BD 1042700 Cool It Intercooler Upgrade
An replacement intercooler upgrade like this one from BD Diesel can give you much cooler and denser air into the engine. If you tow heavy or in high elevations then this kit is can benefit you. Larger capacity for air and larger cooling surface areas provide a better thermal efficiency than the factory intercooler. A drop in EGT of up to 300 degrees can be seen.
This intercooler from BD increases power and efficiency of the radiator and air conditioning heat exchangers. Designed and tested at 100+ psi turbo boost pressure and 500F turbo outlet temperatures. The extra thick cast end tanks and support struts have integrity and long life without ballooning and cracking. Stuffed Tube designs are commonly used on stock applications with boost pressures of 20-40 psi and 200-300F inlet temperatures. The tubes have a thin wall and 82% heat conductivity transfer. Higher boost pressures and temperatures will cause breaking of fin-to-wall welds resulting in tubes ballooning and reduced heat transfer.
Micro Extruded Tube design is for applications producing 20-100 psi of boost pressure and inlet temperatures of 500+F. The tubes have a 0.025 wall thickness and designed enhanced inner fins that add to performance and already strong support structure resulting in a 95% heat conductivity transfer. No cracking or separation occurred when tested at over 400 psi. The lower the turbo boost pressure drop across the CAC (inlet vs. outlet) the higher the volume flow the more volume of air that can flow through the CAC and the higher the turbo boost pressure will result in lower exhaust gas temperatures (EGT).
