WRC style front mount intercooler kit.
On a standard car the charge cooler kit is actually quite effective. However when tuned, the greater heat output from the engine saturates the water system and therefore intake temperatures soar out of control.
On mildly tuned engines this situation can be alleviated by using a larger Pre-rad , however the system still has its limits and with sustained use on higher powered vehicles, temperatures still climb to scary levels. Therefore Pro Alloy have developed this huge front mount intercooler kit.
The original charge cooler kit is completely removed and the battery is re-located with the alloy battery tray to the position where the charge cooler was.
The air filter is also relocated (a cone type filter must be used), this allows the filter to draw cold air from under the bumper and not hot air from the back of the radiator. Re-locating these parts also helps with water radiator temperatures due to increased air flow on the rear of the radiator.
The water temperature fell by 6°C on the Pro Alloy test car with the new intercooler fitted on a 6°C hotter day. There was also a significant rise in boost pressure indicating that the new cooler was flowing with less restriction than the original charge cooler setup. Air intake temperatures were stabilised and settled at a peak of 45°C on our test car down from 54°C (and rising!) with the OE set up.
The kit is supplied complete and ready to fit. Fitting can be performed at home as there is no welding or cutting required. You do not need to turn the turbo housing with this kit.Application:
