Get the Turbine's Real Power and Increase Engine Torque!
All HKS Intercoolers improve both the efficiency and power of any turbocharged application by rapidly reducing inherent heat levels of the compressed intake air charge before entering the engine. By utilizing a special tube and fin design, the intercooler acts as a large heat exchanger that dissipates the heat generated by the compression of the intake charge without creating reductions in boost pressure or response.
Cooling Efficiency vs. Pressure Loss
Cooling Efficiency Improvement = Torque Increase
The cooling efficiency of an intercooler is affected by many factors including the frontal surface area of the core, cooling fin design and air flow through and over the core. HKS has increased the size of the core over stock to increase the air flow over the core. New type cooling fin now offers improved heat radiation. Core end tanks have been designed to flow the compressed air evenly across the whole intercooler core. All these factors will maximize reduction of intake air temperature which increases air density. Increasing the range of fueling and ignition setting making it possible to deliver more power and torque.
【R TYPE INTERCOOLER】
R TYPE is designed for circuit use; ideal to use with a stock replacement type turbine to wastegate type large size turbine. This intercooler derives better turbine performance regardless the engine rpm during driving on a straight track and acceleration after cornering. The weight is approximately 25% lighter than a conventional product. (In-house comparison).
* R Type AL is aluminum polished piping type.
(1) Inner Fin (triangular straight type)
Triangular straight type for less pressure loss of air flow.
(2) Outer Fin (triangular louver type)
Like S TYPE, Triangular louver type for outer fin.
