VMAX Black Iceolator

Does anyone here know if the Black Iceolator keeps the engine temp below 185? Were the gains worth the 150 dollars? I think this is my next mod coming up.

Not sure about the temp but the gain is the highest among the bolt-ons for LLT.

You wont regret it.

Does nothing to keep engine temps down. What it does is isolate the engine temp from the intake manifold. That way you get cold air entering the engine. This by far is the best money spent to date IMHO. Drive your car and take off the engine cover and lay your hand on the aluminum intake. Careful it will be very hot! Install the Iceolater and you will be able to put your hand on it all day long.

amazing mod. I had to get the extension bolts to keep the same amount of thread as before but it was worth it!

This. It keeps the intake air temps down, not the engine temps. It is a very high bang for your buck upgrade.

Best bang for the buck mod you can do. Low to mid range TQ is the best.

Is the MACE Insulator better than the Black Iceolator? I just came across the MACE product.....not sure what I should get? Seems that the Black-Ice is more popular?

I believe the mace and the ice-olator is the same product just different brand and different sizes.

It is supposed to keep the manifold cooler idk by how much but I do know the manifold still gets pretty damn hot

The manifold never gets so hot you can't lay your hand on it & leave it there without it even feeling uncomfortable. And Yeah, Ms. Ruby loves to drag race. They don't call me SSlayer for nothing. My club guys tease me that I need to put C5 usernames of the SS's & now 2 ZL1's I have beaten, on my car like hash marks. Those guys better not be spinnin' or I will be winnin'! And of course the Mustangs I have beaten was great fun too. And yes the Iceolator helped with most of those.

If you were to install the Iceolator, would it require a re-tuning, that is, if I already have an aftermarket tune installed? (IPF)
Or, could I just install it with the tune I have now?

No you dont. I did mine after the tune and it keeps on impressing me every day.

Ok...I'm sold....I'm going to purchase it possibly later today so it'll be delivered to my work within 3 to 5! Then next Monday i'll get it installed at the local Autobody I get work done at.

I wonder if i'll notice a difference right off the bat!


PS - I deleted my RESONATOR like 2 weeks ago and when I accelerate, I notice this RASPY noise (almost like you put a SODA CAN on the FORK of your BIKE....If I decide to get the resonator put back on, should I just go with an XPIPE?

Cool! Thanks for the info! May have to invest in one soon. Got some other cosmetic stuff I want to do first though. Adding this to my list of future mods. :-)

Just ordered the Black-ICEO....I can't wait to get it and get it installed! I'm a rookie when it comes to installing bolt-on's, so I might just have a local shop do it for me that installed my DT Headers.

I wonder how much i'm looking at! Anyways....Thanks APEX

Thank you for your order. Be sure to let us know what you think once you get it installed.

I just want to cautiously state...don't expect a HUGE change.

That said, I still love this product. It helps tremendously in keeping air temps going into the engine cooler, and increases low to midrange torque.

What I noticed after installing this and driving around for a while was that my car seemed to pull better through the midrange rpms. Totally worth te $150 in my mind. But don't expect it to completely change the car either. Every mod adds up little by little.

Ruby

Absolutely yes I would in bracket racing. These are just the sort of folks I beat sometimes when conditions are just right. They may not be able to get a grip & spin too much or might be drawn to jump the gun & red light; either way a win is a win & I would take it. It is even fun though when I line up against one of those bad boy cars that blows me off the track. I have fun PERIOD. Only concern I would have is one of them getting out of control & crossing the line & messing up my Ruby.

You definitely should not go into it expecting it to be a supercharger but there is a noticeable improvement. Especially when you do it in conjunction with other inductions upgrades. It is high on the bang for your buck scale.

I wish I could afford a Supercharger. California is killing me with costs! Funny how California is ALSO the most corrupt State in this country. I would of thought Chicago.....but I was wrong. Anyways thanks again for the help, and i'll let you know once I get it installed how the outcome is and if I noticed a difference.

Got Black Ice installed yesterday. Paid 80 dollars to get it installed! I didn't notice a difference right away, yet this morning I cleared the TCM, re-tuned with Trifecta and after starting her up I heard a POPPING sound which leads me to believe it's the ICE.....Ive heard this happening to others after they get it installed. Vehicle pulls harder and is even quicker now....
