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.
Yes and No. Intercoolers cool air that is compressed in a turbo. You can setup an intercooler on a non turbo car and have it connected to the air intake and such... .....it will rob you of horsepower by sending air through a lot of unnecessary tubes.
A car can run with out an intercooler, but if it was designed to have an intercooler, the driveabilty will be affected.
I suspect one will be an intercooler for the turbo
The normal direction of airflow is air filter to turbo, to intercooler, to engine.The normal direction of airflow is air filter to turbo, to intercooler, to engine.
If your boosting any car. What you need is the: -Turbo -turbo mani -oil feed -oil dran -oil flanges -exhaust flanges -injectors -intercooler -intercooler piping -BOV -WG -tuned ECU
im not sure what u mean...but i guess u mean is it better to run intercooler with your turbo setup on a particular engine...yes the intercooler will aid in cooling drastically over a non intercooled engine...think of it as a/c or non a/c in your house u want the cold cold air if possible
Buy a turbo
It isn't really necessary. All an intercooler does (besides cooling a turbo unit so it doesn't overheat) is cool down the air going into the engine. The air only needs to be cooled because it passes by the hot engine and through a hot turbo. in a car without a turbo, all there is to warm up the air is the engine, so you want to get the air from as far away from the engine as possible. The answer is a cold air intake. These are much cheaper than intercoolers and much simpler.
To cool the compressed air from the turbo
No, there is no reason for it. In turbo cars you have intercooler pipes that need pressure released at certain times. You have no intercooler in non-turbo cars. I guess you could install one if you wanted to look silly, but it wouldn't serve any purpose or be functional. I hear you can get a fake bov that makes the sound, if that's what you are looking for.
If it is, there'll be a turbocharger in the engine compartment.
There will always be some oil in the intercooler. Part of the emissions system connects the engine breather to the airbox. As the turbo sucks air through the airbox it tends to suck some oil into the intercooler.
The answer is yes, you would have to buy the correct turbo kit (turbo, oil lines, turbo exhaust manifold, intercooler, piping, etc) and tuning software (DSMlink). It is a good bit of work if you are not experienced with cars and building them. To turbo a non turbo car is is important to make sure the engine can handle it and SHOULD be rebuilt properly to ensure that it will last. If you are serious about this than I suggest reading up on dsmtalk.com and dsmtuners.com both are forums about everything 4G63 and even the 420a engines (non turbo'd eclipse/talon 1995-1999)
this sounds alot like a turbo failure, although there could well be a leak in the pipes leading from the turbo to the intercooler, or from the intercooler to the inlet manifold. also check the intercooler for leaks. or it is the vacuum pipe that operates the waste gate on the turbo, or a seized waste gate.
Whatever the intercooler is for (transmission, turbo, etc), will most likely overheat and do some damage.
If the car is the same as in it came out of a non-turbo and your putting it in a non-turbo it will work but if it came out of a non-turbo and your putting it in a turbo then it won't work. If it came out of a turbo and your putting it in a non-turbo it won't work. If it came out of a turbo and your putting in a turbo then it will work.
make sure you have not blow your turbo. If you did not blow the turbo you might have put a hole into the intercooler. This will cause you to use a ton of gas
Turbo Charged Intercooler
Yeah...I guess you could say that. If you break a blade in a turbocharger, the out-of-balance condition will cause the turbo to self-destruct. Said exploding turbo will take out your intercooler too.
Yes, this is possible. However, it involves a significant amount of components and systems not currently in the non-turbo car and it is generally easier, less expensive and more reliable to purchase the turbo car (if one is available).
yes that's why you should get a turbo
