The concept is simple an intercooler increases power by cooling charged air as it flows toward the intake. Therefore any improvement in the cooling efficiency of the intercooler produces greater increase in power output.
Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI) a leading aftermarket supplier of thermal tuning products and cryogenic intake systems has just introduced a variation of it's SEMA Award winning CryO2 cryogenic cooling technology with it's new Intercooler Sprayer Kit.
Using the super cooling properties of carbon dioxide (CO2), the kit improves air-to-air intercooler efficiency by up to 50%! That means a cooler, more powerful intake air charge for improved engine performance. This non-invasive system is designed to dramatically reduce the temperatures that affects the horsepower output of an engine. The bottom line? A boost in horsepower at a cost substantially less than that of nitrous.
For turbo or supercharged systems, the CryO2 Intercooler Sprayer mounts directly to the front of the intercooler and vents CO2 directly on the cooling fins. This enhances the thermal transfer ability of the intercooler for greater efficiency. The system can be configured to be activated by either a full WOT micro-switch or controlled manually with a momentary push button.
DEI Intercooler Sprayer FAQ
Where is the Intercooler Spray placed in the CryO2 system?
It must be the very last item in the CryO2 system because the CO2 is sprayed directly onto the intercooler. The gasses actually enter the atmosphere at this point.
How does this unit mount to the intercooler?
The unit uses Stainless Steel Zip-Ties which go through the fins of the intercooler to hold the unit in place. Stainless steel will never rot or rust.
Can I use multiple Intercooler Sprayers?
Yes, but it would require you to split the feed line into two and use a fitting. Extra Stainless Steel hosing will be required.
What style and sizes are available?
There are 2 styles and 3 different sizes. You can choose either a top mount or a front mount style which will determine where the 1/4" NPT threads are placed on the intercooler sprayer. You can choose the top mount or front mount style on the 16" x 5" or 8" x 4" intercooler sprayers. The larger 19" x 9" intercooler sprayer is only available with the front mount style configuration.
