The mountune high performance Alloy Intercooler upgrade includes everything you need to optimise the performance of your mk7 Fiesta ST and is the foundation for further power upgrades.
Using a 7-row extruded tube and fin core, the mountune alloy intercooler upgrade gives a marked improvement in both air charge temperature (ACT) and pressure drops, ensuring optimum charge air temperature and therefore power, is available from the excellent 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine.
Our alloy intercooler upgrade also maximises the available package space, while retaining the essential OE air management ducting for the OE cooling system.
The packaging for the OE intercooler and radiator on the mk7 Fiesta ST is very compact, leaving little space to effectively and safely install an upgraded intercooler.
The mountune alloy intercooler upgrade was engineered to retain the original Ford cooling pack or air ducting system. This helps maintain engine cooling temperatures thereby avoiding "over-heat" conditions that reduce engine power. Removal of the vehicle's original cooling pack and using a larger intercooler core could cause an increase in engine coolant temperature, inducing engine safety strategies that reduce engine power for protection.
Had both the charge pipe kit and intercooler fitted nearly 2 weeks ago so that I could take time to identify the differences from before and after. The difference is definitely noticeable in the fact that the car feels a lot more eager and the turbo seems to deliver boost earlier on in the Rev range. Also, with the white logo, it does look great behind the grill of a frozen white FiST. Overall, I think it’s a worthwhile upgrade and it’s another step to MR230 complete.
Picked up in person from FordFair, great service from the guys, fitted it myself which was very easy given it bolts up to the factory mount point. Fitted along with charge pipe upgrade as part of the road to MR230. Looks great through the bumper now, much better than the crusty original one. Definite improvement in turbo spool time and feels nicer to drive in general. Get one!
