AFCO UPGRADE HEAT EXCHANGERS  FOR  CAMARO ZL1 SUPERCHARGERS   "A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between a solid object and a fluid..."  "https.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_exchanger     In automotive heat exchangers are used primarily to cool water and oil. For those of us with an eye on performance whether for racing, towing, or just in search of the better grin factor heat exchangers are installed on vehicles with superchargers. With cars such as your Camaro ZL1 that is equipped with a supercharger, heat exchangers are upgraded with a more noble goal in mind than just cooling water and oil....

IMPROVE COOLING, POWER AND RELIABILITY WITH RADIATOR PRESSURE

JEAN GENIBREL

  HOW TO INCREASE RACING COOLING SYSTEM PRESSURE FOR RACING, TOWING, AND OFF ROADING TO HELP COOLING. Adding tape to the front of the grill helps race cars turn, accelerate and brake more effectively. In turn, the reduced cooling must be overtaken by the cooling system. The new racing radiators can handle extremely high pressures and temperatures.   New radiators, especially those of the double pass design, have been designed to increase the internal pressure of race car cooling systems. Companies like C&R Racing and Griffin Radiators have been involved in racing throughout the world with some of the best race...

PURPOSE-BUILT RACE CAR PRESSURIZED WATER SYSTEMS

Alex Hernandez

  RACING PRESSURIZED RACE CAR COOLING SYSTEMS can improve aerodynamics by allowing cars to run temperatures as high as 265 degrees. How high can I run my water temperature? What type of radiator can I use that will accept high pressures? By Jean Genibrel   Pressurized cooling systems are becoming ubiquitous in racing and off-roading.  Indy Cars, Formula Ones, NASCAR cars have used this type of cooling system for some time now with great success.Pressurized cooling systems are finding acceptance in off-road racing, short track, and road racing. Properly designed pressurized cooling systems, such as those manufactured by C&R Racing,...

RACING AND PERFORMANCE RADIATORS Racing Performance Radiators with C&R Racing Distilled or tap water in aluminum radiators? Which water wetter to use?   By Jean Genibrel   RACING AND PERFORMANCE RADIATORS Racing, performance, towing and off-roading    The cooling system is often underestimated by many race teams, owners, and especially privateers when they build or modify a racing car or engine. A team upgrading to a motor with more power or after adding more serious parts to the engine such as a bigger cam, or moving to higher compression would be best advised to build up their cooling system.   Drag...

SAVING POWER FROM WATER PUMPS BY BLUEPRINTING

JEAN GENIBREL

Installing the right racing water pump or making some simple modifications can save as much as seven horsepower.  Water pump damage occurs over time as heat and contaminants destroy the internal parts of the pump. Some of this damage is evident, but bearing wear or impeller deterioration may not be so visible. If the remanufacturer reuses these components, their performance can compromise the system, reduce its cooling capability and cause more damage to your engine. It is only a matter of time before the unit fails again.   Use silicone sealant very sparingly, if at all. Especially do not make...

Rod stroke ratio comparison Formula 1 and NASCAR Cup motors

JEAN GENIBREL

NASCAR and FORMULA 1 ROD STROKE RATIO & PISTON SPEED   It is pointless to address the length of the connecting rod in any engine, racing or otherwise, without looking into the ratio of the length of the rod to the crankshaft stroke. We can calculate the rod stroke ratio (RSR) by dividing the rod length by the stroke value. What is more, the piston pin location in the piston also affects the result of the calculations. Moving the pin closer to the thrust side causes the piston to acquire shorter rod characteristics. Conversely, when we move the pin toward...
