Now that we had all of our kits developed, the project is complete, right? Wrong! We haven’t tested this intercooler out yet! Now, we have conducted a ton of CFD and core research which has provided us with a very high probability of success. However, we believe in testing all of our products to provide real-world data that our customers can use to base their purchasing decisions on. This product is going to present some challenges for data presentation. Enthusiasts upgrading to a front-mount intercooler have such a variance in modifications and power output that it is very difficult to provide data that will apply to everyone. Our plan is to evaluate the efficiency of the cooler on a mildly built vehicle. This efficiency can then be used to analyze the results of this cooler on a variety of vehicles running different boost pressures, turbochargers, engine internal modifications and tunes.

Check back with us next time for information and images from testing!
