Procharger - 94-95 5.0L Mustang GT / Cobra Stage II Intercooled System with D-1 - 1FB324-D1
ATI introduced the industry's first intercooled supercharger system nearly 3 years before its nearest competitor, and is still the only company that offers intercooling as an integrated solution rather than just an after-thought. Intercooled centrifugal supercharging is simply the most sophisticated, reliable and cost effective method for substantially increasing the horsepower and torque of your vehicle. Because intercooling removes heat, increases air/fuel density and allows the use of factory (or close to factory) ignition timing, a well-designed intercooled supercharger system will produce far larger power gains than a non-intercooled supercharger system, especially for fuel-injected motors running pump gas. And after three years of saying that intercooling doesn't work, even our competitors now agree with this.

Benefits of Intercooling
Greatly Reduced Intake Temperature
- An 85° - 200° drop in air temperature (dependent upon application) results in a more dense, powerful fuel/air charge, greatly reduces exposure to detonation, and virtually eliminates the "power fade" felt in back-to-back runs and extended pulls without intercooling
- This reduction in temperature allows you to run factory (or close to factory) timing, and avoids the substantial horsepower loss inflicted by excessively retarded ignition timing
More Low-End Boost and Horsepower
- The intercooler also acts as a passive wastegate, flattening the boost curve at higher rpm's and allowing more boost to be dialed in at lower rpm's
An Expanded Power Band - Full timing and forced induction keep the engine pulling hard to the redline
- Not only will you experience the above benefits at any boost level, you can also safely run substantially more boost when intercooled!
Air vs Water
Accessible Technologies manufactures both air-to-air and air-to-water intercooler systems, and the guidelines for their usage are fairly straightforward. For automotive street applications, air-to-air technology is easy to install, highly effective, extremely reliable since it has no moving parts, and requires no maintenance. Air-to-water intercooler systems, on the other hand, are much more difficult to install as they contain an intercooler, a separate radiator to cool the water, a water tank, and a pump. But probably the biggest drawback to air-to-water on the street is that this technology requires the addition of ice to match the efficiency of air-to-air technology. Additionally, the requirement of ice and the possibility of pump failure or leakage means that air-to-water is also inherently less reliable. For race-only applications, air-to-water works well since the need to add ice at the track prior to each run is not a big drawback. The other issues are the same as listed above for street applications, and efficiency will be comparable with the use of ice.
For marine applications, air-to-water is the preferred technology, for three primary reasons. First, the installation of a pump and radiator are no longer required (the lake or ocean is the radiator, and boats already have a water pickup/pump). Second, ice is not required, given the availability of massive amounts of cool lake or ocean water into which heat can be transferred. And finally, since boat engines are typically situated in the rear rather than in the front (like most automobiles), it would be very difficult to find adequate airflow for an air-to-air intercooler in the back of the boat.
