This Competition intercooler is designed for all supercharged Gen I MINI's for heavy duty or competition events. This large intercooler has over more frontal area and over 60% more intercooler capacity vs the OEM size intercoolers for high performance Mini Cooper S models 2003-2006. This is one of the largest that can fit in the original intercooler position. Cheaper models skimp on size and materials. Racing Dynamics intercooler is the most intake air cooling for the money.Advantages:
- Each intercooler is manufactured with bar and plate construction for greater heat dissipation. This design is more efficient transferring heat and minimizes heat soak. Bar and plate will generally recover faster from heat either in the engine compartment or repeated heating from energetic driving. Like at track events.
- Our intercooler design allows us to increase the number of rows in a given frontal area by up to 25% over conventional designs
- Large size and greater intake air cooling capacity and still fits in OEM position - core 232mm H X 305mm W X 62mm Thick.
- Our intercoolers utilize with excellent thermal characteristics.
- Our intercoolers use cast end caps, a bit more expensive but provides more rounded shapes for better airflow. Cast aluminum end caps give the best results in air flow and reliability. Each end cap is TIG welded to the intercooler core.
- Our intercooler includes silicon hose snoot ends
