Uprated front mounting intercooler for the VW T5 bus or van variants. Although significantly larger than the original intercooler, this unit is a direct plug in replacement requiring no additional hoses or pipework. With a larger front cross sectional area, the cooling/power recovery is improved. The unit offers a lower resistance, compared to OEM without adding turbo lag. On our own van we gained 10hp and 20 ft/lbs of torque with just the intercooler, and all who drive the vehicle since the installation have commented on how much better it feels.
For those that have used a tuning box, or have updated engine management software, this really is a must.

Do not use aggressive (acidic) car cleaning products, particularly traffic film remover solutions or shampoos to clean your intercooler, radiator or oil cooler. The use of these products can damage Forge Motorsport cooling systems and invalidate your warranty. These are often found at car washes. A light, warm, soapy solution (free of harsh acidic cleaning compounds) should be used to clean you cooler and thoroughly rinsed away. We recommend that you should inspect your product on a regular basis for bent and/or crushed fins. Any bent fins should be carefully straightened to allow ambient air to pass through the core face. At the time of installing your Forge radiator, an approved coolant must be used and added to the coolant system. Be sure you never mix coolant and always use distilled water.
