The power to deliver better performance Our Products

More power and lower emissions for your turbocharged vehicle. We design and produce cooling systems for a range of applications.

Automotive - Active Charge Air Cooling

Our Active Charge Air Cooling system comprises the following items:

  • A turbo expander unit - roughly the size of a turbocharger. Our unit has sealed for life high capacity bearings so does not need an oil supply and can be mounted in any orientation to suit the installation requirements of your vehicle
  • An additional intercooler
  • Pipework that fits into the existing inlet piping on the vehicle
  • All mounting and securing brackets and bolts.
  • A standalone control system
  • Full test results to confirm the reduced engine inlet temperatures

What improvements can I expect?

We normally expect owners to see an increase in power of 10-15% plus a fuel economy improvement of around 10% - depending on the duty cycle of the vehicle.

The fuel savings will be greater when the engine is operating at high power for longer. However, if a highly tuned engine is severely knock-limited, e.g. the Ford RS Focus, then much bigger power gains are possible. Another benefit of raising the power with this system is that it avoids having to rebuild the engine with a lower compression ratio as is often the case for high states of tune.

What are the options?

Design and Fit

A bespoke service where we design an ACT Turbo-Cooling System specifically for your make and model of car.

We will model the predicted temperatures, pressures, mass flows and densities around the system on our state of the art simulation software and use the results to determine the size and capacity required for each component in the TCS.

We procure or manufacture the required components and invite you to bring your car to our premises for fitting. This normally takes 1-2 days, depending on the model. We then test the car and, using real time diagnostic equipment, produce a full set of results in graph format to demonstrate the benefits being produced by the system.

Standard Fit

For makes and models already in our range, we can offer standard fitment of an installation already proven for your car.

All you have to do is get in touch to make a fitting appointment, bring your car to us and we’ll do the rest. After fitting, we test the car and, using real time diagnostic equipment, produce a full set of results in graph format to demonstrate the benefits being produced by the system.
