This Front Mounted Air to Air Intercooler (FMIC) is designed to fit 2007-2011 Stage 1 GEN2 Supercharger kits using the Diablo Sport Tuning and larger primary injectors. This converts the the GEN1 to the GEN2 supercharger kit.
Turbochargers and superchargers are engineered to force more air mass into an engine's intake manifold and combustion chamber. Intercooling is a method used to compensate for heating caused by supercharging, a natural byproduct of the semi-adiabatic compression process. Increased air pressure can result in an excessively hot intake charge, significantly reducing the performance gains of supercharging due to decreased density. Increased intake charge temperature can also increase the cylinder combustion temperature, causing detonation, excessive wear, or heat damage to an engine block.
