Intercooler by Spectra Premium®. The intercooler cools the compressed air from the supercharger or turbocharger to create a denser air intake charge and more efficient combustion. This intercooler features superior bar & plate vacuum brazed and welded aluminum construction, enabling it to withstand higher pressures and temperatures.

Turbochargers and superchargers provide the forced air induction that increases power on many gasoline and most diesel engines. Unfortunately compressing air also raises its temperature. The intercooler is positioned between the turbocharger/supercharger and engine air intake to cool the incoming charge, producing denser intake air that improves combustion efficiency for more power and prevents detonation that could cause engine damage. A damaged intercooler could restrict air intake flow and/or provide insufficient cooling that could result in decreased power and engine damage. When you need a replacement intercooler, your best choice is Spectra Premium.
The core of this product is assembled from component tubes, fins and internal fins. This assembly is then vacuum brazed together forming a single piece core. The resulting vacuum brazed all aluminum construction is tremendously strong due to the reinforcement provided by the external and internal fins. After the product is assembled and brazed, the end tanks (or manifolds) are welded on to the core. The welding process provides a means of attachment which is as strong as the aluminum itself. The fins are designed to trip the boundary layer of the air flow over them reducing the thickness of the boundary layer and enhancing heat transfer. With anti-corrosive coating, this intercooler will bring you long-lasting durability while providing reliable performance.
