What is an intercooler?
Well, we’re glad you asked! As you may know (or have
guessed), an intercooler is a device that’s used to cool air for supercharged
or turbocharged engines. The device is placed in the path of air that goes from
the supercharger or turbocharger to the motor. This will cool the compressed air
by reducing its temperature which then increases its density.
How Does This Device Help?
Now that you know what this object is used for, you’re
probably wondering how it helps your vehicle and its engine. Many people wonder
why it matters whether the air that’s going into their engine is hot or cold.
There are two primary reasons why:
Cold air is denser than hot air, so there will be more
oxygen going into your engine when the air is cooler. Since there’s more air
and oxygen, your motor will be able to produce more power.
Hot air can cause a higher cylinder temperature in your
vehicle which could cause detonation. Using this device and other cooling
upgrades can help prevent that.
How Do Intercoolers Work?
The air that’s compressed by a supercharger or turbocharger
tends to get hot very quickly. As the temperature increases, the density of the
air decreases, which isn’t good for a car’s engine. So, we use Ford Focus ST
intercoolers to cool the air, allowing air that’s denser and more oxygen-rich into
the engine, which then allows more fuel to be burned more efficiently. This
improves the combustion of your vehicle and gives it more power. It will also
increase the reliability of your car because it provides a more consistent
temperature of air into the motor, and so the air fuel ratio will remain at a
steady and safe level.
Where Should You Place Your
The best spot to put your Ford Focus ST Intercooler is in
the path of the airflow. In many cases, that place will be in front of the radiator
that’s in front of your vehicle. Some of the cooling upgrades that we sell can
decrease the air going into your car’s engine by 100 or even 150 degrees!
That’s what we call some pretty “cool” enhancements.
Once you find an intercooler or another cooling upgrade that
works best for you and your vehicle, you can take a look around at some of our
other accessories. We have plenty of incredible enhancements including
Focus ST Turboback Exhausts to offer excellent
Focus ST Sway Bars to reduce understeer, Ford Focus ST Drivetrains, and more. Browse
