Intercooler Core Advantages
These intercooler cores are commonly used by many mr2 shops/vendors throughout the years. However, fitment, performance, quality, design details and how they're made are different and ours stand out from the rest.
After dealing with QC issues with ACS motorsports (IC core supplier which also supplies our competition...) rendering our newest IC core batch unusable which took 8 months to make, in February 2022, we have decided to CAD everything and to create/design our own intercooler cores. An universal MR2 intercooler core with detailed specifications, utilizing the biggest core possible, with consistency and quality in mind and made using the best manufacturing/design and quality control methods available at our disposal through our vetted manufactures
- Our aluminum end tanks will be casted from a mold for repeatability and consistency.
- We will be using the widest and largest intercooler core on the market coming in at 200mm width x 235mm length x 100mm thick.
- We have also shortened the inlet and outlet diameter lengths of the end tanks by around 10mm to account for a rare minority of 3SGTEs running into issues with the turbocharger being shifted very slightly from normal positions, resulting in the hot pipe being shifted away from the turbocharger outlet with no room for adjustment as the pipe touched the end tank's inlet inside the silicone hose coupler. Now there is significantly more room for adjustments. This advantage is exclusive to MR2Heaven cores only
- Better fitment and more adjustability/flexibility with intercooler pipes over other cores and more. That means our core will install cleaner and easier, and your pipes wont be forced to hit or rub against your X-brace, look off when connected to your turbocharger or hot pipe rubbing cold pipe etc. Often times, to be real, the fitment issues will prevent pipes to be even installed for a small majority of 3SGTE owners (around 10%, as their turbo outlet position sits slightly off normal positions). For those owners to install, they need a very tall silicone coupler that allows enough flex/room for the hot pipe to connect. That small 10% will be eliminated with our 2022 cores as they provide more room for you to adjust
- Our intercooler core will be fitted in molds before all the components are welded to ensure consistency and quality control
- We've also adjusted tolerances of our red and yellow mounting brackets to stick out past the 100mm thick core by 1.5mm only. This ensures the intercooler core is in its intended place while in the car and does not cause fitment issues like the bullet points above. Some manufactures randomly bend aluminum tabs and randomly weld them and they're extremely off.
- Our core mounting brackets were designed/reduced down to 2 repeatable dimension specific parts with simplicity in mind (As you can see the red and yellow brackets in our pictures).
- Our cores will be shipped in a foam padded enclosure to ensure it does not get damaged during transit
Intercooler Kit advantages
- Largest 9" Fan and lightweight aluminum shroud system (The biggest you can mount on this core to help maximize cooling! It gets better.
- Our 9" shroud design is backwards compatible with SPAL branded fans for the highest flow if needed. We are also the only MR2 company to offer SPAL fans with our products as of Feb 8, 2022 (the date i am writing this). From our own testing, our 12V/31AMP SPAL 9" fan upgrade flows around 40% more air than the budget common 9" fan out on the market (which we also offer as default option). They're virtually almost identical but SPAL is higher quality in everyway, designed and built heavy duty (4oz heavier, coming in at 2lbs 4oz) and sports a much powerful motor. To properly utilize the full potential of your SPAL fan, we recommend using our dedicated wiring harness to properly power it. SPAL truly makes the best fans money can buy and we highly recommend it
- SPAL branded fans are used on NASCAR, modern supercars, as well as many other high end automotive racing organizations/manufactures. Their motors are fully sealed, dust proof and water proof. Individually balanced for long life and high performance.
- Our default 9" fan is not a slacker and is also commonly used. it features the same high efficiency straight blade 9" fan design for maximum air flow just like SPAL - Also from our testing, more RPM & air flow than the curved blades variant of the common budget fans out there during our testing
- 3D Scanned intercooler core and computer aided design (CAD) block off plate and fan shroud helps divert proper and maximum air flow into the intercooler core from the side vent! No more misfits and inefficient designs. This allows us to create components for our kit that fits exactly as designed utilizing every millimeter surface area of the intercooler core. We used the best quality of light weight materials. There is no gaps and holes and blocking of the actual intercooler core like some kits out on the market which were designed out of guessing and tracing cardboard templates. We used a $20k 3D Scanner alone to help facilitate our design/CAD process.
- High Quality Constant Torque hose clamps ensures constant torque and helps prevent annoying popped hoses when compared to other clamps on the market. As far as we know as of 3/9/2021, we are the only vendor that offers this on our kits.
- High quality stainless steel hardware and high strength yellow zinc coated steel nylon lock nuts prevents rust and loose components under high vibration and loads, environmental factors and the most extreme use.
- Easily twist on different blow off valve flanges with our universal port system. This is only exclusive to MR2Heaven pipes.
- A set of Stainless Steel Cold Pipe and Hot Pipe for any generation 3SGTE of your choosing
- Optional MR2Heaven Fully interchangeable Stainless Steel BOV Flanges (Easily Change between OEM, HKS, Greddy and TiAL and blow off valve delete blow off valve flanges)
- Lightweight 9" aluminum Fan Shroud Kit (Block Off Plate, Fan, Fan Shroud)
- Choice of high flow SPAL 9" fan upgrade or our normal 9" fan
- Aluminum Side Mount Intercooler Core
- Premium Constant Torque Hose Clamps (not your common cheap T-Bolt clamps)
- Set of MR2Heaven multi layered and reinforced silicone hose couplers
- Hardware Kit
- Fits all GEN2/3/4/5 3SGTE on bottom mount turbo (example, CT26, CT20B, most bottom mount turbo kits)
- Plug and Play Setup. No modifications needed!
- This kit works extremely well with our dual fan shroud kit, significantly lowering air intake temperatures while possibly matching the SS theme with our mirror finished shroud. Click here
- Complete the SS Pipe collection with one of our 3 or 4" Intakes here
- OEM BOV flange works with OE GEN2/3 BOV, not OE GEN4 (That means you can throw a gen2/3 bov on a gen4 and it'll work, just cant throw a OE Gen4 BOV on the flange)
