    TurboKits.com Intercooler Upgrade - 20 HP and 23 Ft Lbs at the Wheels!

    After countless hours of design and months of testing our CLA 250 Front Mount Intercooler Upgrade Kit is ready for the masses! We're talking 20 HP and 23 Ft Lbs of torque at the wheels over the heat soaked stock unit, we're talking 50% decrease in air intake temps (AITs) resulting in not only more, but safer power for the motor. The turbo loves it, the ECU loves it and you will definitely love this new found power! As a matter of fact, the ECU loves the cooler charge so much, that is allows gains of 50 Wheel HP, yes that's 5 - 0 Wheel HP in the higher RPMs! (If the DYNO hadn't proved it, we wouldn't have believed it ourselves).

    Our Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Front Mount Intercooler Kit (FMIC) starts with a huge 24.0"x11.78"x3.0" bar and plate core. The leak tested core utilizes the same fin height for both internal and external rows with the external fins being louvered and offset from the internal fins. While this design has better heat transfer capabilities, pressure drop can increase. Normally, we would use plain style fins for the internal passages, especially on such a long core (24" long), however, we were able to help with the pressure drop by increasing the fin height from 0.25" to 0.375", resulting in outstanding cooling characteristics while maintaining minimal pressure drop. To further disperse the turbo air charge evenly across the entire core, we cast an internal splitter in the end tanks which also increases velocity. What is the result? A 50% reduction in air intake temps, gains reaching to 25HP and 25TQ above a heat soaked stock unit, and optimized engine efficiency through a colder, denser air inlet charge which the stock ECU will account for. Real gains of 50+ HP above 4500 RPM! All from an intercooler upgrade that is unmatched in performance and value!

    Ok I want it, but what about installation? I don't want to tear my car apart!
    - Don't worry, once the bumper is removed (very easy), the intercooler can be installed in roughly an hour. Actually, the DYNO testing and installation of our FMIC was done without unstrapping the car from the DYNO! Not only did we do this to prove the ease of installation, but also to guarantee the most accurate DYNO results. It also shows how easy it it to return to stock if you ever needed.

    so are the gains solely based on the intercooler only and a stock ecu? No piggy back/tune was done when installing the new intercooler?

    Bad ass 😊
    Interesting "resonance" at 5250rpm for the particular engine regardless of inlet dynamics

    Yes, 100%, bone stock car, nothing done but the FMIC, FMIC was swapped on the DYNO so all before and after runs were done within an hour or so of each other. It's just about as accurate test as you can perform

    Na, stock turbo is too small for 300WHP. We do not have any tests yet of the intercooler with just a piggy back as we wanted the tests and the marketing information to honestly reflect gains on a stock car. In all reality, due to how fast the stock unit heat soaks, the intercooler should be your first upgrade. If you have a tuner, I bet the intercooler is heat soaking twice as bad with the extra boost.

    No cutting of the bumper (there is a small plastic tab between the intercooler and radiator that needs to be cut out, maybe 2sq inches. But it's tucked way behind and doe not show. The bumper and anything showing/painted, etc does not need modification). The kit comes with full instructions, it is a very simple install. Depending on location shipping will be between $25-$50.

    Ok, so if I want to get maximum HP gains.
    I get the cooler.
    Can I pair it with a piggyback VR tune?
    The tune itself brings me to about 245whp
    Then paired with the cooler that's about 295whp at 4,500 rpm

    Then if I use the upgraded turbo that will be coming out soon, the car will be able To get way over 300whp easily right?


    If so, I may save up my monies for some of these new toys
