The addition of a GReddy intercooler is one of the best ways to safely increase horsepower in a turbocharged engine. By reducing the engine's inlet temperatures, a denser air charge will enter the engine; this can make more horsepower at the same boost level and even more power at higher boost levels. These are an ideal upgrade as the standard side mount intercoolers is far from ideal for increased boost levels. This kits include all the necessary mounts, piping and hoses required to install the kit. All kits are designed with specific cores to provide an ideal compromise of cooling and flow, with the added benefit of style. This is achieved by finding an ideal position and configuration for a wide range of boost levels. Our engineers properly size the number of rows in the core and tune the internal core. All cores are of a lightweight air-to-air, tube and fin design. The high efficiency tube design allows smooth ambient flow for optimum heat dissipation and flow to engine cooling systems unlike typical heavy bar and plate types that disturb ambient flow like a wall, or wing shaped tubes types which flow ambient air so fast there is little time for heat transfer. GReddy intercoolers offer the perfect balance of heat exchanging efficiency and flow. The ends of the cores are TIG-welded and capped off with our smooth flowing heavy-duty cast aluminum GReddy endtanks. Light-weight mandrel bent aluminum piping and/or cast aluminum elbows, complete with hose cuplers, are used to route air charge smoothly to and from the intercooler.
This is a GReddy R- SPL core which features a high heat-dissipating "Inner fin" design. This is ideal for medium to high boost levels on higher horsepower or upgraded turbo engines. The larger internal surface area provides superior cooling efficiency for radiating excessive heat and minimizing heat soak.
