Have you noticed how your Turbo engine seems more powerful and responsive in cold weather? As the inlet temperature is reduced, the air becomes 'more dense' packing a greater number of O2 molecules, which results in a more powerful combustion.

This nets more horsepower to the wheels. Now you can have similar performance even on warmer sunny days with this intercooler upgrade


Technically, the Intercooler upgrade does not 'add' horsepower, but it reduces the losses which results in a net power gain at the wheels. The engine basically 'retains' the horsepower normally lost to high inlet temperatures.

The difference is pronounced on warmer days where normally, the car would feel 'sluggish'. If you live in colder climates (ie Alaska) - this may not be a cost-effective upgrade. But if you have warm climate or hot summers, it's worth it!

Customer Reviews Rating Absolutely the best Stumbled upon this product for my '13 Mini Cooper S on the NAM forum. I've heard about Wagner making great products for BMWs in the past and I'm glad they do for the Mini as well. By far, this has been the best intercooler I've found for the Mini. The quality is just top notch and no hiccups with the direct bolt on replacement for the stock one too. Still yet to read IATs but I've read they work very well. Wagner is the way to go!

Very nice product. Very well made. End tanks are cast aluminum with beefy mounting tabs that mimic the stock intercooler tabs. We will see how well the black paint holds up to all the gravel we get here in AZ. Installation on my 2013 GP2 went as can be expected for something like this. Getting the front off of the R56 mini cooper was somewhat annoying. Mini uses all kinds of clips and such that break as you take them apart. The actual intercooler install went quite easily once I had the front body components removed. It fit perfectly against the chassis of the car. There was some minor trimming of the lower reinforcement bar necessary at the corners of the intercooler as well as very light trimming of the backside of the lower grill for clearance. I just used a die grinder with a cutting disc for the metal stuff and a coarse tooth burr bit for the plastic stuff. None of this trimming can be seen once the car is put back together. Performance wise, The car feels a little bit snappier. Especially on cooler days, mornings and such. Pulls to redline a bit easier. I installed this intercooler along with a JB+. So, as a result of having done both at the same time, it's hard to attribute which mod is doing what exactly. I can say that the two of them together have very much improved the way this car zips around town. I'm very happy with the purchase though. Would buy it again if I had another car.

Competition is, however, not be a release in Korea, has been to buy directly from Wagner's home page. Mounting and steady at high speed was improved, helped in weight. A good product.
