Forge Motorsport Intercooler Kit + Red Hoses For Peugeot 208 GTi 1.6 THP TurboHAZ-176
Forge Motorsport Intercooler
Hose Color: Red
Brand: Forge Motorsport
Notes: Machine or Polished Finish with Red Hose
The stock intercooler on the 208 GTi is the same compromised side mount intercooler used on the 207 GTi so we know it is not up to the job even on a stock car. On a remapped engine with the stock intercooler, we were seeing inlet temperatures of 105 deg C (215 deg F) – the highest we have recorded on any car ever! This has a hugely detrimental effect on power and torque.
Our intercooler is a full replacement single pass (left to right) core which mounts to the stock crash bar in the car. The pipework supplied with our intercooler joins to the pipes that connected to the stock intercooler so installation is easy. The only cutting needed is to the ducting on the radiator to allow the pipework to pass through. All the silicone hoses, hard pipes, clips, bolts, nuts and jubilee clips needed to install the intercooler are included, along with full-colour installation instructions.
Performance wise the car we used had a Superchips remap. We tested the stock intercooler and our intercooler back to back on the same day and the increases were dramatic
Intake temperature dropped from 105 deg C to 45 deg C - a drop of 60 deg
Power went from 190bhp to 224 bhp – an increase of 34bhp
Torque went from 222 lbft to 244 lbft – an increase of 22 lbft
You can look at the dyno graph comparison of the intercooler showing the increase in performance, but PLEASE REMEMBER this was specific to the car we had in for testing, and you may not get the same results from a stock or mildly tuned car.
All parts necessary for installation are included, together will full instructions.
*Please note: The majority of Forge Motorsport products are processed straight away, but occasionally some applications have to be special ordered, which can usually take up to 4 weeks. If there will be any delays in your order you will be informed within 24 hours.
