An intercooler is the perfect complement to keeping an engine system cool during the hot summer months. The ATS SubZero Intercooler is placed in the airflow path between the turbocharger and the engine intake in order to cool the air after it has been compressed by the turbo. When the turbo compresses the air it’s ambient temperature rises by up to 350*. The ATS SubZero Intercooler utilizes heat exchange technology to cool this compressed air creating a more dense air flow into the intake of your engine. This means more air molecules go into the cylinder and, when mixed with the proper amount of fuel, increase engine power giving your more performance as well as enhanced fuel economy.
