This front mounting intercooler has been designed as an upgrade for the Nissan GTR R35 models. After considerable trials, we found that the most efficient for these models was a core of tube and fin design, and along with an overall increase in dimensions we have been able to improve the cooling ability dramatically. We make full use of the front opening of the bumper, and fully duct our intercooler to it, unlike many others on the market.
This gives a huge leap in efficency and goes a long way to keeping intake temperatures down. Our intercooler is a massive 102% larger than the stock intercoolers (i.e. more than twice as big!). Our own testing was conducted on software and hardware tuned vehicles, to ensure that they would be working their hardest and the results showed both a reduction in inlet temperature, an increase in horsepower and torque, but with no detrimental effect on turbo spool-up.
Very recent customer tests (October 2012) showed only a 9 degrees centigrade increase in inlet temperatures on an 870bhp GTR during a full power run on the dyno.
This GTR intercooler kit is very comprehensive, supplied complete with all parts required, including mandrel bent 70mm pipework ( black only) to both throttle bodies, silicon hoses, all clips, bolts, and nuts together with comprehensive colour instructions. No cutting of the crash bar or any part of the bumper is necessary at all. Please note that a Nissan throttle body optimisation is recommended PRIOR to installation, and that POST installation the car should be mapped with either the Cobb Accessport or EcuTek software which are pre-programmed with a setting for the Forge intercooler.
