The Quick Draw “Intercooler” for Cummins R2.8 is technically an Aftercooler. We are using the term intercooler because that is how most people (incorrectly) identify a device mounted between the turbo outlet and the engine inlet that is intended to cool the pressurized air coming from the turbo. Intercoolers / aftercoolers are also sometimes referred to as water-to-air exchangers. But we digress.

The Quick Draw Intercooler removes heat from the turbo’s compressed air heading to the engine intake using coolant.  This same technology is used in the commercial and industrial worlds on a number of applications.  The Turbo inlet and outlet ports on the intercooler are 2.5″  in diameter. Hot pressurized air from the turbo is plumbed into the feed side of the intercooler and flows over the internal coolant fins, which are in turn plumbed to the a fluid cooling system. This lowers the temperature of the pressurized air as it exits the intercooler and heads to the engine intake.  The coolant side of the intercooler is equipped with 5/8″ inlet and outlet ports and can be plumbed inline with a separate heat exchanger and pump. This enables the coolant to circulate through the intercooler and radiate the heat into the atmosphere.  Additional inline coolers may be necessary depending on build and geographic location.  Image shows optional black powder coating.

Kit Includes:

  • Universal Aftercooler for the Cummins R2.8
  • Mild Steel mounting brackets that can be welded or have additional bolt holes for mounting
  • 5/8″ hose fittings for Coolant lines
  • 2.5″ Silicon boots for boost lines with Clamps

Key Benefits:

  • Compact design allows for installation in tight spaces on older trucks with vertical radiators or any application with a small radiator area.
  • Allows for use of factory fit radiator.
  • Intercooler can be mounted anywhere and does not require airflow to cool the boost charge.  It will still properly function no matter where it happens to be mounted on the vehicle.
