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!
ABOUT WAGNER TUNING
Founded in 1993 in Germany, the company started off as a speed shop in 2007 and transformed into a manufacturing and designing shop for intercoolers, down-pipes, intakes and exhaust manifolds. With the business doing great in Germany and the high demand for products here in the states, they decided to open up a US office located in California to stock products reducing delivery times.
Using only the best technology to design products, the Faro 7axis scan arm with laser scanner and stratasys rapid prototype printer and the latest cad & fem Software is utilized to develop quality products. This way every product design is 100% accurate on fitment and allows the largest inter-coolers that can fit without major modifications to your vehicle. Product development is performed here in the states with complete in house design and engineering capabilities.
Product comes with a 2-year manufacturers limited warranty.
