Chevy Silverado Duramax Engine 2002-2003, Aluminum Diesel Intercooler Pipe by MBRP®. Material: Aluminum. Inlet Diameter: 3". CARB Compliant: Yes. If you’re on a quest for horsepower, then upgrading intake airflow through the intercooler is one of the stops along the way. This connecting pipe between the engine and the intercooler not only improves flow, but the polished aluminum will dress up your engine bay at the same time.
- Polished aluminum
- Mandrel-bent for constant inside diameter
- Outflows stock plumbing for more power
- Improves power and torque
- Hardware included
Air exiting the compressor side of the turbocharger is hot, and not in a good way. So it’s routed through the intercooler, essentially a big radiator, to cool off before it goes into the engine. Cooler air is denser, and denser air makes more power because there’s more of it per cubic inch. So why strangle your engine with restrictive plumbing back and forth to the intercooler. MBRP has applied its industry-leading mandrel-bending constant-diameter technology to lightweight aluminum tubing, and then polished it until it gleams.
Fifteen years ago, MBRP® started in the exhaust business by introducing the B&B Eliminator, a silencer that quickly became the best-selling snow machine muffler of all time. Exhaust system technology being as universal as it is, they soon branched off into cars, Jeeps, and diesel trucks, with amazing success. One of their secrets has been the practice of making as many universal-fit kits as possible. A couple of extra parts in the box means that a single kit might fit a number of different wheelbase pickup trucks, for instance. Reducing complexity in ordering is better for them, better for their distributors, and a great benefit for their customers, who are more likely to be able to find a kit that fits their vehicle on hand. In addition, they go to great lengths to make sure their systems fit properly every time. Careful attention to design and fabrication delivers a system that doesn’t need customization with a hammer to fit properly before the car or truck comes off the lift.
