Technical Support

At Bell Intercoolers we understand that while the basic concept of intercooling is fairly straightforward, there are areas of theory and execution where even the most seasoned veteran could use some expert advice to create the best intercooler system for their application.

Intercooler FAQs

What is the purpose and/or advantage of an intercooler?

The purpose of the intercooler is to remove the heat in the air charge that the turbo/supercharger puts into the charge when compressing it. There are two advantages: Reducing the heat in the air charge increases the charge density (more molecules of air per cubic foot), thus increasing the potential for making more power.

Is some intercooling better than no intercooling?

No. It depends on the design of the intercooler, and there are two factors involved; efficiency (how much heat is removed) and the flow restriction (lost pressure) created by the presence of the intercooler.

How does the intercooler affect the power output of the engine?

Power is dependent on the density of the air charge. By decreasing the temperature the intercooler increases air charge density, therefore, the power is increased.
