To keep engine power up and consistent, lap after lap, it is important to address the stock intercooler. The latest generation of Honda factory turbocharged engines make great power when cool, but use a compact OEM intercooler, which tends to easily retain heat. This “heat soak” along with the ECU’s sensitive safety protocols reduces engine power by compensating with lower boost levels and retarded timing. During our “back to back to back” tests, the OEM factory intercooler saw loss in power of up to: -25hp/20ft/lbs for the K20 (CTR) and -20hp/12ft/lbs for the L15 (Sport/Si). While our larger more heat-soak-resistant, GPP intercooler kits, maintained consistent gains over stock of through the lower-mid to high RPM range, even after more than 3 consecutive dyno runs.
