    true, however, i believe i'll be able to tackle that situation by letting my car run / idle for 5-10min after a session with the a/c on. this should theoretically get the fans spinning to pull air over the rad & condenser, keep freon pumping allowing it to cool back down, in turn un-heat-soaking my intercooler water... all while cooling my supercharger down because i'm installing a phenolic spacer in the manifold that requires circulating air to expedite the cooling effect it has on the hardware.

    mine's for road racing, too - hence why i'm keeping my HX instead of completely removing it (which would be better for cooling in the short game). adding capacity will take longer to heat-soak the coolant (think boiling a pot of water for spaghetti... will a small pot or large pot boil faster?). i did the 'drag' kit because it adds the valve to bypass the evaporator so it won't condensate & drip water on the track.
    i also saw a pic on the website where he hooked 2 chillers in series - which i reckon effectively doubles the time the coolant's in contact with the refrigerated lines... but that seems more like a drag-specific benefit because heat over time will still eventually soak the system.
    your best bet's still to just call the guy at Kincaid Performance (or the dude on here - though his system's twice as much).

    killerchiller.com

    his website has most of the info/descriptions, and his phone number if you'd like to discuss the twin-compressor or twin-condenser feasibility.
    being the developer, he's way more knowledgeable & helpful than i could be for something that specific. i'm gonna do his drag setup & run a bigger tank to allow an extra gallon or so of fluid. he felt that should be enough.

    so with that chiller setup, i ended up buying the original Kincaid KillerChiller system. his usual recommendation is to remove the stock HX and use the chiller by itself because all the HX would do would actually be to warm up the fluid due to the R134 dropping the coolant to below ambient temp. that also opens up more & cooler airflow over the condenser & radiator (which should also run a cooler t-stat like 180 or 160).
    after talking with him 2 or 3 times about my setup (TVS blower that i road race), he actually recommended i keep my small stock HX to combat the eventual heat soak of the refrigerant (which he also suggested swapping to industrial 12A) + add a larger expansion tank to increase my coolant capacity by 1-2 gallons.
