    What "Moves" The Intercooler Coolant?

    What keeps it circulating-is it an electric pump, or off of the water pump?

    yup, electric pump under the lower air cleaner box. easy to see once air box is removed, this is what needs ice imo, not the expansion tank. be cool to bootyfab a box for it to stick dry ice in.

    the charge air cooling system uses a 250W electric coolant pump.

    alas....the diagram shows that the tank is nothing but an expansion tank. The pump is where to stick the COOL if people feel the need to do so......

    That diagram is exactly what I was looking for. I am thinking about installing the "Killer Chiller" on my car. I was wondering which hose on the back of the supercharger lid was the input to the supercharger cooling system.

    Has anyone heard about anyone installing the Killer Chiller on their HC?

    We have use the killer chiller often in a variety of intercooled vehicles. It works very well and we usually see a drop of ~20F in most applications.

    I'd like to try it on the Hellcat also, as the temps get warm really quick, and due to the safe control system, it reduced power significantly. Of course, tuning will leave these safeties in place, especially for street driven vehicles.

    The only downside of the standard kits is a loss of efficiency in cooling the inside of the vehicle down. Our Hellcat Charger has had a lot of street duty, with the family, so we will consider it for testing later and find ways to make it more efficient.
