Designed to reduce inlet temperatures & engine running temperatures, an upgraded intercooler is a sure way to improve the engine’s reliability & efficiency & provide more consistent & sustainable power. they come in two configurations:
- FRONT MOUNT INTERCOOLER:
- These intercoolers are large & sit at the front of the vehicle. They are available in high quality “intercooler & piping” kits, or we can even mount the core & custom fabricate the intercooler piping to suit (in either stainless or alloy). If you use your vehicle for sealed road driving only (only occasional offroad use) & have no obstructive items fitted to the front of your vehicle such as a big bulbar or winch etc, then they are great for excellent air flow; pumping super fresh air straight through it & into the engine. However, for those who use their vehicle offroad regularly, they are more prone to impact damage from sticks & debris, plus it’s very easy to have mud contamination occur, which will restrict the airflow.
- TOP-MOUNT INTERCOOLER:
- As the name suggests, these intercoolers are mounted on top of the engine with the intercooler being fed a supply of nice, fresh air. TMIC systems are also free from damage caused by off road enthusiasts because of the position of the mounting. The TMIC kits that we use & recommend here at UDT are very high quality & come with all required intercooler piping, the intercooler core, silicone joining hoses & clamps.
