That's a great question! There is a A2W cooler on the car but not sure how effective those are, can't hurt.

I know this because I ran a PWR cooler with almost a 5 gallon tank and at the end of a 1/4 mile pass and back to the pits I had about ambient temps in the water , some times warmer

Guess I'll have to rethink it then, most track sessions are 20 minutes. Sounds like I'd be down to cool water after only a warm up lap? And ambient after one lap at speed. For this year it will have to do, maybe I can clock the SC head and run a FMIC for next year?

Thanks
Dan

Waiting on the long block

I'm looking at this one, holds 2.6 gallons. Plenty if I ever run a cool suit too.

dcspeed ...and the trailer to haul it on

NJSVTGUY lol funny you mention AC, I'm picky on that too and I'm in NJ. A lot delete it but I want 10's with AC and full interior. Waiting on my 10s motor that's at the machine shop.


Yeah you gotta follow your vision. Only down side on cars is you may come to the conclusion there is no one size fits all answer. There may come a time when you want a commuter car, a drag car, a track day car....then there is the truck to haul. It doesn't end.

Turbo Turtle my project has became more of a race/drag car than i originally wanted and i don't think i would ever be completely happy with it. i am going to get a miata, do a stock ls1/t56 swap with irs 8.8, and AC. make a very fast, very streetable car that i can autocross and still get over 30mpg.
