Intercoolers: A New Business Opportunity

Intercooler technology is growing at a rapid rate, with now half of all new vehicles this year fitted with an intercooler at manufacture. As the number one worldwide OEM supplier of intercooler products, Valeo is now increasing its range of references available to the UK aftermarket.

Valeo Service has over 160 part numbers, with 92 new this year covering the majority of the UK car parc.Typical popular applications include the Mondeo 2.0 TDCI 00>03, Audi A3 1.9 TDI 00>, Golf/Bora 1.9 TDI 00>05, and more recent launches of the Peugeot 308 1.6 HDI 16v and 1.6 THP 07>.


Intercooler facts:

  • The turbocharger increases power and torque (+25%) but an increase in the temperature of the air within the intake manifold limits the power yield
  • The intercooler reduces the temperature of the air in the intake manifold from 130 degrees to 60 degrees, removing the negative effects of the turbo and increases the power (+20%)
  • There are three types of intercooler design – compact, surface and mosaic - and the type used depends on its location in the vehicle
