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!”
