EcoBoost Mishimoto Intercooler Kit
Improve the performance of your 2.3L EcoBoost Mustang by replacing the intercooler with the larger Mishimoto intercooler kit. The stock intercooler is good for individuals leaving their EcoBoost stock, but there are many places that the stock intercooler can be improved. Decreasing the intake air temp will improve performance by creating a more dense air charge. Denser and colder air will improve the performance by allowing the engine to produce more horse power and torque.
Mishimoto increases the intercooler core size by 58% to help decrease the air charge temperature created by the turbo. This increased core size translates into a 25% increase in internal core volume and 165% increase in external fin surface area over the stock unit! This increase in size allows up to a 35 degree reduction in air intake temperature. This intercooler kit features a slick silver finish, with wrinkle black aluminum pipes. All piping is mandrel-bent to eliminate restrictive bends and improve air flow. The hot side pipe incorporates a CNC machined bypass valve flange that will accept stock or stock style blow off valves.

Install was easy, it does involve taking the bumper off but not really that big of a deal. Takes longer to do this part then the install of the intercooler. Everything fit good. The clamp included that holds the boot to the turbo compressor housing is very small. Ended re-using the stock on at this location. No big deal. That was the only one that did not fit correctly. This was only change made to car (at the time) and made a noticeable difference. No more lag and also no more heat soaking.
