Edit: Chuck, I am at full swing redoing the programming for machining all weekend on and off. Should start making chips in the next day or so


Cool. Hopefully my crypto will bounce back by then

Here is overall view of the drive. Steady increase of IC water temps the entire time, with an obvious spike during the onramp pull. Which kinda proves the point of the IC rad being too small, the IC water temp steadily increased even cruising under vacuum on the freeway for 2-3min.


Very interesting.

Have you decided which radiator to try next? Looks like Frozen boost has a wait list for the one you mentioned earlier.

Data is nice!!
Just beware the influence of your water temp on your other temps, as they correlate so perfectly, even your pre-ic..

I would like to see your data after/during a much longer drive making sure you are up to full operating temp..


Actual coolant temp leveled off at 176F about 8min into that drive. So in the data log photos above, the IC water temp climbed the entire time and never leveled out even at high speed on the freeway where one would think the massive airflow over the radiator would help to lower the IC water temp closer to atmospheric...

If you are going to push to the limit of MAT, to be on the safe side, I would calculate the difference in tempature between your water and MAT reading, and then add that to your MAT data to get closer to an estimation of your actual MAT..

If water = 80 and MAT = 100 then true MAT is probably 120..
True MAT = MAT+(MAT-Water)
Somewhere around there I’d expect to be closer to accurate..

Looks like your MAT reading touched 85 while water was 75 so I’d say your true MAT probably reached around 95..

You’re probably in the safe zone, MAT wise, up to around 130-150 max, so you are well in the clear for now..


I get what you are saying, but at WOT I'm not sure the temperature of the air entering the cylinder is going to be much higher than the IAT reading with a fast sensor.. But what haltech allows for that is super neat, is a calculated IAT table. It takes your coolant temp (not the IC water temp shown above) and RPM, and allows you to set a percentage value for each RPM/coolant Temp cell. That percentage is a scale between your coolant temp (100%) and your IAT temp reading (0%). Why? At low RPM, high coolant temp, your value could be set to 100% of the coolant temp value. At high RPM values, your calculated IAT can be 0% of coolant (aka whatever the IAT sensor is reading). Its function is so when your throttle is closed and air movement is slow, the calculated IAT the ECU is using is much higher than the IAT reading your sensor sees. When you are at WOT high RPM and airflow is supper fast, your IAT reading is what your IAT will be entering your cylinder.

I'll let the tuner use his fancy witchcraft and magic to use the new IAT data from the faster sensor to find the boost limits for me and they are what they are.


By water temp I meant your IC water temp, and full operating temp as in the point where your IC water temp stopped increasing during cruising/normal driving..

Whatever the temp is of whatever you have the MAT sensor screwed into is what will need to be calculated against..
Seeing it correlate with your IC water temp to perfectly, I suspect that is it’s largest factor, especially now that you say it correlates with your IC water temp much more than your CLT temp..

What I mean, is that the temp of whatever your sensor is screwed into dampens the reading of the sensor to it, as if it were a capacitor..


I forgot you have a fancy haltech and are going to hire a fancy witchdoctor to tame its black magic..

If he is any good at his craft, and you let him have his way, I expect to see some incredibly nice numbers from you..

I hope when you go to upgrade your heat exchanger for your IC, you go to an absolutely massive one, as big as it will fit, so that is removed as an excuse as much as possible..
Get a hecking big one..


I forgot I was talking to the guy with the EFR and a haltech..
I surely hope that you become some camaraderie competition..







To the best of my recollection, we have only ever seen properly intercooled and fueled engines blow from overreving, and that was at well north of 400HP..

...knock sensitivity...

This is basically another dutchpug build but with a 931 head..
Should be able to reach dutchpug levels if this IC is any good..

Don’t rev it, boost it!!
Remember, it’s a diesel..
Increase cylinder pressures, not RPMs..

The results; 352 rwhp @ 1.6 bar of boost pressure (around 400 engine hp)...

On an NA head..

We're going justttttt a bit bigger
(old core was 7.5" x 5.5", new is 18.5x5.5")



https://www.ebay.com/itm/324321625495?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

Should fit just fine, but gata figure out how to mount it. Routing hoses may be interesting too as I do still have the AC rad in there....

Oh this is going to be some cool testing. At first I thought this looks like the same one going into the '82 right now but it isn't

This looks bigger. Need to check my dimensions

With the warmer temperatures the temps are increasing but street driving and occasional boost runs not sure if it's needed.


Now that the summer is here, I'm running into some issues with heat.

I have a lower temp thermostat and fan switch but I've figured out that only the passenger side fan is coming on. My car previously had AC so I have two fans but I was not convinced that the wiring for the driver's side fan is connected to anything. It hasn't been an issue...driving on the highway or around town temps on the gauge seem normal.

I signed up for an autocross with the local Porsche club two weeks ago. The first run went well (though I went off course). The second run was my best run...on course and no cones knocked over. But as I was waiting for the next run, my temperature gauge started climbing. Ambient air temps were in the high 80s/low 90s. In the picture below the temp is creeping up, after the third run the needle was close to orange box so I called it quits for the day. The intercooler temperature gauge was also going up and up and not cooling down until I was on the highway driving home.



When I returned home I read up on the operation of the two fans...and then confirmed that the drivers side fan was not coming on. I connected 12V to the fan manually and it came to life.

I'm running a separate switch/relay for the intercooler pump and that draws around 3.5 amps from what I've read online. I decide to wire the drivers fan to that circuit figuring that there would be plenty of power and the wiring would be up to the task. That made a huge difference in the temperatures though not sure if the fan needs to be constantly running...it's pretty loud at idle.

I'm looking into a larger intercooler radiator. Frozen boost has a 10 X 13 model in stock...but it's blue...though will not be that visible. I don't have the AC condenser to worry about so there should be plenty of room.

Here's a question....should I wrap hose running from the cool side of the intercooler radiator to the intercooler? I found this with google: https://www.heatshieldproducts.com/hp-hose-sleeve
