Shop Turbocharger Intercoolers
Chances are if you have a turbocharged diesel engine or high performance engine it will already be fitted with some type of intercooler. At Repco we have some great brands of turbo intercoolers such as Delphi, Valeo, Mahle, OEX, and HCC.
What does a Turbocharger Intercooler do?
An turbo intercooler is a heat exchanger and cools the hot compressed air down to a lower air temperature so cool air goes into the intake manifold of the engine. Any forced induction engine whether supercharged or turbocharged can use an intercooler for increased horsepower. Compressing air causes heat, hot air is not as dense therefore there is less oxygen to burn producing less power. Cooling the compressed air gives a density increase leading to more power.
Why do I need a Turbocharger Intercooler?
There are two main types of intercooler. Air to air intercoolers use air flowing over the intercooler to cool the intake air. Air to water intercoolers use water to cool the intake air. The air to water intercoolers are more efficient than the air to air intercoolers. An air to air intercooler is more light weight than an air to water unit. They both work as heat exchangers.
