This uprated intercooler has been designed as an upgrade for MINI Countryman Cooper S models. After considerable trials with different intercoolers cores, Forge found that the most efficient for these models, was an intercooler of bar and plate design, and along with a significant overall increase in dimensions they have been able to improve the cooling ability and reduce the pressure loss across the core when compared to a stock unit. This means more power and greater potential for tuning. Forge’s own road and dyno testing showed that their intercooler was twice as efficient as the original intercooler with the inlet temperatures halved.
- Fitting instructions
- Q. Does this require a remap? – A. A remap is not required when fitting an intercooler
- Q. How much power will the intercooler add? A. Intercoolers do not add much in the way of BHP, but the difference they make is noticeable as you will have more power throughout the entire rev range. An enlarged intercooler also enables more power to be extracted from an ECU remap
