DESCRIPTION

Infiniti is known for uncompromised luxury, comfort, and style; but enthusiasts love them for their overbuilt engines that can produce huge power without skipping a beat. The 2016+ Infiniti Q50 follows this same formula with a luxurious interior, stylish exterior, and the VR30DDTT twin-turbocharged 3.0L engine that it shares with its legendary cousin, the Skyline. From the factory, the VR30 produces up to 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, but with upgraded turbos and fueling, Q50s and Q60s are easily hitting 1,000 horsepower.

That much power requires massive amounts of air to be crammed into the engine. The stock intercoolers are well suited for stock engines, but they weren’t designed for four-digit power levels. That’s why Mishimoto has developed our performance air-to-water intercoolers for the 2016+ Q50/Q60 3.0T. Our intercoolers feature a 49.8% increase in core volume over the stock intercoolers for improved heat transfer and maximum performance. That increase in core volume, combined with optimized tubes and fins, also allows our intercoolers to be over 51% less restrictive than stock. That means your turbos don’t have to work as hard, and the boost pressure they generate isn’t wasted shoving air through a restrictive intercooler.

All those improvements result in dyno-proven charge air temperatures that are up to 23°F cooler than stock. Colder intake charge temps mean your VR30 can make the most of every drop of fuel, and we were able to produce power gains of up to 8 HP and 12 lb.-ft of torque without a retune*.

We also know that high boost pressures require strong components, which is why we constructed our intercoolers with cast aluminum end tanks. This design eliminates potential leak points and stress concentrations that welded tanks may suffer from. The included ancillary hoses and couplers ensure coolant and air flow reliably through the intercoolers, and the included engine cover spacers let you keep your extra cooling hidden for a stealth approach. Like all Mishimoto products, these performance intercoolers for the 2016+ Q50/Q60 3.0T are backed by our Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.

Evolution is all about improving over the generations. We hold our ancestors in high regard because they were able to make the first changes, but we use that as a base to improve. It's much the same with the Q50's potent platform.

Evolution for us living organisms is an arduous process. It’s a generational operation that can take millions of years for adaptation or improvements to implement fully. Luckily though, we’ve evolved to the point where our tools and tech reduce the evolution process to our performance machines to a fraction of the time. As a result, … Continue reading Trickle Down Power – 2016+ Infiniti Q50/Q60 3.0T Performance Intercooler R&D, Part 3 – Prototyping and Preliminary Testing →
