Can you intercooler a non turbo car?
The need for an intercooler is solely Dependant on the turbo
blowers. As the blowers are pushing more air into the combustion
chamber, the air becomes less dense as it becomes heated through
the movement through the turbos. Intercoolers function to drop the
temperature of incoming air into the turbos so that when the air is
forced into the combustion chamber it is cooler and more dense,
hence, creating a better situation for combustion. As the air is
not being pumped into the combustion chamber and simply aspirating
naturally, there is no need to cool the air before a heating cycle
that isn't present in a non-turbo engine. Intercoolers, however, do
look really awesome.
