The power output of a turbocharged diesel engine will drop as the density of the air will decrease.
If the water flow through the after cooler is reduced, the air temperature increases. The air volume increases and the density decreases. For the same volume, the mass of the air from, will be always less than what it would be if the temperature was lower. Higher the temperature, the weight of the air reduces, the fuel injected will not burn efficiently. Hence, there is a drop in the power output of the engine.
