Banks Sidewinder Jeep Turbo system - INTERCOOLED!

Over the weekend, we had our first chance to test the intercooled Sidewinder Jeep Turbo. Even in prototype form and running 6.5 psi boost, the Air-to-Water intercooler setup demonstrated the ability to keep intake manifold air temperatures in check. After operating the Jeep all day with heavy off-road abuse, intake manifold air temperatures were below that of what the stock naturally aspirated Jeep sees. This is exciting for many reasons. The lower air temperatures mean more density and more power. Lower air temperature in general will reduce knock sensitivity meaning safer engine operation and more ignition timing. This increases power and efficiency.

With all the positive data we collected over the weekend, we are excited to proceed with the development of this kit. So keep your eyes peeled for more news as this product develops!
