Anyone running inner or after coolers on their TD?

    Just wondering if its really worth the extra $ for the power or is it more of a longivity mod? Any pics if you have one shoved under a blazer hood?

    While you won't notice a huge set-of-the-pants difference, you will get much less black smoke and me able to maintain higher power levels for longer periods. Every turbodiesel should be intercooled if towing is part of the plan.

    It helps longevity due to lower inlet temps, thus lower EGTs which allows more fuel to be injected to get back to the same EGT. It basically just allows more fuel to be pumped into the engine while getting the same or lower EGT. Also helps emissions like NOx especially.
