Not a big fan of 0-100 timings. Specially on these diesels which redline at 4500 and bucket loads of torque at launch doesn't always give you a launch without wheelspin. And before you know, you ought to shift. Damn these diesel redlines.

I think what we all ought to focus more on is the in gear accelerations and how safe this car feels at the top end. Therein, lies its forte.

Either way. It would be nice to see what timings this thing is putting out, in comparison to the stock Elantra CRDi.

Nice pics - actually after seeing the pics, maybe I should call you Sir. just kidding.

Where is this location?

Hey Raj what tyres do you use and i remember you recommending some box parallel to petes. Can you post the differences in the specs and performance of these two boxes?
Are there any meets coming up soon :P please do tell me.


Cheers/Shyam

@ShyamSCrdi - In gear acceleration has definitely increased and its fun to drive.

@crazydiablo - Its a PWR custom intercooler.

Copy and pasting reviews which we had made it in another thread.

Its really nice to drive after the intercooler upgrade. While there is no real increase in 1/4 mile timings, there is so much more torque earlier in the rev range. The turbo lag is completely gone, and there is ZERO diesel clatter. Guys not in the know would easily bet it is a petrol if you are sitting inside the car.

And the lack of improvement in quarter mile times can be attributed to the fact that the car is almost impossible to launch. Even if it is soft launched at 2000 rpm, the wheels spin like 2-3 seconds before the new PP2s on that car find traction. All with TCS on.

The engine feels like it is lazily spinning away, compared to the cars with the stock inter cooler. And if it is making extra power, maybe a wee bit, but nothing significant. You could also say the engine is developing lot more power in the lower range of the rev band, and correspondingly less in the upper part of the rev band. Prompted me to think that maybe such a large intercooler needs to be paired with a slightly large turbo so that it can feed the engine in the higher reaches of that tiny rev band. Of course, since this is less theory and more practice, will never know until we try that one.

So even though we know the power gains might not be much, most of us still want to do this mod as this takes the refinement of that engine into the league of the German diesels, maybe even a tad better than that.

The new larger intercooler also resulted in a pressure drop of around 2 PSI. To really reap the benefits of this one, I guess it needs a slightly larger turbo.

and finally with Greddy electronic boost controller (waste gate is adjusted 15-21 PSI) its a different animal.

I learn something new everyday - Fitting a bigger Front mount Intercooler makes a big improvement in refinment.

good review. Nice to know that its all coming together. Some mods are not done purely for power increase, they are done because it fits with the overal scheme of mods and its the right thing to do. Way to go, keep it coming

mura,

the original i/c in the elantra is a front mount. so the new one is just bigger.

I dont think it make the "refinment" any better, the car is just quieter
