    I don’t think I understand. It’s definitely required. But then you go on to say that that first gen was quicker than your cooled unit? Interesting. I can tell you right now that heat soak is an issue for me.

    I’m hoping that the ceramic headers I just got, the campion radiator, which had been on backprder for 2 months, and MAYBE a way to vent hot air like (god forbid) hood spacers would be enough to bring the temps down.

    If only someone made a fiberglass hood with vents that didn’t look ricey. It would definitely be on my truck

    A methonal kit depending on how much you actually were spraying on Boost would solve most of your problems. A methonal kit can lower temps 100 degrees.

    The heat problem is actually created by the amount of boost to push.

    Each pound of boost creates 10 degrees of heat.

    I have zero heat soak problems at 10 pounds of boost only after I got the methonal kit.

    Before I had heat soaked issues

    Yeah, methanol is on the list. I just don’t want to deal with it yet and I can’t decide on the system I want. I’ve mentioned before in another thread that it would be perfect to be able to get rid of the 7th injector but to use the controller for timing and a menthol map. In theory I could get a PWM solenoid and hook the 7th up to it and use the map. This is the exact same setup all the companies are moving to with their top of the line systems. Hopefully it would allow me to finely tune the amout of methanol sprayed. But I don’t have the smarts to know how to rig it up like that.

    I also don’t like the idea of having to keep an eye on fluid level and keeping it topped off. I’ve been thinking of installing the biggest tank I can find in the bed. Hopefully it would last several weeks.

    We were both pretty heavily loaded as we were chasing/racing that weekend. He had gears/35’s and I was stock gears and 33’s. I really think it was gearing that did it, but his truck was seriously quick. With all the additions I’ve done over the years, I’m way quicker now.

    found this.

    Supposedly the venom cooler can lower temps by 50%. Now, how cooling the nose cone cools off the whole blower is yet been confirmed by looking at other forums. The 4.0 blower would probably have the biggest benefit since they already have the aftercooler and you can tap it in.

    These guys also used to offer light weight rotors. They’re drilled by 1” all the way through and you can still find that page by a google search + steigermeier. But you cannot find it on his website from the main page. Must not offer that anymore.
