The function of the intercooler is to cool the air compressed by the turbocharger / supercharger, reducing its temperature and thereby increasing the density of the air supplied to the engine. As the air is compressed by mycoles a turbocharger /supercharger it gets very hot. As its temperature climbs, its oxygen content (density) drops, so by cooling the air, an intercooler allows denser, more oxygen rich air to the engine, allowing more fuel to be burned, thus improving combustion and giving more power.
