BoneDoc Posted January 6, 2011 Report Share Posted January 6, 2011 Last October I took my SS road racing at a 1.4 mile course south of Denver. about 60-70 degrees outside. about 5500 ft altitude. minimal humidity. After 3 hard laps the intercooler fluid was superheating and boiling over. The reservoir was too hot to touch, threw a high intake temp code. The heat soak was tremendous and easily noticeable from the drivers seat. I'm having the system checked out and so far found nothing. pump, fans seem to be working. fuses all OK. fans are all pulling air in the correct direction. I tried teflon tape around the intercooler cap to keep it sealed but the cooland spilled over and sprayed the car anyway. had my stock pulley on. I run 50/50 mix water and coolant with water wetter. Any ideas? my shop guy is starting to talk about ways to improve the system but i am inclined to think that the system is fine (haven't heard this issue on these forums) and that we should focus on trying to find the problem. Van Collier has been really helpful, as has Craig at SAI... but we haven't nailed the issue yet. It just doesnt seem right that after 3 laps on a this short course for this thing to boil over like that. not had this issue on the dragstrip. Thanks in advance for your ideas.
