INTERCOOLER, AIR CHARGE TEMPERATURE GAUGE KIT, 1/8" NPT FITTING
WHY FIT AN ACT GAUGE?
This Intercooler Temperature gauge monitors the temperature of the charged (or forced) air entering the plenum, intercooler prior to ignition.
On turbo charged cars, the colder the air, the denser the charge creating more power. By fitting the gauge, you can see exactly how effective mods like bigger intercoolers or ducting have on the incoming and outgoing air temperatures.
ACT gauges are particularly useful on cars with adjustable boost. If the temps are too high, you can turn down the boost to save your engine. Likewise, if the gauge is showing lower temperatures, then you know it’s safe to crank up the boost (as long as the ECU has been mapped to manage the fuel and ignition requirements of the extra boost).
How do you know if your intercooler is working efficiently if you can’t monitor the temperature of the air coming out of it? Is your intercooler really providing cool air to your engine or is it often ‘HEAT SOAKED’ and pumping out hot air, sapping your engine’s power and efficiency?
An inefficient intercooler could be robbing your car’s power and causing engine damage.
The gauge allows you to see how efficiently your intercooler or charge cooler is working and also gives you warning should charge temperatures reach dangerous levels, allowing you to avoid situations where detonation may occur. Customers have learned a lot about how the intercooler works, and how our intake temps change with weather, speed, and load, from using this gauge.
As a highly accurate tuning tool for Turbocharged vehicles, our gauge is designed for universal compatibility with any vehicle, whether it has a Petrol, Diesel, LPG, Turbo or Non Turbo charged engine.
