If you are referring to the Swift diesel, I guess it already comes with an intercooler. Supercharger is a different thing altogether.

hey guys the petrol turbod swifts also run intercooler, most of the tuning jobs have intercoolers... and turbo setup are cheaper than superchargers..and then there is the case of getting the gearing for the pulleys right, turbos run on wasted energy hence more efficient than superchargers.

Hi Narry,

Why dont you pop over to this thread - Turbocharger vs Supercharger. There is a lot of good information in there, which will help clear your doubts.

Dinu was talking about stock swifts, not modified ones.

@ Narry, An intercooler and a supercharger are different things, with different functions.

To put it very simply, turboing is a means of supercharging your engine, where exhaust gases are used to drive a turbine that increases intake velocity to your engine.

A supercharger may use engine power (via a pulley) to drive the turbine.

An intercooler is an auxilliary component to the above systems (seen more commonly in turbo setups) that is used to keep the temperature of the system in check

Guys guess Narry means that with vikram and gabella turbo'ing their petrol Swifts, what kind of intercooler are they using? Are they taking an aftermarket one or tkaing one from lets say an Indigo or Safari or Scorpio.
And yes as mentioned earlier Narry, Supercharger is a different thing altogether and an intercooler is totally different from that.

I am sure anyone who does a turbo install will be quite capable of doing a supercharger install as well. Yes, bolt on intercoolers are available for the swift. You could I get your hands on a diesel intercooler thats selling for around 8k or get yourself a proper intercooler for about 20k that looks like this.
