Do any trucks use an A2W intercooler or are they all just aircooled?
Both Whipple and Roush use Air to Water, the Procharger is air to air
I don't understand where the supercharger community as a whole bashing started .
Yeah I freaked out a little, because I knew it was a Roush charger on Chris's truck and to see pictures of that beautiful piece of art in flames is downright disturbing. However, I tend to over evaluate EVERYTHING. It appears the main issue once again is Hennessy's shafty work. "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck."
I'm still interested in discovering what EXACTLY is causing these Hennessy Raptor fires. Blaming the supercharger as a whole tells no one anything. The main reason I joined this site is to share and gain knowledge.
Blaming "ALL" of anything in a group is known as stereotyping, just saying...
... If only ROUSH had an opinion
It's just a few misinformed and uninformed that have something ridiculous to say. LOL
Forced Air Induction is the wave of the future and is still going through some growing pains,
but with the new technologies coming around it's going to happen, you can't deny it.
Roush, I would think really can not make a comment on the current situation.
And they only seen to come on here to sell something.
Actually they come on here more than you think. If they're getting involved in a investigation into the LPR incident and would happen to find anything that involved our kits you would hear about it as soon as it was diagnosed. Until then I wouldn't expect them to comment esp with everyone involved in that build prob trying to figure out what happened.
Forced induction is not new by any means. Maybe in passenger vehicles, but not commercial. Blowers and turbos have been used since the beginning of combustion engines.
Also, heat soak in our applications would be referring to all the components of the system being overheated due to constant use without sufficient cooling. Ever had a blower car on a dyno, made a number of pulls, then packed ice bags around the blower? Or been to the race track and done the same thing?
I would think someone dropping that much coin on a whipple for their truck would be experienced in those things.
Yes, I should have explained myself better,
with the new age of computers and software being implemented in automobiles does enable the ability to control these
forced air induction applications to make them more reliable for general purposes.
I know the term heat soak is used in the racing community foran SC and I use the term too,
And it started I believe with the Turbo actually.
I was just nit piking and rattling a cage.
But it is technically wrong, when you refer to it when sucking in hot air over the intercooler, such as driving in the hot dessert.
Back in the late 80’s this would always come up at the staging area behind the grand stand while waiting on line.
And yes I’ve seen a few guys crack their blowers, intake manifolds, heads and headers doing the ice thing.
I just had one maybe two jugs of water that I would pour over the radiator. I only had NA beaters with junk yard parts.
I never had money, poor working slob back then. LOL

The best things in life cost money. LOL
Sorry I just had too.
We have been packing ice on motors post runs for as long as I can remember regardless of FI or not so I'm not sure of your point. Thought you would have known this...
When the hell did this thread become some debate about heat soak. I think everyone here has a good understanding of it esp the guys running sc kits, hence all of us have the upgraded or largest intercooling setup for our trucks kits. It's def a issue and a performance hinder compared to a cool engine taking in cool iat, lol a good example is how most 'big name' companies pull dynos for products on their vehicles.
Anyways where's this thread fucking going? For all the guys who have negative views on sc setups..cool thanks for the concern but honestly you should prob post them up in once of those "Should I get a supercharger, or etc" threads that eay you can help someone out with your opinion on the topic. O and don't forget to make sure they know they'll need a fire retardent race suit. In all honesty just trying to keep this thing at w/e focal point Dan had esp since he didn't know this thing is centered around that douche shop at the time. But lets take the pissing match or supercharger bashing somewhere else..hell lets make a new thread with a poll on how many Roush/Whipple/Procharger owners that have burst into flames or had any type of major issues. I'm leaning to a high percent of none with your usual hiccups here and there.
Too much Whining! Lol!
