The GRS Motorsport Chargecooler is for the user that demands some serious cooling capability, for example, track, hot weather, and high performance / high bhp applications. Like the GRS Intercooler, the Chargecooler also cools the boosted air (making it denser - which is a good thing!) which in turn allows the engine to run at a better efficiency and therefore produce more power. The GRS Chargecooler does an even better job at cooling than the intercooler by using cold water to cool the boosted air rather than air. In testing, the GRS Chargecooler showed an 8bhp increase on top of the GRS Intercooler (which gives an additional 8bhp also), this gives a net increase of 16bhp! The price includes everything needed for the conversion including reservoir, water pump, radiator, chargecooler, fixings and hoses.
Hoses are available in other colors. Please check out ECSTuning for more color options.
All Mini Charge coolers are now powder coated as standard, at no extra charge.
Satin Black will be the standard color.
GRS Motorsport Intercooler
Ambient temperature during test 13°C, Inlet Air Temperature 44°C
GRS Motorsport Chargecooler
Ambient temperature during test 19°C, Inlet Air Temperature 40°C
Tested on track, maximum engine revs used 7000rpm, boost pressure 15.5psi. Note the effectiveness of the chargecooler over even an enlarged intercooler. Ambient temps were higher during the chargecooler testing yet inlet temps still remained lower than when tested with an enlarged intercooler
