The Forge Motorsport Front Mount Intercooler for Ford Focus ST 2.0t EcoBoost Engines decreases engine intake air charge temperature for significantly improved performance.
This intercooler for the Ford Focus ST250 is a real example of British Engineering at its best. Designed with a greater surface area and cooling efficiency than the stock core this is a real performer.
The main reason for increasing the size of an intercooler is to reduce the incoming air charge temperature, as this is directly related to engine power. Cooler air is denser, and thereby has greater oxygen content, resulting in a better burn in the combustion chamber, ultimately resulting in an increase in power. For a given turbo charged engine where the characteristic or specification remain unchanged other than varying the inlet temperature, there is a proven formula to calculate the relationship between the power produced and inlet temperature.
On a typical standard car, typical gains are around 18bhp - that's more power than you get from a catback exhaust for this application. Intake Air Charge Temperature drops are in the order of 20 deg C at the intercooler outlet, compared to the stock core, indicating that the turbo does not have to work as hard, despite the fact the engine now makes more power.
