Just wondering. . . someone has to have some insight!!!
NB: Just because someone makes xxx horsepower with xxx intercooler, it doesn't mean that that intercooler is ideally suited for that application or that horsepower level. For some applications (eg. 1000+rwhp drag racing), the GReddy 4-row isn't big enough! GReddy designed the 3-row for the oem twins and the 4-row for a single turbo.1_MAD_DAWG said:IMHO i think the greddy 4 row is overkill..even with a single..unless it's a T88 making 900 rwhp..hell.."walser" and SW are using greddy 3 row intercoolers..both are making 800+ hp. I think that's the best bang for the buck.
I don't disagree that the 3-row will work adequately for <= 700rwhp 'street applications'. I just find it strange that GReddy built the 3-row for oem twins (this was the only kit you could get with the 3-row for a very long time when it came out) and the 4-row for the T-78 (& T-88). I know of several T-78's that aren't pushing over 700rwhp. On the other hand, I'd bet more than a wooden nickel that any mkiv drag racer putting down over 650rwhp would benefit from the 4-row.Andi said:In my opinion the 3-row is big enough for street applications.
I guess this means that no 700+rwhp cars road race. Until I get my car on the track, I'll have to defer to your expertise on this subject. :devil:For those that want to make really big power... a 4 row might be warranted as long as you're not going to road race... but for any < = 700rwhp application I'd get the 3-row without a second thought.
Fwiw, I also agree that the ideal setup for roadracing is dual-smic (with brake-ducting of course).ruup2it said:I think what Andi meant for tack use, is that there would be a substantial amount of air blocking to the radiator. Some people may be against FMIC for track use, let alone a 4 row as opposed to the 3 row.
