The IAT compared to the standard intercooler are reduced massively which means you get consistent increased performance. The standard intercooler and the MTC intercooler both had intercooler intake temperatures of between 125-140 degrees through 3 runs on the road. At the other side of the intercooler into the engine the standard intercooler temperatures were around 55 degrees whereas the MTC intercooler temperatures were between 15-18 degrees over all 3, 4th gear pulls on the road with 8 degree outside temperature. These cores are tested individually to 3 bar and are proven to flow 400bhp without any problems. The MTC intercooler features a massive 80mm bottom core and 40mm at the top for maximum surface area with flowed cast end tanks to provide the best quality.
It has a 53mm OD inlet and outlet. This intercooler will massively improve throttle response in comparison to the standard intercooler. This kit also includes the decat downpipe for the R56 which is also great for power as it removes the catalytic converter and makes it sound much better. It is very easy to fit as it is a direct replacement. There are also some great videos on YouTube to follow.
Fitting should take around 1-2 hours. There is no drilling required although it may require some trimming of the lower grill on some models. The intercooler is powder coated black with no logo. If you are unsure whether this will fit your vehicle please ask.
