It would be great for 1/4m cars that sit in a queue heating up.
Not sure there is much to be gained if mainly used on the open road/track, a Meth kit would likely be better option for that.

Interesting, never heard of doing that but it's a good idea. Data on it?

Some lambo guys with twin turbo kits use this to supplement the heat exchangers so they can use smaller cores for better stealth fitment. I heard it puts a huge strain on the ac compressor though and causes it to fail faster than normal. Plus all of the parasitic loss you get with the AC running and sometimes the car runs weird on idle.

wait a minute, the AC unit heat exchanger transfers heat form the refrigerant to the low temp inter-cooler water circuit

I found this out when you lose your low temp coolant first thing that happens is your AC stops working.

So when you use your AC your heating up your inter cooler low temp water

I do not think this works unless you also put the hot side of the AC heat exchanger to a separate radiator, does the kit also include that?

Or your just taking the heat out then dumping it back + losses, which end up in actually heating the water up?

HX BYPASS VALVE
In 99.99% of installs the customer is looking for all out drag racing, street racing and daily driving performance, so the front mount heat exchanger is deleted and replaced with the chiller and a reservoir. However should you wish to circuit race your car you may wish to retain your factory heat exchanger. For this we can supply a 4 port bypass valve which will give you ON/OFF control of when you use your heat exchanger. In most cases we recommend you simply delete the heat exchanger and donít bother with the bypass valve. The reason for deleting the heat exchanger is simple, the intercooler fluid is so freezing cold that the front heat exchanger is no longer a cooling aid, it will actually heat up the intercooler fluid.

Did you retain the factory heat exchanger?
Your car looks like a beast.

It's an Aussie company, it's popular on supercharged commodores here which is why I brought up the idea of putting one on a B58. Didn't realise it had been done to a S55 but very cool to see.
