Product Description

Helix R56 Intercooler. Helix is the proud innovator of the world's first MINI Cooper Stepped-Core Intercooler (SCIC). The Helix SCIC has a bigger frontal ambient face and a thicker-than-stock core that seals better to the radiator  and fan shroud. The cast end tanks have exact factory charge pipe angles. The latest revision has greatly improved airflow through the end tanks and features a greater fin density than our previous intercoolers--It's the highest fin density on the market!  From this they have achieved the best-ever thermal transfer and temperature recovery rate. The core of the Helix SCIC flows 250 horsepower with only a 0.5PSI pressure drop! Installation is relatively straight forward and requires no cutting, drilling or permanent modifications to your MINI. It fits the later MINIs with the extra crash support without cutting or modification, but with any aftermarket item there might need to be some minor fitting. All Helix intercoolers now come with integrated mounting tabs that utilize the stock rubber bushings to soft mount the cooler directly to the chassis.

Wondering if you can install this your self? Of course you can, see the video below!

    Looks almost like jewelry. My installer was expecting to need to trim the bumper. It fit incredibly well, just like the stock piece.
