Helix has developed a new concept in intercooling for the R56 MINI. The Helix Stepped Intercooler design has a bigger frontal ambient face combined with thicker-than-stock core that seals off to the radiator fan/shroud. The cast end tanks have factory charge pipe angles.
Installation will involve removal of the R56's front air dam, then removal of stock intercooler. Next secure the new intercooler and remount the front air dam. No cutting, drilling or other modifications needed. It's a clean fit. No ECU flags or error codes...just cooler intake air.
The core of the Helix Stepped Intercooler has increased fin density and will flow 250 horsepower with only a 0.5PSI pressure drop. That translates to cooler intake temperatures with a slight reduction in pressure.
With this intercooler, under high-performance driving your R56 will be less prone to heat-soak, leading to increased performance and sustained power.
