Product Details

Now with a larger core, redesigned end tanks, higher performance gains, stronger break-free fitment, improved inlet/outlets, and more in the battle to improve cooling and lower IATs!

The core has been increased by 137% over stock which is officially the largest IC that can be purchased with a bolt-in fitment. To accommodate this larger core design, all new cast end tanks have also been completely redesigned with improved and reinforced mounting points and incredible install accuracy. Getting this intercooler to fit required OCD levels of design and machining tolerances to accomplish. The result is a market leading 74% intake air temperature reduction, 8% less pressure drop, massive core volume, and the ultimate defense against heat soak.

The IE FDS (Flow Distribution System) has proven to distribute charge air uniformly across the inlet end of the core. In contrast to other intercoolers on the market which rely on natural airflow across the core, their FDS technology uses precisely shaped and placed fins cast into the intake plenum to fully take advantage of the large core volume effectively using the entire core. As a result, the IE FDS intercooler has been proven to reduce intake air temperatures more so than other units available, thus offering the largest power gains possible.


  • 137% increase core volume
  • 74% lower intake air temps
  • High-grip textured inlet/outlets
  • No-break install (super beefy)
  • Bolt down AC condenser mounts
  • Perfect radiator slip-fit
