Details

Helix has developed a new concept in intercooling for the Gen2  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 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.

The Helix Front Mount Intercooler is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and will fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years:

Customers' comments

Ordered for the first time. My order arrived quickly and packaged with care. The headlight rings were easy to install and so were the tail light trim. Amazing product. Ordering again for sure. Thank you out motoring!

Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

I needed a piece of clutch line for my '02 Cooper and you had it brand new for the best price. Bought and received in a reasonable amount of time, and it came in perfect condition. Put it on the car and that was that! Happy days ever since. Thanks again to the team at Outmotoring, keep up the good work.
