D3 Intercooler Lid Spacer
We have been busy producing more Cadillac quality parts and this just one of the latest items to come to production.
Our intercooler lid spacer not only increase power by a dyno proven 7.5WHP but it also helps reduce turbulence inside the supercharger lid. Turbulence causes friction and heat, thus decreasing the thermal efficiency of the compressed air. Without the spacer in place, overboosted vehicles will experience choking inside the intercooler lid. The air inside can become turbulent to the point where it starts to restrict airflow. By inserting the spacer, the air calms down allowing the passage through the intercooler without the unwanted turbulence. The result is a more efficient factory brick intercooler while keeping the factory unit in place rather than replacing it with a less efficient unit.
The D3 Intercooler Lid Spacer will increase plenum capacity by 63 cubic inches. The aluminum spacer has been CNC cut and machined perfectly flat on each side. This comes with new mounting hardware and will clear the factory engine brace without modification.
