Techni-Cooler Intercooler System

What's so special about an intercooler? It's just a ventilated box that cools air coming in from your intake, is there really any reason to go crazy with it? To put it simply, absolutely. Having an awesome intercooler is one of the few ways you can improve your engine's longevity and performance simultaneously, and without having to go through the trouble of modifying your drive-train components.

Installing an intercooler is one of the easiest installs you can do on your diesel pick-up. On the flip side, for every 10 degrees that you lower your intake air temperature, you'll see 1% increase in air density and engine power output. The Banks Power Techni-Cooler typically provides around 13% added air density and 45% boost gain to your turbo, compared to stock. That's a significant improvement! But what about other competitors? Is the Banks Power Techni-Cooler that special?

Banks' Intercooler takes into consideration all the critical variables that your intercooler can affect, unlike most of their competitors. The BD intercooler provides some boost and allows good airflow to pass to the radiator, but air density is actually lost, which results in lowered fuel economy. The Spearco and aFe intercoolers also offers some boost improvements, as well as air density gains. However, both of these intercoolers have poor flow-through, resulting in higher radiator temperatures. Increased radiator temperatures can cause engine damage and also signal your ECU to cut back fuel, making your intercooler modifications virtually useless.

Your Banks Power Techni-Cooler comes designed 23% larger than your stock intercooler, with most of the size increase in the end tanks. The greater air-flow provided through the large end tanks and large intake tubes ensures that your engine will always have enough air, and the more efficient fin design provides cooler/denser air than your stock intercooler can provide. Plus, this beefy intercooler is small enough to stay out of the way, so you can provide the cool air needed to other critical systems. And to top it all off, if Banks makes a performance intake elbow for your make/model pick-up, it will come included with the corresponding Techni-Cooler Kit.

The Banks reputation stands true with their line of Techni-cooler intercoolers - they are the most balanced, reliable, and quality product for their cost. And in some cases, their products are better than much more expensive alternative components. If you have a brain, go with a company that uses their brains. Go with Banks.
