I have now installed 2 CVFab race core intercoolers on my car. The first being a test unit and now the “final” product. The test unit had perfect fit, great build quality, and excellent performance. Even tho i was told the final product would have a “better” performing core... i didnt believe it could be much better. I was wrong.

Build quality... its built like a tank. The mounting points are rock solid and also has some bushings to keep shock/vibration stress off of each point. Cast end tanks... not welded sheetmetal.

Fitment... its an absolute beast. CVFab has managed to produce an intercooler that takes up every bit of usable space, and maintain perfect fitment.

Performance... Jason Anderson has all the data so ill leave that for him to post up. But i will say that it is pretty amazing. And yes, the core being used in the final product does actually perform better than the test unit i have been using for the past few months.

Bottom line... if you are in the market for an intercooler, this is the IC you should be looking at. Top notch fit, finish, and performance for under $500? Its really a no brainer.

Silver is the test unit. Black is the final product.

Thanks for the extended test and write up! It's great to see more support for this platform, and CVF has been great. Definitely looks like frontal area has been maximized!

Very nice intercooler! How much of a gap between the intercooler and A/C condenser? How did the new intercooler affect the performance of the heat transfer of the coils and radiator that are now located behind it?? Do you recommend any modification to the OEM pull thru fans and/or fan controls, etc.?
Thanks

No adverse impact noted. Have sold and installed hundreds of these gorgeous, beastly monsters.

Here in FL we try not to let our consumers buy anything less than the CVFab Race Cores!
