BladeRunner Turbocharger Intercooler with Tubes and Intake Manifold (45-24001) by aFe®. Includes: 3" Hot Side, 3" Cold Side Tubes with Hardware. Inlet: Slip Fit. Outlet: Slip Fit. Plate Size: 3.15". The BladeRunner Intercooler will increase airflow to your engine and reduce intake air temperature, improving combustion and increasing horsepower and torque. aFe uses MDV technology to improve airflow through the cooler, making heat transfer more effective. The bar and plate core design also allows for greater airflow and increased heat dissipation when compared to the factory tube and fin core design.
- MDV technology forms multiple air paths for overall increased airflow
- Bar and plate core design improves airflow and heat dissipation versus tube and fin core design
- Bar and plate core larger than stock and many competitors
- Reduces intake air temperature by as much as 200º
- Reduces Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) by as much as 100º
- 100% TIG welded
- Includes ports for nitrous injection, gauges, and other auxiliary input options
- Includes everything required for installation
- Backed by a limited 2-year warranty
When you want to increase the performance of your diesel truck, don't waste your time and money modifying your factory intercooler. The aFe BladeRunner intercooler is the best you can buy. It's bar and plate core design allows greater airflow and increased heat dissipation compared to the much smaller tube and fin designs used by the OE manufacturers. But that's only the beginning of the story.
While competitors rely only on thicker cores or a larger inlet and outlet to increase flow, aFe uses their exclusive Multiple Directional Vane (MDV) technology to increase airflow and heat dissipation. The MDV directional vanes direct airflow along the tank so that air flows across the full face of the intercooler. With airflow across the intercooler, heat transfer is more effective, with resulting lower air temperature. Without MDV, air just flows along the most direct path between the inlet and outlet, and the full face of the intercooler is not used.
The BladeRunner intercooler is 100% TIG welded by certified craftsmen for strength and durability. It's test pressure rated at 200psi, which is perfect for high boost applications. Four pre-tapped 1/8” ports are included for nitrous oxide systems, gauges or other applications.
Your BladeRunner intercooler comes complete with everything needed for installation, including comprehensive instructions. It's backed by a limited 2-year warranty.
