1994-2002 Dodge 5.9L Cummins Intercooler
The importance of your truck’s intercooler should never be overlooked. A properly designed air-to-air unit can drop intake air temperature (IAT), decrease exhaust gas temperature (EGT) and extend turbocharger life significantly—not to mention the fact that it can add horsepower and torque. At Smeding Diesel, we offer a direct replacement performance intercooler for 2nd gen Cummins powered Rams that boasts a thicker core than stock and outflows the factory unit. Whether you’ve upgraded injectors, added a bigger turbo, or haven’t touched a thing on your ’94-’02 Dodge, you stand to benefit from one of our intercoolers.
Durable Construction & Drop-In Fitment
Our direct replacement intercooler installs seamlessly in ’94-’02 Dodge trucks equipped with either the 12-valve or 24-valve 5.9L Cummins. Its end tanks were intentionally made from cast-aluminum to ensure optimum strength in high boost applications. And even though our intercooler’s core measures 3-inches thicker than stock, it fits in the factory location with no required modifications. All you’ll need to install our drop-in, performance replacement 2nd gen intercooler is a few basic hand tools.
Performance Gains & Long-Term Durability
Every engine benefits from lower intake air temps, and our 2nd gen Cummins intercooler reduces them by as much as 25-percent over stock. The larger core and 47-percent increase in core volume over the OEM unit accounts for this significant reduction in IATs. In addition to these cooler intake temps contributing to engine longevity, the drop in EGT they provide aids turbo durability as well. Less heat means less stress for your P-pumped or VP44-fueled 5.9L Cummins.
The Price Is Right
In a market saturated with replacement intercoolers that retail for $1,000 or more, you won’t find that with the Smeding Diesel version. Our performance intercooler is designed with both quality and affordability in mind. With the nearly 50-percent increase in core volume it provides, you get significantly lower intake air and exhaust gas temps, while its robust aluminum construction means it’s capable of withstanding elevated boost. Combine that with a drop-in installation and a budget-friendly price point of $781 and it’s one of the best upgrades available for a 2nd gen Cummins.
