In­ter­cool­ers – another great al­ter­na­tive

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - TECHNICAL -

Apart from changes in en­gine pa­ram­e­ters via remap­ping or chip­ping, there are other ways to safely en­hance diesel en­gine per­for­mance, and mit­i­gate the po­ten­tial risks. Pro­vid­ing cooler air to the com­bus­tion process is one im­prove­ment that can be achieved by sim­ply us­ing a bet­ter, larger in­ter­cooler. Cooler in­take air leads to bet­ter per­for­mance, but can also re­duce en­gine tem­per­a­tures. In TdV6 Dis­cov­ery 3 TdV6 ve­hi­cles, the stan­dard in­ter­cooler is par­tic­u­larly small, and in­take air tem­per­a­ture can de­crease by as much as 20° C or more when fit­ting an af­ter­mar­ket in­ter­cooler that is around thrice the size of the stan­dard unit.
