Does your vehicle have a turbo? Then an intercooler is indispensable. Fortunately MasterTurbo has a large range of high quality products in this group. In this blog we will discuss the intercooler, the most common damages and repairs and the NRF brand.
An intercooler is usually found behind the front bumper under the radiator. The intercooler and the turbo are two engine components that are related to each other. Air is sent from the combustion engine with turbo to the intake manifold, where the pressure ensures that more air enters the combustion chamber. More fuel can then be injected, giving the engine higher power and better combustion.
The intercooler serves as a heat exchanger. Compressing the air has the disadvantage that the temperature rises, which changes the density and causes poorer combustion. The cooling of the intercooler creates shrinkage, allowing more air to be pumped into the combustion chamber.
Intercoolers are vulnerable to stone chippings and dirt, which can cause leaks. An intercooler can also become clogged. The cause of a clogged or dirty intercooler can be a faulty turbo assembly, oil contamination or foreign particles. These problems can cause even worse damage such as leakage or damage to the turbo.
If an intercooler is damaged or defective, it should be completely replaced to prevent further damage and repairs. When replacing a defective or broken turbo, it is therefore always important to check the intercooler for any defects. Our specialists will help you find the right intercooler for your application and turbo.
