    Default Road Course with a Blower

    When I go to memphis in May I will roadcourse my car for the first time with a TVS1900. It has a decent blowercam/headers and probably puts out 525 or so to the wheels. Running about 7PSI. I've never beaten on the car for 20 minutes straight with forced induction before. How well will the stock intercooler hold up? Are there any mods that can be done to keep things cool? Any advice is appreciated,

    The biggest issue I have is trans temps actually. I have a trans cooler (7x13 or so) with a fan mounted on it and 160 deg thermostat to activate the fan. I have also just added a B&M cast aluminum trans pan to help with cooling. On the blower itself, I had mounted a Mustang GT500 heat exchanger in series with the Magnuson one. It helped recover the temps quicker after WOT and maybe a little on keeping IAT's down. My 1900 was overdriven and making around 15 lbs of boost so I don't know how yours will be except cooler than mine! The added power will sure get you out of the corners quickly!
