The AIRTEC intercooler is bolt on HP by lowering the charge air temperatures. A remapped car has increased power by ecu changes that raise boost pressure and other parameters. This increase in boost pressure raise intake temps and power loss soon follows. By fitting a bigger intercooler, you lower these intake temps, in turn increasing hp and making your engine safer.

Airtec Test results – Tim’s 233.3 bhp (Airtec cooled) Tuned Mini R53 @ Amd rolling road 10th May 2013 – Note, Results below were with bonnet closed on every run.

Standard Intercooler – Peak power 204.9 bhp & 161.1 Ib/ft

  • Run 1 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 150 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 123 degree
  • Run 2 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 152 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 130 degree
  • Run 3 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 155 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 135 degree
  • Conclusion – the standard intercooler on a tuned Mini just doesn’t work, most owners know this, here’s the proof for other owners that didn’t know.

Competitors Intercooler 50mm core (Note, this version didn’t have Air diverter scoop) – Peak power 216.0 bhp & 171.4 Ib/ft

  • Run 1 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 124 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 66 degree
  • Run 2 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 131 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 67 degree
  • Run 3 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 140 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 89 degree
  • Conclusion – This intercooler worked much better than standard, but we feel the 50mm tube and fin core still couldn’t handle highly tuned Mini’s intake temps.

Airtec Intercooler 60mm core – Peak power 233.3.0 bhp & 190.5 Ib/ft

  • Run 1 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 130 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 44 degree
  • Run 2 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 137 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 47 degree
  • Run 3 -Temperature Into intercooler from charger 149 degree & Out of Intercooler into engine 49 degree
  • Conclusion – The Airtec 60mm bar and plate core works really well and keeps temps below 50 degree’s
