Reinforced Intercooler 'Brick' for '09-'13 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Lid

GM designed the intercooler 'bricks' in the Supercharged 6.2L LS9 to withstand the stock boost level of about 9 psi. With increased boost levels produced by aftermarket upper/lower pulleys, the structure of the brick is not only subjected to higher boost pressures but also higher thermal loads. These two factors will inevitably cause the coolant end-tank to cave in, which results in a reduction of water flow within the core as well as a reduction in overall intercooler efficiency. Once the end-tanks cave in, the structural integrity of the brick itself may also be compromised, which can lead to higher intake air temps and coolant leakage (internal or external).

In order to address the inherent weakness of the OEM design, Dedicated Motorsports offers reinforced intercooler 'bricks' which are pressure tested up to 25 psi.

In order to correct this, you can send in your brick to be reinforced. Once received, we will modify it and then ship it back to you within 2-3 business days.

Each reinforced Intercooler 'Brick' will be modified through the following process:
All bricks are cleaned in a low PH solution.
Inspected for damaged fins, clogged coolant passages and other deformations.
The bricks are then pressure tested to 25psi and inspected for leaks. Any repairable leaks will be fixed. Others will be rejected.
Next any deformed end tanks will be straightened back to OEM specs.
At this point, a 5052 aluminum, .125 thick reinforcement plate will be TIG welded on the target area by one of our in house fabricators.
This will be followed by a final pressure test to insure there are no leaks present.
Each unit is then dried and visually inspected again before packaging.
