Is an intercooler "needed" with alcohol???

Post  DILLIGASDAVE on December 12th 2010, 12:28 am

How often does a "track only" turbo/alcohol combo not need an innercooler (intercooler?)? Does it just depend on each combo? Or is it more common that the cooler burning alcohol doesn't need one a lot of the time?

Unless you have abnormally inefficient turbo, ect, the alcohol should do a good job of keeping the IATs low.

Have a good day!

I would not even consider an intercooler with alcohol. I would add a alcohol nozzle up the airstream like Wolfe does to help cool the air more.

I tried that a couple years ago with E85 but couldn't get a jet small enough. I still have the nozzle that C&S made me and I may give it another shot sometime.
