends nicely into the Camaro engine compartment.

They already have a kit on a car. It fits under the stock hood. They actually use that in their advertisement. Sounds like they initially made the kit for the Colorado, then adapted it to the Camaro.

Different kit the camaro one has a front mount heat exchanger probably to reduce the height of bundling it all under the supercharger and keep the height lower. still they have not fully released it go ahead call them try to buy it I will be suprised to hear you can. Of course its been a few months since I checked so maybe its finally out but its still not for sale on their site.

Its the same eaton unit yes but the rest is different.

Never mind I just looked at the colorado install instructions and seems they use the heat exchanger on that as well they just word it badly on their site. so this is going to be the same as the camaro one other then intake setup.
