There are some fairly big pipes coming out of the inlet manifold area. I guess it has a fairly big charge cooler fitted for those moster turbos

Strange though becuase i spoke to some draggers at pod.

They only ever use charge coolers as the turbo/IC setup draws a lot of heat soak on the line and really doesn't become effective until halfway down the strip..

Where-as a charge cooler will still be feeding cold air in while sitting on the line and will give cold air all the way down the strip..

Its interesting how different draggers have different views on how to do things

All tarts though, give em a corner and their buggered

*TAKEN FROM SILVER FOX RACING WEBSITE*

The brief was to mimic the installations that had been so successful in The States. Turbos scooping air off the bonnet and force feeding the intercooler which, in turn is fed by the ice reservoir before sending the frozen air back through the car, past the ‘Godzilla valve’ and throttle body into the plenum where the FAST system does it’s thing. All of the tube work is held together with aircraft spec Wiggins connectors which make the whole system removable in minutes. I hope you agree, the installation looks awesome. Jon and the guys did a great job.



Note: Webster built the engine stuff for Silver Fox Racing
