This Mini Cooper S Intercooler Upgrade includes the high performance Intercooler upgrade from Wagner Tuning and some of the plumbing 'pipe' upgrades from NM Engineering for maximum flow through the intercooler. Improving the flow of the intake charge from the Turbocharger to the Intake Manifold results in more air into the combustion chamber which results in more power!
Improving flow through the engine is a fundamental concept when seeking more power from the engine. This kit addresses the area between the Turbo and the engine. This kit should be used in conjuction with an Intake upgrade and an Exhaust upgrade.
Fits the following Cooper S models:
2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper S Hardtop
2008-2014 R55 MINI Cooper S Clubman
2009-2015 R57 MINI Cooper S Convertible
2012-2015 R58 MINI Cooper S Coupe
2012-2015 R59 MINI Cooper S Roadster
2011-2016 R60 MINI Cooper S Countryman
2013-2016 R61 MINI Cooper S Paceman
Three versions available:
NOTE: The 2011+ Performance unit is the same dimensions as the 2011+ Competition version. The difference is in the weight of the unit and the core design. The Competition unit uses a more efficient Tube-Fin core instead of the heavier Bar-Plate core.
The Wagner Intercoolers will improve efficiency, lower combustion temperatures, and reduce power loss from excessive intake temperatures - the net result is more power at the wheels!
TURBO OUTLET & CHARGE PIPE UPGRADES
The Premium Hi-Flow Turbo Outlet Pipe 3-piece kit eliminates the intake muffler and replaces the factory rubber hose between the turbocharger and intercooler (hot-side) with a new CNC mandrel bent pipe and silicone couplers (upper and lower) that will not expand under boost.
The Hi-Flow Charge Pipe Upgrade replaces the factory necked-down hose between the intercooler and throttle body (cold-side) just before the intake manifold. The Hi-Flow Charge Pipe Upgrade includes a new CNC mandrel bent pipe and silicone couplers that will not expand under boost. The system eliminates OEM sound chamber which, in result, helps to increase turbo response as well as mid-range and top-end power.
NOTE: THE PERFORMANCE INTERCOOLER UPGRADE CAN ONLY BE USED IN A COMPETITION RACING VEHICLE THAT IS NOT DRIVEN ON PUBLIC ROADS, UNDER CALIFORNIA STATE LAW IT IS NOT LEGAL FOR STREET USE.
