What Does An Intercooler Do?

An intercooler is an intake cooling device used on turbocharged and supercharged engines. An intercooler cools the air that gets compressed by the turbocharger or supercharger, which in turn reduces engine temperatures and thereby increasing the density of the air supplied to the engine.

Front mounted intercoolers are placed in the front of the vehicle. This area of the vehicle allows for almost any size intercoolers to be installed. The only con to front mounted intercoolers is the amount tubing required to plumb the intercooler. The air must go from the engine (turbo or super charger) to the front of the car and then back to the engine (or intake). The problem with large amounts of tubing is "Turbo Lag", it takes longer for the turbo or super charger to build pressure.

We are now in stock with Mishimoto Universal Intercoolers.
