The main purpose of a performance intercooler is to significantly reduce the temperature of the air that enters into the vehicle's engine as it drives along. The heat produced in the engine as it raves on, has long been known to compromise the performance of any motorized vehicle, and engineers of many generations have spent thousands of hours to study and solve this problem. When the engine is heated, the air passing through the intercooler contracts as it goes through the intercooler's vanes, where it is cooled down by the external air that also passes through the vanes. The intercooler uses the external cold air to lower down the temperature of the vehicle and with its help, the vehicle becomes more environment-friendly, as its horsepower is also significantly boosted to a great extent.
Generally, factory intercoolers are not designed to handle the higher levels of boost that comes with an upgrade intercooler system. In order to get the best results of a turbo intercooler upgrade, one requires a matching intercooler kit, and this is where the Mishimoto intercooler kits step into the limelight to provide instant and long-lasting solution to this problem. Dedicated not only to quality and precision tuning, but also to superior looking product for every auto enthusiast, it is true that Mishimoto has gone out of its way to ensure that you get only the best upgrade intercooler kit in the market. Over the years, Mishimoto engineers have seen many flows in competing intercooling kits and not only found solutions for them, but also perfected the art to produce much better quality and performance intercooler kits.
By utilizing computational fluid dynamics software, Mishimoto engineers were able to create an intercooler kit that maximizes air flaw and greatly minimizes turbulence. They can therefore handle very high horsepower while maintaining sleek, high-performance, universal front-mount shape and size. They are made out of 6061 Aluminum with precision TIG welding, providing the ideal cooling capacity for any small or large turbo application. It is important to note that, unlike many other aftermarket intercooler kits available out there, modifications to the front bumper and removal of the crash bar are not necessary at all, since the Mishimoto intercoolers retain the OEM fitments of these parts.
