TPC Racing Blitzkrieg Intercoolers Porsche 997 Turbo 05+
The key to huge horsepower in high performance cars is air density. A higher air density allows for more fuel to be burned and thus, more power to be produced. In the world of high performance tuning, it is a never ending quest to find new ways of achieving higher air density. With that goal in mind, TPCRacing set out to create the ultimate intercooler design for the Porsche 997Turbo. What we came up with were the massive TPCRacing 5" Blitzkrieg Intercoolers.
Designing high quality intercooler upgrades for the 997Turbo is a very difficult process. While the OEM units are incredibly effetive on stock/lightly modified cars, high-horsepower vehicles demand a greater amount of air-flow than the OEM intercoolers can handle. In order to produce an effective intercooler upgrade, capable of supporting +700hp, many variables had to be addressed. These variables included, controling pressure drop across the intercooler, controlling intake tempurature change across the intercooler, creating a maximum amount of cooling surface area, and allowing for the most efficient flow of air through both aspects of the intercooler cores.
One of our primary concerns with the design of the TPCRacing Blitzkrieg Intercoolers was controlling pressure drop across the core with increased cooling comes natural pressure rise, an efficiency killer, TPCRacing to the rescue, with the 775Blitzkrieg Series Intercoolers. With a whopping 5"(127mm) core, the 775B Intercoolers are a full 57mm larger than the factory 997TT units! The factory cores are tube and fin, and are the best type of intercooler core for their application. However, the TPCRacing 5" Blitzkrieg Intercoolers were developed as a bar and plate hybrid boasting tube and fin type internals. This hybrid arrangment has gives our intercoolers two outstanding traits; the allow for incredibly efficient airflow through the core as well as amazing heat transfer capabilities.
This arrangment allows us to produce maximum air density, while still maintaining the factory intercooler ducting with some modification. Retaining this ducting is absolutely essential to generating optimum airflow over the surface of the intercooler. With out the ducting feeding the 997Turbo;s intercoolers, the airflow will encounter an area of extreme turbulance within the intercooler inlets, and will greatly reduce the intercooler;s overall efficiency.
Because this hybrid core had never been produced before, custom tooling had to be created just to produce them. The TPCRacing 775B Intercooler Cores are a completely unique design and custom design, exclusive to TPCRacing. They are most certainly not off-the-shelf units that our competitors use. These units were manufactured with only one application in mind; creating maximum hp on the TPCRacing 775Blitzkrieg.
