    Just by adding an intercooler in the path? No sir, not at all. You will actually harm your stock performance as the intercooler will act as nothing more than a hindrance on stock setting.

    It is of use ONLY if you intend to up the boost a bit and keep your intake air temps low.

    On stock boost, the intercooler is of no use.

    Cheers.

    TJet already has an intercooler, albeit of a smaller size. I would not tamper with the default settings and get a bigger one as the other stuff in the car (gearbox and some other components) may not be able to handle the load. Current power delivery appears good enough for now

    You are right to some extent but ECU will be able to sense more dense air will increase fueling to certain extent with ceiling may be 2-5 HP but to get significant boost it will need a tweak in ECU.

    In the same breath, kindly take into note the hindrance which will be posed by an intercooler when there was none before. Assuming we potentially gain a few hp, but you'll lose that much with effectively no gains whatsoever. The performance will be even more laggy. These things are designed into the system. We cannot just add a random component and expect it to work.

    If you want to make it work, install a larger than stock, remap the ECU on the dyno, tweak the boost and fuel and then see the benefits. Apart from this, we're just hunting in the dark.

    Cheers.

    Can someone post pics of the T-JET intercooler here, there is still a bit of confusion over this amongst members of TFI.
  7. There is no intercooler in TJet,as per a mod in TBHP Tjet can gain HP by adding it.
