Turbonetics Intercooler Kit, 6.5-liter Chevy/GMC/Suburban/Blazer

Tuesday, January 29, 2008 - 01:00
LOS ANGELES - The 6.5 turbo diesel can have the same power enhancing intercooler technology used by nearly all of the big, long-haul, Class-8, 18 wheelers. Intercooling increases power and torque with absolutely no negative impact on engine durability. Once the initial investment is made, the result is a lifetime of free power and improved fuel economy. This intercooler system reduces charge air temperature entering the engine, increasing the air density for increased power and torque, while reducing the overall thermal load on the engine and cooling system as exhaust temperature is reduced as much as 150 degrees Fahrenheit. This results in less transfer of heat to the cooling system and assists in maintaining normal coolant temperature on long hard pulls towing high-grossweight vehicles.

Since the intercooler is mounted between the "frame rail" below and behind the bumper there is no impact on the engine cooling system. Air traveling beneath the vehicle is trapped between the road and the bottom of the intercooler, which gives the intercooler excellent performance even at low vehicle speed. In addition to power and performance, fuel economy is increased as the cooler, denser air creates a leaner air-to-fuel ratio and in conjunction with less heat loss to the cooling system, fuel mileage can increase from 4 to 7 percent depending on driving conditions, weight towed, etc. Approximate installation time is 5 to 7 hours.
