Unitronic's bar and plate intercooler core is constructed of T5052 Aluminum featuring a unique staggered and louvered fin configuration to maximize efficiency, significantly reducing charge air temperatures allowing for cooler, more dense air to be ingested by the engine; ultimately resulting in an increase in engine performance. When intake air temperatures reach a specific threshold, the engine control unit begins to compensate to account for the air temperature, resulting in a decrease in performance. Unitronic's core has over 80% more volume than stock measuring 20.5" x 4" x 8" (OEM Intercooler dimensions are 26" x 2.5" x 5.5") allowing for a greater volume of air to exchange heat, which, combined with a proper fin configuration, allows for maximum efficiency and reduction in heat-soak thresholds without producing a significant pressure drop.
Entering and exiting the core is an important aspect and should not be forgotten about. With implications regarding airflow as well as fitment, the end tanks are also somethonaling that Unitronic went through many working prototypes and production samples prior to it being approved for production. UUnitronic's T6061 cast Aluminum end tanks are designed with tolerances of +/- 0.020" to ensure perfect fitment across all of our production units, paying very close attention to its multiple OEM mounting points with the OEM constraints. Inlet and outlet design has also been optimized to ensure smooth airflow through the unit.
