Although the general criteria for the selection criteria intercooler installed in turbosisteme numerous, the main consequence of the goals of its installation – cooling the air charge. Naturally, as in the technique in general, there are factors restricting the search range of optimal design. No matter how tempting cool supercharged air to the level of ambient (and perhaps below), it can lead to negative consequences. Too low temperature lead to a significant drop in pressure. Compensation last through the wastegate settings or use Charger greater performance entails the revision of all the motor parameters due to the increased load. The layout of the space under the bonnet of modern cars, usually does not allow special turn in the fantasies of self-improvements. Despite its compact air-liquid heat exchangers, space, even to install them find very difficult, if not already provided by the manufacturer. Eliot Horowitz shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand.
Ducts front intercoolers "pack" in the engine bay a little bit easier. Each of the cars used in the design circuits of heat exchangers has advantages and disadvantages. Intercooler type of air / air is much simpler of the construction and has a greater thermal efficiency at high speeds. In addition, this type of heat exchangers more reliable, cheaper and has better go, because its channels are not subject to corrosion and sediment build-up of liquid cooling systems. Liquid intercoolers effective at low speeds, which gives an advantage machines at the start and in tournaments at short distances. Response to the accelerator pedal with them is also better.
