Got a nice but surprisingly light box delivered today, with the new front mounted heat exchanger.
This one will go below the front bumper, and I plan to use it in series with the OEM heat exchanger.
Here is a shot of my new intercooler cooling team together:
Sorry for the rapid image cropping, but I knew you’d want to see it sooner than if I took the time to fix it perfectly.
The new HX arrived with hoses and fittings, so the install should be getting the front clip off again, drilling two holes in the bumper to mount the new HX, putting back in the OEM HX, and then connecting hoses etc.
After the install we’ll get new IAT2 numbers over the test area, and see if I get the expected improvement, or we have some new factor at play here!
