Intercooler meaning

Intercooler definition

A device which cools the air entering the carburetor or fuel injection system. Colder air has more oxygen molecules than warm air. Thus cooler air gives more power and better fuel economy . An intercooler looks like a radiator . It contains large passages for the intake flow, and uses either outside air or water directed over it to lower the temperature of the intake flow inside.
