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.

Customers' comments

I have ordered a few parts from these guys over the past years, and always had an successful business with them. I live in Iceland and have to pay a few extra bucks for the shipping, so Aaron sends me email right away about it. I take care of it and receive the product a few days later.
Birkir Rafn All I can say is wow! This sway bar installed easily. The NM Engineering instructions are excellent. I could feel the difference even backing out of the garage. I started it out on setting 3 out of 4, but will be moving to the stiffest setting shortly. The Mini handled great stock, so I was a little skeptical about how much of a difference this bar would make. Boy am I glad I elected to give it a try. Completely worth the expense.
Loran Evans I installed the Cravenspeed "Big Pair"today. Huge difference, just what the F56 chassis needed. Well made and very easy to install.
