I went to the track the day after installing a CVF intercooler on the Ecoboost Mustang

    It was a cool night at Orlando Speedworld Dragway last night (mid to low 70s F with low humidity) and I happen to just install an aftermarket intercooler from CVF on my car the day before; so I thought I would go to the track and find out how the intercooler upgrade works out:




    I had the gauge mode on the dash screen the whole time and I noticed that the intake air temperatures usually stayed around 5-10F above ambient temperature while the car is moving down the track. Even when the car was heatsoaking at around 100F at the waiting stage lanes, the IAT (intake air temperature) would start dropping down like a rock close to the outside temperature as soon as the car races down the track. I highly recommend an intercooler upgrade for Ecoboost Mustangs.

    All the videos below shows the numbers when the car was bone stock.


    Here is a video that was a couple of weeks ago, it was also around the 70s but it was more humid:




    Here is an even older video a few months back, but the car had less than 2000 miles on it then (compared to 11,500 miles now), the track conditions match a little better:




    **Watch these two older videos and compare trap speeds with those in the latest video**


    Hope that helps!



    Just a bonus, here is a video that shows me racing the car (it had only 800+ miles on it then) the first time at the track, it was very cold at the track though.

    It is 3:15 gears, the car is the base model with no premium or performance package.


    I went to the track again yesterday (11/13/2019), the weather was in the high 60s with low humidity and I was getting into the 13.5x on two of the four races.

    I think that in the 40s or 50s Fahrenheit the car with this intercooler should be able to get 13.3x with a good launch on street tires.
