A key to making more power on any turbocharged engine is the addition of a high performance air-to-air intercooler. This part in the simplest of terms, cools the air going from the turbo into your engine, much the same as a radiator cools the water inside the engine, by transferring the excess heat way using multiple passages through a core. An ALTA intercooler fits easily to the front of your MINI to maximize cooling.
The ALTA front mount intercooler features cast aluminum end tanks, with smooth and perfectly contoured internals to create unimpeded airflow and equal distribution of air throughout the intercooler. No sharp corners or multifaceted cores here.
The ALTA FMIC features double the air volume of the OEM core and has 3 times the ambient cooling surface area! This all translates to cooler temps and more horsepower! And yes this is bigger than the competitors intercoolers!
Check out the charts tab to see multiple dyno runs of MINIs with various part setups. The ALTA intercooler produces an easy 10 to 15 horsepower right out of the box.
We do not compromise performance by making our intercooler smaller just to save install time. Competitors like to scare you into thinking our intercooler is difficult to install. With only some minor trimming of some non-important plastic, you will gain more power and have a perfectly centered intercooler. You can see how The ALTA intercooler perfectly tucks behind the bumper beam and bumper.
Our intercooler fills the entire mouth of the MINI bumper and is designed to is designed to utilize as much of the ambient air coming through the bumper as possible.
Every ALTA intercooler is powder coated to further protect your intercooler from the elements making it look awesome for years to come. Our intercoolers come in two finish options, a bright silver or stealth black powder coat.
