Test results carried out at AmD Tuning rolling road.
Intercoolers being testing for ACT (Air Charge Temperature)
Standard Intercooler (Stage 1 remap).
Average air temperature into intercooler: 115 degrees
Average air temp out of intercooler: 69 degrees
That’s an average 49 degree drop, but anything over 50 degrees engine intake temperature is not good for the engine.
AIRTEC Intercooler (Stage 1 remap)
Average air temp into Intercooler. 84 degrees
Average air temp out of Intercooler. 36 degrees
The AIRTEC intercooler was seeing an average of 36 degrees with an increase of around 17bhp.
The test shows with a basic Stage 1 remap, you can gain power with just having a AIRTEC intercooler.
With having an AIRTEC intercooler fitted and keeping air temperatures down means a proven increase in power.
