Evo X Intercooler Piping
The intercooler piping is an important part of your turbo system, often being restrictive especially if you've upgraded your intercooler core to a larger size. Intercooler piping is typically made of stainless steel or aluminum and is mandrel bent to allow for the best air flow possible.
Upper and Lower Pipes
There are two pieces of the system to consider when talking about intercooler piping. The upper piping feeds charged air from the turbo's compressor housing to the intercooler to be cooled, which then goes through the lower piping and back into the engine at a much lower temperature to allow for better combustion. This cycle continues back out to the turbine housing, which in turn spins the compressor wheel bringing in more fresh air... you can see where this is going.
What are the options?
Most intercooler piping can be purchased either polished, with a brushed finish, or powercoated n different colors. You can also chose from many different colors of silicone couplers to keep your piping connected securely. Brands such as MAPerformance, ETS, Mishimoto and Squirrelly are well know for offering high quality piping and couplers for your Evo X.
