Improving performance of the A/C assisted engine cooler?

I remember setups for the Ford Lightning like that.   Very cool to see it improved/refined, it's a great concept.

Impressive acceleration numbers on that thing.  :afro:

Ford has done this type of system on several vehicles over the years.

It just seems odd to me that you could pick up more power from the cooler air than the A/C compressor and pumps take to run.   :confused:

Now if you turn off the A/C at WOT, then it could help short term, but the reservoir would heat up after a short while, and you'd lose the advantage.
On top of that, it all adds weight, which hurts handling and braking as well.

I'm pretty sure handling was the last thing on SRT's mind with this thing,  doesn't have some crazy 8 piston brakes on it too?

I have a on-track mind.  :D

Damn thing weighs 5,500 lbs. before you even put people in it... a little bitty interchiller isn't going to make any difference whatsoever. ;)

BTW, I've run a 3.2... in 93 degree weather... with 4 adult male passengers... :D

Just to keep this thing going...

I've since hit 0-60 in 2.6 seconds...
0-100 in 5.9...
And ran a 10.7 quarter mile... letting off before the end and coasting through at only 125 mph... :D

Over the holidays, I'm upgrading to the S1025 flex fuel (e85) package, porting the supercharger snout, upgrading to a 105mm throttle body, adding the FI Interchiller, and shooting for about 900 at the wheels. Booyah. ;)

Handles very well for what it is, and it has 400mm 2-piece front rotors with 6-piston Brembos and 350mm rear rotors with 4-piston Brembos. The stock 20" wheels barely fit over the front brakes and some people have had their calipers damaged by wheel weights that were too thick. Lol

Lol so ridiculous, in the best kind of way.  10.7 is no joke.  Whats the limit of the trans and diffs?  I assume 900 hp is pushing it

That's just wonderfully stupid.   I really appreciate the comic value of something that size going that quickly.  It's like watching the semi trucks race Pike's Peak.

Its probably got to be one of the best feelings though. Being in a jeep and destroying almost any car on the street and keeping up with some of the faster cars out there. That 105mm TB is going to be beast. Whats stock tb measurements? How do you plan to run the intake? What size is the current intake?

First thing I thought of when you mentioned semitrucks was old smokey then I recalled seeing a freightliner setup for pikes peak.
