First, our full kit installed on our shop 2003 WRX Bugeye wagon!
This intercooler fills out the bumper completely and looks fantastic. Next up, a look at this kit fully installed on the Hawkeye.
And a couple shots of our finalized GR STi kit!
Now that we had all of our kits developed, the project is complete, right? Wrong! We haven’t tested this intercooler out yet! Now, we have conducted a ton of CFD and core research which has provided us with a very high probability of success. However, we believe in testing all of our products to provide real-world data that our customers can use to base their purchasing decisions on. This product is going to present some challenges for data presentation. Enthusiasts upgrading to a front-mount intercooler have such a variance in modifications and power output that it is very difficult to provide data that will apply to everyone. Our plan is to evaluate the efficiency of the cooler on a mildly built vehicle. This efficiency can then be used to analyze the results of this cooler on a variety of vehicles running different boost pressures, turbochargers, engine internal modifications and tunes.
Check back with us next time for information and images from testing!
