The SAC Group use Dastek Power coolers in our performance enhancement conversions. These diesel Intercooler modifications and upgrades have been carefully researched, developed to offer not only increased Power & Torque but the best efficiency, repeatability and value for money. How It Works Intercooling keeps all engine components at a stable temperature. Intercoolers are simply air coolers, working on the same principle as a radiator cooling water. Hot air travels from the turbo through the intercooler and is cooled down before entering the engine. The aluminium intercooler cores are internally and externally finned thus creating an excellent compromise between the cooling effect and minimal pressure losses. An Intercooler reduces the in-take air temperature by as much as 70% which vastly improves not only power and torque, but reliability as well. Reducing the charge air temperature into the engine minimises the combustion temperatures allowing increased power and torque due to the cooler intake air. Typical charge air temperatures without an intercooler for the modern turbo charged vehicle will vary between 100 – 200 C. With a good intercooling system this will drop to between 40 – 60 C depending on the ambient air temperature.
Bolt on exhausts
Gone are the days that you take your half a million-rand Bakkie to a corner exhaust shop for a cheap free flow exhaust. It’s fair to say that the bolt-on free flow exhausts of today at SAC have been revolutionized and are becoming more and more popular amongst the enthusiasts. It is no longer just a poorly welded and routed exhaust that rattles and knocks over every bump, it is a properly engineered, big bore, mandrill bent stainless steel-low restriction exhaust system. It is manufactured in such a way to be a bolt-on fitment in a workshop with very little effort to ensure perfection. Seeing the exhaust system in its raw form, packed and laying on a shelf – it is clear to see that this is an export quality product that will be installed on your vehicle, and it will compliment without any doubt – the performance enhancement plug and play kit and or upgraded intercooler system in many ways – most of all the sound and power will be much improved. The bolt-on exhaust system is routed along the exact same rout under your vehicle and hangs with similar brackets on the standard rubbers. The heat protection that has been provided by the manufacturer under your vehicle to protect the undercarriage is still effective and useful with the fitment of these bolt-on exhaust systems.
