Forge Motorsport Intercooler Upgrade for Porsche 997 Gen 2

Following on from the huge success in developing intercoolers for the Porsche 996 and 997 Gen1, Forge just had to take a look at the 2nd generation Porsche 997.
As previously, Forge started with improving airflow through the intercoolers with the use of enlarged 60mm silicone hoses, and a redesign of the intercooler end tanks. Then with the charge air sorted, they looked at the cooling air that passes over the intercooler. In a similar fashion to the 996, testing showed that the original OEM ducting performed brilliantly. So, satisfied that it was up to the specification needed, we thought we should aim to make a true directly replacement kit, by designing the intercoolers to install perfectly with all the OEM mountings. The new intercoolers are similar in dimension to the OEM units, but are measurably thicker. The real improvement came with the complete re-design of the intercooler core, after testing proved a bar and plate design to be more thermally efficient in this installation.
In tests, the Forge unit managed creditable increase of 20hp. This installation allows the engine to produce more power and torque throughout the rev range, and of course with the engine running cooler, engine longevity should also be improved.
The use of the original ducting and mountings results in very tidy and efficient installation.
