the roads in Paarl are fu(*& all drains blocked and dams everywhere, as i left the house a cloud burst and it was wet kept going for 15 min, had to swim to the car and back and then we aquaplaned home
I think you misunderstood my reference to "hydrolock" as meaning "aquaplaning".i was doing about 120 and as soon as the wheel slows down it drops to the tar and grip resumes, it takes about a second and it was big dams, u can even feel when asr tranfers to the other wheel, and when both sides are working at the same time, u can do the speed limit with confidence
i wonder what the effect of the turbo and intercooler would be on the possibility of this happening.Just so you know, diesel engines suffer hydrolock much easier than most petrol engines, because the combustion space is usually a lot smaller. Just a little bit of water can therefore fill up the entire space.
The +/- 4L of intercooler should catch most of the water and might save the engine if you close throttle quick enough, but the sudden cooling of the turbo will crack the turbo housing.i wonder what the effect of the turbo and intercooler would be on the possibility of this happening.
