Thanks for the info guys! Ill have to check out his setup. In order to get 550-600hp adequately cooled Ill almost definitely have to go with a dual radiator dual pump and sizeable intercooler. The frozenboost 12.5x12 600hp intercooler may not be enough, so I may likely have to do a trunk intercooler to get the IATs low enough.
I love the SSA Exige S intercooler upgrade, but I cant seem to find anything on the upgrade chargecooler.
Anyone have any thoughts/experience on using two smaller intercoolers in series?
Depending on what you are doing with this car an ice water tank would probably make more sense. You are only making heat in boost, when not in boost you would cool the water with intake air. I have a 5 gal ice water tank in the 750whp car, a PT1000 intercooler, and a heat exchanger that is not crazy big, and a water pump that isn't anything special and that is fine with ice for minute stints and no ice for street driving where there is a lot of off boost. For the track I would detune the car anyway.
For street/drag/autox you can get by with a lot less cooling than a track car needs. Even then you can likely tune for it and just lose power when heat soaked.
You will make more power with ice packing either way as you can get IATs below ambient. Cold air is more dense.
A few warnings... 600HP
If you plan on running an Elise with that power on a road course at high speed.... I hope your know what your getting into or your life insurance is up to date! High power makes a car harder to control.
I am not sure anything you can fit under the stock bodywork tire wise would be ideal. Chances are you will be spinning the rears at WOT in quite possibly every gear with anything ~245 on asphalt, and have to baby the throttle to keep the tail end from going sideways.
Also those axles, or more likely the CVs I doubt are going to last if you do a hard launch and actually hook at anything north of 500HP (probably less actually).
I sort of think I should have went for a high power NA or low boost 2gr instead of high boost in my supercharged 2zz car.
