This would be for just the core only unless I get a very good response then i might think about putting a kit together. Also i'm looking for a lower intake an eaton 65 housing and a gasket so i dont' have to have a car down for R&D. Let me know who would be interested and i'll start putting together exact pricing.
I already have one designed, but not the various other problems. It will be more expensive than a S2 intercooler because you need to modify the alternator bracket, and there is no off-the-shelf solution for the fuel rail and injector retainers.
Mine is in 3D CNC machine language already, but is NOT a traditional intercooler. It'* a water-cooled isolation plate. I chose this route due to thermal analysis research on the M62 Eaton.
If you raise the SC, you'll have problems. Take a look at the nosedrive/alt bracket attachment and you'll see what I mean. This is not going to be a cheap alternative, but I've kept potential costs down by simplifying the design to not be a heat exhanger.
The hottest surface of the M62 setup is the inlet of the SC believe it or not. If you provide a seperate path from another cooling source for this and prevent hot coolant from pre-heating your SC and TB, this can be alleviated, keeping the supplied air cooler before compression.
The double gaskets and cooling plate will solve the 2nd hottest surface which is the outlet face of the Eaton.
