The efficiency of an intercooler in any turbocharged engine is absolutely crucial to the overall performance of the engine. Because turbochargers generate a tremendous amount of heat, it becomes necessary to drastically cool their charged output air before it enters the intake manifolds, and further along into the combustion chamber. Why? Colder air is more dense and contains more oxygen then warmer air. Because of this, the engine's management system can introduce a higher proportion of fuel into the mixture, which in turn creates more power. The specific design of an intercooler also plays an extremely important role in overall performance. It has to physically fit in the vehicle and provide an unobstructed air path between the turbocharger and the engine, all while cooling charge air temperatures by up to 50%. The Champion Motorsport intercooler upgrades for the 911 Turbo are simply the best-fitting and most functional intercoolers available today. Champion begins by reverse engineering the OEM intercooler to break it down into its positive and negative aspects. Once this is done, the components were re-drawn into the CAD system, where areas of restriction were clearly identified and improved using processes such as CFD (computational fluid dynamics), which test and verify air flow through the part. Lastly, an SLS model of the improved part was created to test fitment and also to create other kit components, such as hoses and hardware.
The results clearly show that bigger is not always better. The CMS intercoolers not only fit better then any other intercooler on the market but they also work better too. Made by Champion Motorsport. Fits 2014-2016 911 Turbo and Turbo S models (991 generation).
NOTE: When ordering, select if you have the stock or upgraded aftermarket IPD "Y" pipe. If you have the aftermarket IPD pipe (see related item below), Champion offers an identical kit which has IPD specific connections, which makes installation flawless for these two components.
