Default WEAPON-X "Boost Freeze" Chiller

With a well known name for the best heat exchangers and ancillary cooling mods on the market, we have been working on the next step in cooling for the past year and after testing various combinations, we are finally ready to release our Boost Freeze chiller! We have developed a complete plug and play system allowing you to tie into your OEM air conditioning system! This is the very first chiller system even available for the gen 6 Camaros, C7 Corvettes, CTS V gen 3s, and the ATS V and we also have the previous gens covered too While this technology is not new, unfortunately to date, chiller kits have always been surrounded by mixed reviews from poorly designed kits and train-wreck threads between competing manufacturers bickering. However, simply put: the proven concept WORKS when done properly! For example, Dodge has just developed their own kit and launched it on the Demon.

How it works?
The chiller uses the OEM air conditioning system to reach sub zero temperatures in the supercharger heat exchanger coolant to remove MORE heat from the compressed air, making it denser, allowing for MORE timing, and thus MORE POWER!!! The cabin air conditioning on our kit remains unaffected and still allows you to remain cool inside while your supercharger gets frost bitten too

System features:
  • Insulated chiller unit
  • OEM quality hardware, lines, and fittings
  • Thermostat controlled heat exchanger bypass when temperatures are below ambient
  • Cabin diverter for race mode to channel ALL of the refrigerant to the chiller
  • Plug and Play hardware for an easy installation
  • Temperature monitor
  • Optional Bluetooth controller for custom programming settings


Product launch will occur next month with pricing and availability!

Pricing, similar to a a2w system? Harder on the a.c. compressor?

This is awesome! Will this work for supercharged c7’s that don’t have heat exchangers? (Non-z06)

Correct, we will have a complete kit for air to air guys to convert over to ATW with the chiller and one of our WXM Track Attack heat exchangers in the Z06 baffle, with pump etc.

The space for an air to air IC is terrible on the C7s and we haven't tested them all, but Procharger has a 9lb pressure drop at 21psi in the manifold on the F1s we've tested!!!

This is awesome. Eager to see it! Where do you fuys mount the heat exchanger for us A2A guys? Since im on an A&A kit, I have my IC horizontal mounted.

you have to delete the ATA IC and put the Z06 baffle in with our HX and an ATW box like on my ZL1

Since this is a rear mount turbo/supercharger setup though it won't be this complex

This should be great for the drag racers / street pulls! Just need to make sure you tank is big enough so you don't get the water going through the intercooler several times per pull.

Ben, are you going to be supplying the a2w intercooler as well or will you be recommending using say the PC one? You also mention a HE, is there enoughndemand for a HE with this system? Is there any changes needed to the gassing of the stock AC system (other systems have needed this to be sucsessful)? Any plans to market for the stock blower / HB / Whipple cars as well?

Sorry I missed this. Capacity can be a double edged sword. Not enough and it's as you said above, too much and it will take too long to cool down after it's been heated up.

We'll be offering a complete kit to swap out from the undersized PC intercooler. On the F1X 427 C7 it's going on here, we're putting our popular Track Attack Z06 HX up front in the Z06 baffle, we have an air to water intercooler in the port injected manifold, and the chiller tying into it, and we're reducing the F1X blower RPM and going straight from the outlet of the blower into the manifold!

I can tell you that with 21psi on my compound boost ZL1, the water temps are in the 30s and the air across the MAF post chiller are 44*! Now, they go through the rotors after that and are compressed again; however, then they go through the same chilled water in our custom high boost intercooler bricks inside of the blower, and go back down

Yes the first one is on one of our flagship builds, Storm's 427 F1X car and we ditched the Procharger FMIC and went with a custom manifold housing an internal Bell intercooler and is tied to the chiller and our WXM front mount HX that is used on the Z06s.

Car will be on the dyno this week!

From there, we're just waiting on a couple of tools left, and we will start the preorders while we're ramping up production!
