Default Charge cooling a T-5R

I've decided to switch to water/air cooling on mu 850, in the hope of being able to easier cool down the intake charge between quarter mile runs.

That copper tubing looks scary,

You might want to make sure that its supported or has some type of strain relief.

I haven't noticed any difference in throttle response with the reduction in pipe length.

Two years of running, and the charge cooler has been faultless.

About the same as before, although due to the short pipe run, it does hold boost better.
