And a very good choice it is in its own right Bruce. To each his or her
FWIW, one of the FMIC prototypes has been plumbed with four (4) 1/4tr inch
npt threaded mounts, two on the inlet side, two at the outlet to which one
could affix things like water injectors; + a pair of the Davtron
thermocouples or two pressure readouts. That is if one were so inclined.
Joe P as for the benefits of doubling up, I'm not sure you realize much
gain. I suspect each technology might only be good for removing its
respective % of what ever the 1st cooling method left over. i.e. A 70%
efficient cooler leaves only 30% of the residual heat for the next 70%
method to attack. 70% of the 1st 30% starts to get pretty small. 70% of
the first 100 degrees nets you a 70 degree temperature drop right. 70% of
the 30 degrees left over only gets you another 21 F. But then again, .....
are you a belt & suspenders man Joe, or just belt or suspenders? I think
with both, you could always convert the Water injection system to an oil
sprayer a la Bond, James Bond.
