Product Details

Compared to the original version, the Mk2 Charge Cooler is 15% smaller, the pre-rad is 88% bigger, and the inlet & outlet internals are different to aid better air flow. The water reservoir is now a different design to stop any aeration that might occur in the water system. The air-con is still retained.

We used the opportunity to put the new charge cooler system through its paces. 

Result are as follows;

1st session
Track time 10 minutes
Highest ACT’s 43 degree
Ambient Temp 9 degrees

2nd session
Track time 20 minutes
Highest ACT’s touched 53, but this was behind traffic (with no air getting to the pre-rad), reduced to 47 degrees
Ambient Temp 13 degrees

3rd session
Track time 10 minutes
Highest ACT’s 45 degrees
Ambient Temp 14 degrees

On the run down lap the recovery rate was excellent -  by the time the car got back into the paddock the ACT’s had reduced to 30 degrees.
