An additional pamphlet was included with these models in the owners manuals about the "new" intercooler system otherwise noted as IBS (intercooler boost system):
"The standard B21FT turbo engine employs a turbo-charger to force air at a boost pressure of 6.5 psi into the engine inlet manifold. A resulting increase in air flow mass improves power output by approximately 30 horsepower over that developed by the normally aspirated B21F engine.
In carrying the tuning process one stage further, the Intercooler Boost System cools the compressed inlet air and increases the boost pressure to 8 psi.
An RPM sensor triggers the on-off valve to control the pressure to the wastegate actuator. This increases the boost pressure by a further 2.5 psi when the engine is running with wide open throttle above 3700 RPM.
The intercooler is located between the turbo compressor and the inlet manifold, and limits intake air temperature rise to approximately 70°F (21°C). This compares with about 190°F (87°C) for the standard turbo engine. Resulting in increased air density, and boost pressure improves the engine power output by a further 30 horsepower over the standard turbo engine.
Engine torque is increased over the full working RPM range, producing improved performance characteristics without compromising appreciably, the smoothness or noise level over that of the standard engine."
