This is Forge Motorsport’s upgarded Intercooler
With Forges extensive development, we were very eager to use our wealth of knowledge to extract the best possible results from the Turbo charged Honda Civic Type R. Immediately we were able to increase the size of the core, allowing much more surface area and cooling efficiency than the stock core. Our intercooler now uses up all the space that Honda had failed to take advantage of.
The core measures a massive 660x150x120 wide, and is of bar and plate design. The ducting completely surrounds the grill ensuring all of the air coming in the front of the car passes through the intercooler. The end tanks are designed such that the standard boost hoses can be retained, and are of cast aluminium construction. To ensure that this monster is adequately supported, the OEM mounting points are reused, which also eases the installation process.
We have seen good power increases, and large temperature drops were achieved compared to the stock core, though it will really come into its own on a remapped engine!
