As part of the expanding Abarth 500 product range, AIRTEC Motorsport is proud to launch their intercooler upgrade to offer increased performance through reduced charge temperatures in comparison to the original intercooler. This is particularly important to remapped examples.
The solution to replacing and improving the OEM hugely restrictive twin intercooler setup and lengthy pipework within the confines behind the bumper assembly is based upon a high flow, single-pass core design, that’s wider, taller and deeper than the originals. This offers a massive increase in frontal area and a huge increase in capacity, which allows it to make the most of the air flow provided. The pipework is also much shorter, which improves the spool time for the turbo and increases throttle response.
Despite this improvement, the kit fits neatly behind the original bumper, requires no trimming or cutting, and can be reverted back to standard with no issues. The comprehensive fitting kit includes all the correct fixtures and fittings.
