I ventured into Intercooler cooling lol.  Bought this off Amazon. disconnected the washer line at the junction near the shock tower. I ran the new line in the same path as my UPR CC line. Routed it to the front and used the motor to drain all of the wind shield washer fluid out of it. This is where I ran into my first issue. When you depress the fluid button the damn windshield wipers start moving. That is no good. So I pulled the relay for the wipers hoping it wouldn't kill the pump did. Damn it.

So I made the executive decision. Who needs wipers if you just keep going fast? Haha! Wiper removal was easy. Take off the 15 mm nut holding them them on. I used PB blaster first so it helped getting the wipers off the splined mounting rod. I threw the wipers in the trunk and I have a small tool kit in there as well in case I have to throw them on quickly. I rarely drive my SHO in crappy weather so I am not worried.

I mounted the fan pattern sprayers onto my trans cooler mounts. They spray directly down between the condenser and the IC. Both of them almost spray the whole intercooler. When deployed the water gets pulled into the IC and then has to pass through the radiator before getting to the fans. I had my GF hold the button and I watched and made adjustments. Hardly any water except a very fine mist made it past the fans.

I loaded the windshield washer with a bunch of ice water and proceeded to do some basic testing. It was 93 degrees ambient and I got the car good and heat soaked. First pull IAT's started at 145 and dropped to 132 without using the sprayer. Next pass I pre-sprayed and soaked the IC with ice water at a stand still. Then I lauched. I wanted to see if any water would effect any aspect of the launch. IAT's started at 145 but quickly dropped to 118. So the ice water netted me a drop in 14 degrees. For reference on a stock tune every 10 degrees over 100 degrees the computer pulls 1 degree of timing. So I feel this could be a quick mod for the stock IC guys wanting a bit more cooling.

I will still need to datalog the runs. I left my computer at home. I will check to see the difference in temp after IC and temp at the top map sensor with and with out spraying the IC. I know we get hot in the intake because of the coolant pipe and engine. So I may have to yank the intake and heat wrap that pipe. I since the intake will be off, I might as well inspect the valves and walnut blast them it I have too.14 dollars for 14 degrees? Worth it in my book.I still have that CO2 chiller bar to install as well. Hopefully I can water log the IC and use the CO2 to freeze the cooler.

Thanks! Its getting there. Next step is intercooler, hpfp and meth. I want to make at least 450whp. Hopefully that'll get me there.

As someone who snapped his PTU in half myself .. Quick Question .. Are you waiting for about 20 minutes of driving before getting on it?  IE getting the PTU Fluid to about 180f+?

These Ptus are 'fine' when warm .. but cold are extremely easy top break with the oil cold.

Relatively quickly.  About 5 to 10 minutes of idle each time.  A couple miles of driving then I would like to open it up on a back road on the short drive home from work (4 miles away). 

I am told to be getting it back on Monday.  We shall see.

The 2.7 is now slouch for sure, but geezuz, that's asking an awful lot of an engine of that size that's gotta lug around the sheer mass of a Bronco.

I'd be worried about longevity.

Even more so with the 2.3 option.

I suppose time will tell.

The 2.7TT is lugging around Crew Cab 4x4 F150's pretty darn well, so it shouldn't be a problem with a lighter Bronco and the 10-speed auto will help make easy work of it.  The 2.3 on the other hand will feel taxed similarly as it does in Explorers, but when you're going 1.5 mph to flex on a curb in the mall parking lot, it should more than do the job.
