It'd be a cool deal, especially if you could do it cleanly.
I know the 6.7s run them. What do the post turbo, pre CAC boost temps look like?

Im not sure you can monitor the post and pre temps on a 6.7. If I get a chance at work, I will check. I was thinking about installing one on my 95 and running engine coolant through it. Don't know if will work though. I dunno

I though that was how it was done?
I didn't think you could monitor temps on a 6.7, but I just mean in general. Like has someone done that?

I have a CX Racing A2W unit that got outlawed in a local race class that I was planning on running but never came to. I was entertaining the idea of plumbing it and using an 03 Cobra pump, heat exchanger and tank to complete the fluid side. I think it would be a slick setup and more consistent that using ambient air temp.

thats what im thinking, move my washer res and my overflow and install the intercooler there. i was going to run the coolant from my engine through the intercooler. its controlled to around 190 degrees, and it would be alot more consistent in varying temps. the 6.7s have a dedicated system for the intercooler and the trans cooler with a heat exchanger and pump
