Power Cooler

Tune Serv uses Dastek’s Power Cooler

The Power Cooler can reduce the in-take air temperature by as much as 70% which vastly improves not only power and torque, but reliability as well as:

  • Optimurn Power & Torque
  • ŸSmoothness in Driveability
  • ŸExcellent Value for Money Ÿ
  • Standard Service Schedules
  • ŸImproved Fuel Consumption
  • ŸImproved Engine Durability
  • ŸLower Engine Operating Temperatures Ÿ
  • Greater Towing & Overtaking Ability

 

What is a Power Cooler?

An intercooler is recognised as a fundamental of a turbocharger system. It never has been, nor should ever be, considered icing on cake. A proper intercooler is more cake. The intercooler is a radiator - or, more correctly, heat exchanger - positioned between the turbo and the intake manifold. Its sole purpose get the heat out of the intake charge that turbo put into the charge while compressing it.

Removing heat from the intake charge has two huge areas of merit. First, the reduction of temperature. Denser intake charges make more power. Second, but no less important, is terrific benefit to the combustion process brought about by reduced temperatures in the intake charge. Detonation is reduced by any reduction in intake temperatures. These two areas of merit are the reasons a proper intercooler can increase the power and marginof safety of the turbocharged engine.

 

Dastek’s Power Cooler
Power and torque of an engine are directly proportional to the amount of air entering the combustion chamber if mixed with the right amount of fuel. By lowering the charge air temperature with an intercooler it results in a higher mass of air entering the combustion chamber. This will give an increase in power and torque if the vehicle is tuned correctly. A good intercooler package can increase the power by as much as 30% when fitted to a non-intercooled turbo vehicle.
