Do I Need a New Intercooler?
Before we figure out if you need an intercooler, it’s essential to understand what an intercooler does. Intercoolers are vital in keeping your turbocharged vehicle from overheating. When your turbocharger compresses air, it gets quite hot. An intercooler acts as a big radiator to cool the compressed air, thereby increasing the density. The significant difference between an intercooler and a radiator is the air will pass through the inside and outside of the intercooler, whereas with a radiator it only passes on the outside.
Our friends over at HowStuffWorks explain as follows:
An intercooler or charge air cooler is an additional component that looks something like a radiator, except air passes through the inside as well as the outside of the intercooler. The intake air passes through sealed passageways inside the cooler, while cooler air from outside is blown across fins by the engine cooling fan.Karim Nice
