AI Super Chiller Up Close

Here are some close up shots of the Camaro SS Super Chiller. Still need to get one on a Whipple. This one is for a KB but Maggie is the same as far as these pics cover. This is before insulating tape is put on cold fittings. Once taped up you canít see much.

Update:
Whipple Camaro, ZL1 and ZR1 now covered!
Also new custom AN O-ring Fittings used now not shown in these pictures.









Thie tube below is critical it canít be kinked or cracked; there is a gas inside that makes valve work. This valve is calibrated to work on Chiller. A lot of research (trial error) has gone into maximizing performance.



I also recalibrate the stock AC Valve when a Chiller is installed. Unfortunately on a KB you canít get to the stock AC Valve with blower installed. Itís almost impossible to get to AC charge port as well. That brings us to next pic.



This extra AC charge port is included for the KB. These have to be welded since they are not available for this size hose. This AC charge port is under car but itís still a lot better than the one behind Blower.

This adapter is unique to Camaro its what lets you tap into AC as well as turn off Cabin AC on competition model. CNC billet with custom lines welded on. The smaller CNC billet adapter with fitting welded returns Freon to Factory AC. In all this allows Chiller installation without cutting any hoses or lines. Only some plastic parts have to be trimmed for installation and one hole drilled to mount a line. So this is completely reversible if you want to return to stock.

Knew I could count on you! This one is going out to EZ Speed on a referral from a shop that did an install. They convinced him his KB needed it as well as a larger heat exchanger. I donít agree with the larger heat exchanger but the chiller is a must.
I believe I have the install bug worked out you had with mount bracket reversed. I have made updates all along. On another front my GTO kit will soon be available as I finally have adapters in hand! GTO should have been first out.

I know itís a large purchase but I believe if people realized just how well these work I could pay my new shop rent LOL.

Thanks for posting the pics! I cant wait to get this on my SS.
It really was more my decision to upgrade to a larger heat exchanger, I ordered it before I ordered the Chiller...and almost canceled the order on the heat exchanger after I ordered the Chiller...then I thought well it couldnt hurt! and then I found another reason to swap to the other heat exchanger...the one that comes with the KB kit interfears with my ZL1 Front bumper cover I just installed last week..LOL

Thanks again !

It looks like the Fog lights are at least as far apart as the SS. I hope your Chiller still fits with same mounting. This will be good to know for others.

Are the new H/E in and out ports similar to KBs? Here is a pic of a KB install I did. This is the diverter valve assembly, it comes with all the hoses installed long then cut other end to fit. Let me know before I ship so I can make changes if needed.

You can reference pic above, you will need it LOL. On the KBs I installed I raised water pump a little for hoses to fit best. I think I drilled bracket and cut off extra. All the hoses are already assembled just reuse the short 90 coming off pump. A small screw is used to mount vacuum solenoid to existing holes in the spoke of fan shroud the relay mount pin fits existing hole in core support near battery

I know you will love it but let us know what you think about install, quality and performance. I normally recalibrate stock Valve but only way to do that on a KB is before itís installed or remove the KB to get to it. Remember Support is only a phone call away.
Thank you, Eric

I still havent found the time to install mine yet.
Been working on my step-dads 67 Chevy truck..installing a Vintage Air setup on it.
I have a car show this weekend and plan on installing the Chiller sometime soon after that.

Howís it going, big question does Super Chiller mounting clear Bumper Cover. Hendrix is in same situation so a heads up would help. I have considered reversing existing top bracket so Chiller would hang same but farther to rear. Still use horn mount bolt hole but back side. You would need to drill out the 4 SS Rivets and replace them drill frame rail for the lower mounting bolt.

I looked into this for the V6 bumper since it did not clear but never followed through when they eliminated fog lights on V6 SEMA car need went away. The SS just clears thatís what I had to work with last yr when I started on Camaro. I donít know how much that would change existing pre assembled hoses but nothing we canít work around. I can make any new hoses you need free exchange. Just let me know what you need glad to help, this will be big help to me and Camaro community since the ZL1 bumper will be a popular upgrade as well as fitting an actual ZL1. Of course if it clears then this is all for not. Have you figured out Green Wire goes to green AC wire or AC relay out put terminal? I think taping green wire looks better.
Trek Out LOL

I tried sliding the chiller box in from the bottom just to see how it was going to fit...and it wouldnt fit at all.
So I went ahead and removed the front bumper cover and mounted the chiller last night where it is designed to go.
Hopefully today I can loosely assemble the front bumper cover back on and see what kind of interference problems I am going to run into then I will know more.
I did for a breif moment think about relocating the chiller box to right behind the front bumper (the actual metal bumper)and in front of the AC condenser... and putting it as far to the passenger side as possible.

I will try to remember to take some pics so that I can describe better what all is going on.

There are 2 already on the table but they are already water cooled. Another option would be to add a super Chiller after the air to air.

Do you follow what I was saying about mounting to rear? Try holding the Chiller core behind the body panel where horn is mounted. That would be around 4Ē back. Pics would be great.

With air to air you can either convert completely to water to air or add a water to air intercooler in line after the A to A. I like the later if you already have A to A itís cheaper and you still have A to A when AC is off. Super Chiller provides refrigerated water (via using existing AC) to be pumped through water to air intercooler. Water to air is much more efficient than A to A so parts typically are smaller. Then when you add a Super Chiller results are multiplied several times over.

Thanks for the support. I recognize my work on Super Chiller, who did your install and what Super Charger you have? Any comments on IAT or ICWT?
