  • intercooler litre capacity?

    anyone know the litre capacity of these intercoolers?

    courts/vxpc one
    tms front mount one
    tms new evo style one
    regal - 8 litres

    can someone go to www.regal-shop.co.uk and have a look at their vxr blizzard one and comment on it for me as it looks fairly sound

    what is the advantage for having an intercooler with diagonal inlet and outlet for air charge as opposed to those that have entry and exit on same level ? not sure bout thorneys new one to come but only two with diagonal charge set up seem to be courts/vxpc one and regals

      I think I'd be more interested in surface area / cooling efficiency than size of the cooler.

        im going for courts one but im just inquisitive, like to look at them all really as thorneys one is not diagonal entry and exit for air charge and just dont know the benefit

          The total capacity of the IC is meaningless, people just quote it as it makes it simple but personally its a daft number and about as useful as quoting your favourite colour when describing your favourite car.

          Things to consider:

          1. Is it in direct airflow or not
          2. Core density
          3. Core surface area
          4. Relationship of core density/surface area
          5. THickenss of core
          6. Airflow entry/exit
          7. Angle of pipework entry/exit
          8. Distance of airflow pipework

          There is no one easy answer to say x is better than y, its a combination of all the above that measures the IC in terms of quality.
