The example above is of a Flex-Fuel WRX before and after a Process West Verticooler was installed! Will an upgraded intercooler help output? The short and simple answer is yes! The more in depth answer is as, yes; because:
Air density increases with cooler charge
Heat dissipation is critical on turbocharged set ups
Increased flow helps increase output
Less flow restriction on charge air
This test was great in the fact that by simply adding an intercooler (and scaling slightly for it) we were able to greatly increase power throughout the power-band. We love that such a simple upgrade can have such a dynamic and drastic effect on a set up. With heat mitigation on everyone’s mind for summer, be sure to check out Process West’s high quality product line!
