Hi Gang I'm doing few upgrades on my M113 K motor like bigger pulleys, bigger throttle body ,split supercharging cooling etc ,and I want to wrap SC cooler which is barried in V-block valley other words Death Valley LOL I'm going to use DEI reflective GOLD tape which is available on eBay
and now to get even better results I was thinking to use bigger sheet (blanket ) to put in V-Channel as well but now since cooler would be wrapped already there shouldn't be much harm on it from heat sink and on the other hand if block would be wrapped too there would be no heat transfer to space between block and the whole supercharger with cooler ,and whole heat would be trapped in block itself and here is my question what should I do cuz wrapping just cooler is ok keep just away from heat ,but engine block on the other hand might be risky to keep the heat trapped and not being transferred. All help would be much appreciated
There are many things you can do before wrapping components (not as effective, and prevents components from self cooling against air in the engine compartment, not good for sleeves, harness, plastic components... etc.
Look into integrating ice tank, AC cooling, intake wax spacers... etc.
These solutions decrease comfort and reliability, but extreme performance call for extreme solutions...
should be fine if the car is not a daily driver...
