Re: [DML] Intercooler

Well, yeah...

Assuming a perfect system (HA!)

Engine is 2849cc 4-stroke, meaning it draws half its capacity every 

So 5000 x 2849 x 0.5 / 1000 = 7122.5 l/min

(which according to

= 251.5 cf/min

Now that's at a pressure of 1 bar (atmosphere) and you are talking about 
7psi (14.7psi = 1bar) = 0.48bar of boost

so that's 1.48 x 251 = 371 cfm at 7psi of boost (and what fantastic 
swapping of units I must admit!)

- I'm not sure I'm right about the flow under boost but it seems to 
makes sense to me!

I'd go bigger because the PRV can safely be revved to 6500rpm if the 
breathing's good.
