All our intercoolers are designed to fit your needs. Every design is developed & modeled In CAD. End tank material is then machined on our in house CNC equipment for a precise 1:1 replica.
Our intercoolers have two key features that you won't find in the common intercooler:
1. Internal diverter design.
What that means is, internally. There are 1-3 internal plates that split the incoming airflow across the entire surface area of the core. This allows the intercooler to fully cool all incoming airflow efficiently without heat soaking in one area also helping reduce turbulent air conditions.
The image below is a prime example of what I'm explaining.
Rule number 1: Airflow travels the path of least resistance and in this example. Both the inlet and outlet are at the bottom of the core and that is the path of least resistance.
This results in the core heat soaking which is terrible for performance. Air wants to stay dense, Denser the air - more power you will make. It's that simple. This is primarily the reason why water to air coolers are used.
Everyone worries about core & fin design. As that does matter, there are other factors as well.
Here is another prime example of the before and after of which I speak.
2. Internal velocity plates.
Our cores feature two .25" Thick Billet 6061 velocity plates. These plates eliminate the brick wall of an intercoolers design allowing airflow to stabilize prior to entering the core fins drastically increasing air velocity which increases throttle response.
3. Inlet & outlet Velocity stacks
Depending on the specific design of the intercooler core having a velocity stack on both the Inlet & outlet can be beneficial in air velocity. Air dislikes taking a hard left or right turn + walls. It enjoys radiused edges and smooth transitions to help smooth an funnel airflow preventing turbulent airflow.
Back door style endtanks suffer the worst by this. One way to help fight this issue with a back door style tank is to radius the front portion of the tank. This helps the airflow move smoothly to the back door but it's still hitting a wall without a velocity stack thus killing airspeed.
