As the originators of the stepped core design way back in 2006, Forge were best placed within the market to call on their vast expertise in order to deliver a direct fit intercooler that would enhance the performance potential of the 2.0 petrol turbo engine.
Their core offers a 31% increase in frontal area over stock (BMW Part no.17517617600) and a correspondingly large increase in volume of 41%.
Forge’s end tanks are cast aluminium, made from 3D printed prototypes that they manufactured ourselves in our dedicated R&D facility in Gloucester, UK. The bar and plate design they have used comes after months of testing different core designs and opting for the core with best internal and external airflow.
