Intercooler Rating System

In the latest episode of the Banks video series “Building a Monster Truck Engine” Gale focuses on intercooler efficiency, introducing us to his patent-pending concept the Intercooler Rating System (I.R.S.) for the iDash 1.8 DataMonster and Super Gauge. This revolutionary way of thinking and collecting data uses sensors and the power of the iDash to accurately measure and record the efficiency of any intercooler, air or liquid-cooled and demonstrates just how chilling the air properly at any boost level produces more power.

Watch as he reviews the dyno results of the Whipple supercharger on the Banks Monster Truck engine run without the intercooler and then with, showcasing the big part that intercooling and density play when making real power and explaining why thinking boost as a performance number is outdated.
