2012 ZL1 intercooler specs?

Hi all.

My 2012 ZL1 had a significant crash repair. After that repair, i wonder if the intercooler is up to spec. I suspect maybe not: the difference between ambient and intake air temp is 80-120 degrees Fahrenheit. I thought it used to be less.

But the dealer workshop foreman says it's all fine, and the car would earn us I'd something was wrong.

Thoughts? Where can I find the specs?

Mike

I'd first check if the pump is running, and then check to see if there is air in the HEX/intercooler circuit if you haven't done either of these yet. Rule out the simple stuff first.

Yes, something is wrong. Difference between ambient and intake temp is only 40-50 deg max at WOT. And during part throttle cruise the diff. is only 10-20 deg.
In addition to Rob's suggestions make sure they didn't pinch one of the hoses when they reassembled the front end. It is tight where the hoses run around the radiator.

And where would I find anything official about that sleeve? Because the dealership just Dayus "everything is ok or we would see a computer earning". Groan.
