We took one of the very first UK Mini R56’s produced and immediately set to work to improve the OEM intercooler. We did this with the first ever ground breaking innovative L Shape intercooler core design.
Many other companies simply copied this design, but Forge still remain the clear market leader due the exhaustive core testing undertaken in the development stages, we were not content with any air core. The Forge Motorsport development team tested 4 different constructions of air core before choosing the final stuffed fin stepped design intercooler for the 2007 onwards models (R56/R57) BMW Mini Cooper S Turbo.
As a reduction in intake air temperature increases the density of the charge mixture within the combustion cylinder, any temperature reductions will equate to more power. This intercooler is constructed using a combined 80/40mm high thermal efficiency core, with a 250% larger surface area and a 125% thicker base core, to achieve the best possible results.
In fact, even in relatively low road speeds/air velocities, our intercooler was able to better the OEM unit by 9°C, with greater improvements being achievable during greater speeds during track testing. The replacement intercooler is supplied with all the mountings to allow ease of installation.

Do not use aggressive (acidic) car cleaning products, particularly traffic film remover solutions or shampoos to clean your intercooler, radiator, or oil cooler. The use of these products can damage Forge Motorsport cooling systems and invalidate your warranty. These are often found at car washes. A light, warm, soapy solution (free of harsh acidic cleaning compounds) should be used to clean you cooler and thoroughly rinsed away. We recommend that you should inspect your product on a regular basis for bent and/or crushed fins. Any bent fins should be carefully straightened to allow ambient air to pass through the core face. At the time of installing your Forge radiator, an approved coolant must be used and added to the coolant system. Be sure you never mix coolant and always use distilled water.
This warranty does not apply to any defect in the goods arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or any third party, use otherwise than as recommended by the supplier, failure to follow the supplier’s instructions, or any alteration or repair carried out without the supplier’s approval.
