HOW AN INTERCOOLER ENHANCES PERFORMANCE
Have you noticed how your Turbo engine seems more powerful and responsive in cold weather? As the inlet temperature is reduced, the air becomes 'more dense' packing a greater number of O2 molecules, which results in a more powerful combustion.
This nets more horsepower to the wheels. Now you can have similar performance even on warmer sunny days with this intercooler upgrade.
THE FINE DETAILS OF INTERCOOLER PERFORMANCE UPGRADE
Technically, the Intercooler upgrade does not 'add' horsepower, but it reduces the losses which results in a net power gain at the wheels. The engine basically 'retains' the horsepower normally lost to high inlet temperatures.
The difference is pronounced on warmer days where normally, the car would feel 'sluggish'. If you live in colder climates (ex. Alaska) - this may not be a cost-effective upgrade. But if you have warm climate or hot summers, it's worth it!
