Volvo Performance Parts

Volvo has set quality at the top of their bar throughout their history. They have brought the auto industry superior vehicles with innovative designs, all with a promise to deliver an enhanced automobile. Volvo still manufactures advanced engineered vehicles. They have a widespread catalog, which has helped them to expand into a global auto leader, and more specifically, with their performance parts and components. A great performance option for your Volvo is the intercooler kit. As your Volvo drives air comes through the air intake and flows through the intercooler's internal chambers and cooling fins. These fins transfer heat from the air passing through them to the outside of the intercooler, reducing the internal temperature. This heat, taken outré from the intercooler as outside air, flows through the cooling fins, producing a cooler internal air temperature. This air is denser and allows more oxygen to increase for combustion. The cool air is then linked to the turbocharger. An air-to-liquid intercooler manages in a similar way to an air-cooled intercooler. Exterior air flows through the air intake and into the intercooler, transferring heat through a jacket of liquid coolant being held between the outside and interior walls of the intercooler. Water is usually used for this because it can transfer more energy while heating up. The cooler air is then flowed to the turbocharger while a radiator cools the heated liquid. If you have questions about Volvo’s performance parts or Volvo Air Intake Performance Parts, the FCP Euro team and website are available constantly.

Intercoolers and turbo plumbing for your Volvo are pretty easy things and there are not many ways they can become faulty. If an intercooler or the plumbing between your turbo and engine starts to leak, the will vent boost pressure to the exterior and cause a loss of oxygen flowing into your Volvo’s engine. This will throw off your air to fuel ratio, forcing your engine to run extremely fuel oriented. Since there is not enough oxygen on hand to burn the fuel going into your engine, your Volvo will end up spewing out raw fuel from your Volvo’s exhaust pipe in a cloud of black smoke. Be aware that every particle of black smoke is a drop of fuel, so you can expect a huge drop in your fuel economy, as well as performance. Your Volvo’s intercooler is actually an aftercooler. An intercooler is a heat exchanger that goes in between the two turbos in a series turbocharge system, while an aftercooler goes between the final turbo and the engine. Intercooler failure is fairly rare, at least compared to failures in the plumbing between it and other parts.
