Let us know how it goes! I’m anxious to see how it fits with that bumper.

How’s 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 that’s what I had to work with last yr when I started on Camaro. I don’t know how much that would change existing pre assembled hoses but nothing we can’t 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.

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 4” 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 it’s 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?

John Lee @ Atlanta Performance and Fabrication did the install for my 2.8 KB.
On our first test, we heat soaked the car in stop and go traffic for about 20 minutes, the IAT's were around 150 and the water temp was 120. After about four minutes with it running, we saw the IAT's drop down to 109 and the water temps dropped down to 57!! I could tell with the seat of the pants meter that the car had a much better response with the chilled water in 85 degree ambient temps. It's a good system for helping the IAT's stay close to ambient on "HOT" days!
