THE really clever deal with these blowers is the liquid-cooled supercharger case that keeps the front and rear bearings at the same temperature, increasing rotor and bearing life. The intercooler liquid is normally cooled by a separate front-mount radiator, but Cliff is going with a much cooler solution – literally.
“There’s a business in Sydney called FI Interchillers, so instead of running a radiator we’re using one of their interchillers. These engines build heat run after run, but with this arrangement we can keep the heat constant. With a radiator, the best you’re going to get is ambient; with this set-up you can be running down the highway at -4 degrees!”
