Alta Performance Amp-Eng-300bk Intercooler Diverter Black R53
ALTA Performance has developed an aggressive
intercooler air diverter for your Supercharged Mini Cooper. While
the stock hood scoop and plastic intercooler diverter may do a
reasonable job for the average MINI buyer, the more
serious enthusiast will appreciate our simple, inexpensive way to
improve air flow and increase efficiency of the stock
The ALTA Performance powder coated diverter
replaces the flimsy plastic factory unit. It is both taller and
wider than the factory unit, thus forcing a larger volume of cool
air over the intercooler surface. This increase in airflow will
lower intake temperatures. The diverter will seal smoothly to the
under hood surface without damaging the finish.
To add to the appearance of your new air diverter
ALTA includes new intercooler hose couplers. Made from
high temp silicone, these couplers will replace the small rubber
hose connectors on either side if your intercooler. Silicone
couplers are available in glossy Red, Blue and Black.
For high temperature situations, where maximum cooling is
desired we have built in a water sprayer jet with a dual spray
pattern. When activated the sprayer will douse the front and rear
sections of the intercooler with a high-pressure mist of water. As
the water evaporates from the intercooler surface it will increase
the efficiency of your intercooler. You can activate this while on
the move or at a stop light for maximum horsepower.
Testing has shown consistent post intercooler inlet air
temperature reductions by 20 degrees with just the larger diverter.
Adding the water spray system reduces post intercooler inlet
temperatures over 25 degrees! Expect even bigger results in high
speed and hot weather conditions.
