Part number BEH-376899051 is a new, unused Behr intercooler. Intercoolers typically reduce the temperature of the air that has been pressurized by a turbo or supercharger. That pressurized, cool air is ideal for performance as more fuel can be mixed and thus more horsepower created. As a result any leak in the intercooler itself will greatly degrade performance as the system will not be able to maintain the needed pressure. One way to check for an intercooler system leak is to spray soapy water on the system as the car runs. Wherever you see bubbles forming you have a leak.
