View Full Version : Straying Away from the 'Gilbert Setup"
06-28-2005, 08:18 PM
Alot of you might know me and Gilly have alot of the same mods. Well he almost had me talked into a Meth Injection Kit for my 02 GT, but i think i am going to try something different. I'm going to do an A/A intercooler. Not only does it look pretty, but i won't forget to refill the tank :oops:
We'll see what the numbers say. I can always add the Injection Kit after the intercooler anyways :P
Not sure the purpose of the thread, but i will say, i am going to do the enitre fabrication and enginering of the kit. I figure i can have it done in a few days once i get all the needed parts. :idea:

I had an A/A intercooler, they are not what they claim to be. A lot of tubing and had bucking issues because the bypasses I had were not enough to allow all that air out that was in the pumping. There website http://www.fasttrackperf.com/
if you want a cooler then get vortech water to air or the Snow performance like Gill.

The aftercooler is great on the track from what i have heard, and the Snow kit is a nice setup for the price and weight....I just know that the A/A will always be there.
Here is what i have in mind and you guys can help me adjust it as needed.
3" Stainless Manderal Tubing
Huge Bar plate front mount Intercooler
Vortech 3.33 pulley
Vortech Mini Race ByPass
I'd like to also polish the blower, but i am yet to find a set technique on how to do this effectivly.

I know i couldnt be more happy with my Vortech water to air aftercooler. When i was getting a tune done to the car, i unhooked the front mounted intercooler and had a air gap in the system. Not letting the cold water to cool the air. I was only making like 6lbs of boost like that..
Once we figured out what the problem was, and the system was working correctly, it jump to 9lbs of boost and almost 75h/p just from the cool water running through the system.
Its always there, just like your air to air...but always cool also. I myself havent done much research on the air 2 air system. So good luck with the install and let us know what becomes of it and how you like it!
