When the 3.0L Duramax was first released in Chevrolet and GMC pickups, Many wondered if the mid-sized diesel could deliver on its promises made by Chevrolet. We patiently waited to see how well these small mills handled daily life and it wasn’t long until the aftermarket came around and started developing upgrades. With an engine that already makes impressive power and drives incredibly well, what could the aftermarket develop to make it better? We’re never happy or satisfied with things out of the box, so here we are, talking about upgrades.
We would like to introduce you to one of the latest upgrades, a new air-to-water intercooler from Pacific Performance Diesel (PPE). The new intercooler is designed to complement 2020 through 2024 GM 3.0L Duramax engines (LZ0/LM2) and is engineered to redefine your driving experience with increased performance and efficiency. There are two words not often used in the same sentence. Anyway, this cutting-edge intercooler kit boasts exceptional features that elevate your vehicle’s capabilities to a whole new level. With a staggering 77 percent less restriction than the stock intercooler, this kit ensures your engine breathes easily, allowing for maximum power output.
The standout feature of this intercooler kit is its impressive larger core which is 2.4 times larger than the OE piece. This results in up to 30 degrees lower intake air temperatures. By reducing inlet backpressure and enhancing turbocharger efficiency, this kit delivers a cooler and denser charge air to your engine, significantly improving overall engine performance and fuel efficiency. This intercooler features an all-aluminum bar-and-plate construction and is equipped with cast-aluminum, flow-optimized end tanks. According to PPE, this intercooler kit ensures increased airflow and lower exhaust gas temperatures (EGTs).
Installation is a breeze with its easy drop-in fit, guaranteeing consistent power output even during demanding conditions. The benefits are not just about power – cooler temperatures mean a longer engine life. Plus, with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty, you can have peace of mind knowing your investment is protected.
