For the 07.09 models* (R56/R57) Mini Cooper S Turbo we have developed a more efficient intercooler. As a reduction in intake air temperature increases the density of the charge mixture within the combustion cylinder any temperature reductions will equate to more power. This intercooler is constructed using a combined 80/40mm high thermal efficiency core, with a 250% larger surface area and a 125% thicker base core, to achieve the best possible results.
In fact even in relatively low road speeds / air velocities our intercooler was able to better the OEM unit by 9 degrees celsius, with greater improvements being achievable during greater speeds during track testing. The replacement intercooler is supplied with all the mountings and a replacement lower grill to allow ease of installation. Please note that this kit has been designed to fit behind the original Cooper S front panel. If an alternative aftermarket front panel has been installed, where clearances are reduced, additional trimming may be required. With great cooling and power figures and hundreds of satisfied customers this really is an upgrade you can't afford to be without for you Mini Clubman.
Due to a change in the crash bumper design on the 2010 model year vehicles this intercooler kit is not suitable and will not fit.
