Process West are recognised for producing some of the strongest intercoolers on the market and this front mount intercooler system is no exception - their main focus is design and excelling in quality parts. The intercooler core is a large 685 x 285 x 100mm bar and plate core that comes with lightweight CNC mandrel bent aluminium intercooler pipes.
- Maximum air flow and greater distribution across the intercooler core is achieved through high-flow polished aluminum end tanks.
- The cooling efficiency of the turbocharger is improved because the front mount intercooler provides the vehicle with larger surface coverage. This in turn reduces heat soak and allows the turbo to operate optimally.
