    This might help....
    Intercoolers
    When air is compressed, it heats up; and when air heats up, it expands. So some of the pressure increase from a turbocharger is the result of heating the air before it goes into the engine. In order to increase the power of the engine, the goal is to get more air molecules into the cylinder, not necessarily more air pressure.
    The intercooler is just a radiator to cool hot air coming from the turbo.
    A water spray kit just sprays the intercooler with water, a water injection kit sprays water into the intercooler piping. The spray is a fine mist so it wont hydrolock the engine.

    hello!!
    yeah libra is rite!!!!
    yes just think that its a small radiator which cools the air intake by the engine...reason as sample as said by libra that its a property of air that when its hot it expands so graducally less air come in engine resulting lower fuel ratio means less power so heavy engine or say that high performance engine use intercoller to cool air so that it can not expand resulting more air in engine which means more fuel which gives more power....it a small radiator which cools air simple
    Thanxxx

    Well, I think Its like a family vehicle not a true SUV spirit. It works good in the city but not on a bit rough terrain for a longer period of time. Ride is quite comfortable, DVD option is good, All things power, interior is Ok, As far as Engine is concerned sorry to say but its third class as compared to Toyota or Nissan. Price tag goes fine as there is no other new SUV available in this price range except tht Adam Family one but instead of spending 15Lac on a local assembeled cosmetic jeep its better to get a used Land Cruiser or a Nissan Patrol of 1990 onwards. The only reason it worked fine is due to its capacity as ppl with budget and large families can accomodate their childern in it. Really bad on highways as it got very poor road grip and NO for kutcha pakka road. The true quality of SUV speaks for itself after 5 years and If ya got one I congratulate ya.
    Thnx.
    Jayala....

    I am a dealer, I was very much against Sportage until recently when I had to get 1 (a long story why) but in the last 2 months v've sold 2 spotrages & just got my 3rd car (2 being 2003 & 1 2002 model).
    I personally like the car very much. Its got the value for money & the resale is also very good.Havent used outside city so cant say anything about that

    WELL SPORTAGE IS NOT THE KIND OF JEEP IT IS KIND OF CAR+JEEP. SO ITHINK IF U ARE SPEND 15LAC BUY A 2.0D SALOON FEEL THE COMFORT + BRAND NAME.

    Why are people so hung up on Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic...I mean the way the traffic is here, Sportage makes absolute sense. It has a high ride, some what rugged and more space than that diesel shell we call OD.No offense to OD admirers..
