The ScienceofSpeed Racing Heat Exchanger replaces the smaller standard heat exchanger used in the ScienceofSpeed, Comptech, and Vortech supercharger systems and is ideally suited to racing or high performance high boost applications.
The heat exchanger, mounted in the front of the car, is used to dissipate heat from the coolant that circulates between the aftercooler (intercooler) and the heat exchanger by the way of the water pump.
This larger aluminum dual pass heat exchanger increases the surface area and volume of the core by 360% over the standard heat exchanger. The dual pass design allows longer dwell time in the core for increased cooling efficiency. Unlike other "upgrades" available, this heat exchanger is properly sized and constructed for heat exchanger use, allows sufficient air flow to the factory radiator, and is reasonable in weight (only 1.2 lbs heavier than the standard heat exchanger). No cutting or modification is required to factory sheet metal for installation.
The heat exchanger mounts to factory mounting locations using three adjustable aluminum mounting brackets and features billet aluminum hose fittings.
The heat exchanger is available in bare aluminum or black powdercoat. Paint used is a low solid type designed for radiators / heat exchangers (similar to factory coating) which allows the heat exchanger to maintain high efficiency.
ScienceofSpeed Supercharger System Upgrade:
The heat exchanger upgrade is available as a complete kit for existing supercharger installations. For new ScienceofSpeed Supercharger Systems, the upgrade is available at a reduced cost as certain components of the standard heat exchanger system are not needed.
