FAQ about aluminum intercooler.
Q: Does one style core cool better than another?
No, almost no difference. With three decades of testing
intercooler’s, we have found no appreciable difference between any
core style or manufacturer. Keep in mind, that the merit of a core
is it’s efficiency versus its internal drag characteristics. When
sized for a tolerable flow loss, virtually all cores will produce
essentially the same efficiency results. Perhaps a core with
slightly less flow area per linear inch, or one with longer tubes,
will need perhaps 5% more tubes to equal the best of intercooler’s
with regard to flow loss and efficiency. Not a very important
Q: What are the variations in core construction used in intercoolers?
The variations are in the style of manufacture of the core
material. A “Bar and Plate”-Style Core is made by brazing up a
layered structure of flat plates separated by small rectangular
spacers. A “Tube and Flange”-Style Core is created by extending a
series of tubes through a header flange and brazing the assembly
together. For heavy duty applications, pressure spikes up to 250
psig and rugged environments, ”Solid Extruded Tube”-Style Cores are
Water to air means better engine cooling.
Many people who try to road race with a front mount intercooler
have overheating problems because the air going to the radiator has
to pass through the hot intercooler first. With a water to air
setup, you have far more flexible options. The core will probably
be in the engine bay, and the radiator can be mounted in the trunk,
under the car, or in some applications a radiator is not even
When it comes to turbocharged or supercharged engines, running on
gasoline dictates that an intercooler will almost certainly be part
of the equation. But what an intercooler actually does, and how to
determine what parts you’d need for a build can sometimes be a bit
of a mystery.
At its essence, an intercooler is a heat exchanger. In an
air-to-water intercooler, the heat exchange occurs between the air
coming in and the water flowing through the intercooler–the heat
from your charge pipes is transferred to the water, and cooler and
denser air is sent through the other side. One of the key benefits
to this type of design is that, unlike air-to-air intercoolers, an
air-to-water intercooler can be mounted virtually anywhere along
the charge piping route, provided there’s a means to send water to
and from it.

Some Water to Air Intercoolers that you can buy online do not
contain true water to air cores. A true water to air core has water
passages that are much smaller than the air passages. This is part
of what allows the water to air intercooler to be so small and have
such low pressure drop. Some water to air intercoolers that you buy
online use an air to air core design where the air passages for
ambient air and intake air are the same size, with an enormous loss
of efficiency. Buy from us to make sure that you get a genuine
water to air intercooler core!
