A transparent intercooler shows off how the air flows within
If you're one of those automotive enthusiasts who love to see the inner workings of crucial parts, you're in for a treat. In this video by the YouTuber Warped Perception, you can get a peek inside a transparent intercooler on the dyno at a high boost and be amazed by how the air flows within.
Before you watch the video, you should know that the intercooler is fitted to a 1,000-horsepower Toyota Supra Mk IV. According to The Drive, the 2JZ engine is equipped with a gigantic single turbo arrangement, with the massive intercooler tasked with lowering intake temperatures and assisting in the production of enormous power outputs. In the video, Warped Perception feeds fog into the intercooler via the air filter and turbo, then shoots it in slow motion with a high-speed camera to show the flow patterns and how the air distributes in the intercooler. If you're curious to see the demonstration and learn more about the process, make sure you watch the video embedded above, and as always, enjoy. Then, you can watch this video to see what happens when you run a transparent engine on gunpowder.
