Call it an aftercooler or call it an intercooler but the industry standard name is Charge Air Cooler or CAC. Look at any OEM automaker who has offered an Eaton based supercharger and they have all had charge air cooling. The supercharger kits available from the major domestic companies also include CAC. Why don’t the common import kits have any cooling? Answer: COST! In order the keep the costs down; they opted to eliminate the charge cooling option. That is not too bad if you are boosting less than 5psi, but when the boost goes up, so does the heat.
Recognizing the benefits that CAC offers and that more Honda Civic Si owners wanted more from their supercharged cars and some were even afraid to drive them in the summer heat, we decided to see what we could do with the CTE manifold. After many careful measurements and many hours modeling on the computer we are proud to have developed what you see today.
Easy to bolt on IMT charge-air cooler.
Our highest performing charge-air cooler.
What our customers had to say.
...the kit installation went without any issues. I was very impressed with the quality of all the parts. I have not been that impressed in a long time with aftermarket parts. Kudos to you guys! The guys at King Motorsports were very impressed with how well the aftercooler worked. They said they have never seen IAT's this low ever with a CT or Jackson kit. Apparently they didn't go above 105 degrees the entire time it was on the dyno which was 2 days straight of no stop pulls. Joe K. 4/22/13
Hey Troy, Received all the goodies today. :) As with your other products, the flange adapter, and phenolic spacer are really top quality. Cant wait to get everything fitted.Got my supercharger and aftercooler kit installed and running. Must say it works fantastic. Guys at the install shop were very impressed with the aftercooler fabrication. Andy T 12/14/12
Well the install could not have went smother. Your instructions could not have been more clear. You have made a great product and performance was proven on the dyno. My wife is very pleased. The vehicle produced 337 WHP and 235 Torque on a Dyno Pack dyno. Mike L. 1/15/13
The install went flawless. Thing is amazing. Car pulls harder. Just need a retune cos it leaned by .4 at wot. Thanks man. Can't never thank you enough for your quick responses. Lol never had a customer service like what you gave me. Jayson S.
"I can not say enough good things about IMT. They put alot of thought and effort into making sure everything works perfect and is easy to install. Their stuff truly is a work of art! On top of that, the service I recieved from them has been top notch. They even shipped my ac the morning before hurricane Sandy was due to go right over the top of them. This was definitley above and beyond my expectations!!" Ross H.
Just want to let you know that the AC is pretty awesome! Dave did the install and he said that instructions and install was pretty straight forward. Its performing really well. Took it to a 1/8 track last Friday and did over 15 runs with it and it didnt even heat up the engine. Quality of the product is definitely top notch! Im glad I bought it! Keep up the good work and quality! Thats what keeps people coming back and I recommend IMT to others before anyone else. Paolo G.
I installed my kit Friday! I really like the fact that everything is pre wired and that the pump stay active for about 30 sec after turning off the car! JP

Hi Troy I was able to at least open the box last night which I am glad I finally got to as I would not have slept well knowing I hadn't ha ha ha. As expected the parts look beautiful and very well designed IMHO. Thomas
