These blower spacers and blankets are popular with the ctsv/holden platform. They recently released them for the hellcat / trackhawk. I figured I'd give them a try. Some guys are seeing 20-30whp gains from just adding this spacer. I wish I had the time to do an apples to apples, but they do work for sure at lowering IATS. My idle iat dropped 20 and my coolant temps have never been this cold. I'm still playing with it to see how cold I can get it.

More tinkering today with higher ambient. Car idled for 20 mins.

Be curious how much that helps at the track.

It will between runs as you come back down the return lane in order to bring the temps back down. When you go WOT, the PCM commands the A/C off on GM vehicles. So it isn't doing anything under WOT anyway. I'm sure dodge does the same as it's pretty much standard operating procedure.

It's purely for the recovery and maintaining lower temps between those runs.

I've wanted to add an interchiller to the V.

phenolic spacers and heat shields are old horsepower tricks. They work well in most applications. The Killer Chiller is a great help with fighting heat soak as well. All great mods.

I’m not positive if he has one but most guys run a ice tank so they have 5+ gallons of that cold water stored for the run, the temps should stay pretty consistent

I run a 2 gallon aux tank. I've had this system since last August. Spacers and blanket are the new addition. Recovery times are awesome.

I guess my point was, while you have the tank, the actual A/C isn't doing it during the actual run as A/C is commanded off. It's the post-run recovery and while you wait in the staging lanes that keep it cool and consistent temp-wise.

It's just the modern version of throwing a bag of ice on your intake between runs. :D

Yes but while you run and the ac is off you have a tank full of ice cold water so the whole run is also cold, it helps the recovery but also has way cooler temps during the run, similar to an ice box but no need for ice
