Re: RIPP Heavy Duty Intercooler FOR 3.0 TDI Grand Cherokee
Years ago on my 7.3 Powerstroke we ran a certain grade and heavy load on a dyno (the programming allowed this) with the stock intercooler and then did the same using the Banks 6.0 Intercooler which was much larger.
As I recall we saw no hp difference, but substantial egt differences on sustained runs. 220 degrees as I recall. And sure enough in real life that was an amazing towing rig.
I wouldn't count on any hp at all but for a guy towing it could make great sense, as long as it doesn't further restrict air flow to the already undersized OEM radiator.
