VR Performance has developed this upgraded Intercooler Kit to vastly improve the performance of the Ford Raptor and F150 trucks with the 3.5L EcoBoost engine. Being that the 3.5L is turbocharged, upgrading the intercoolers on these vehicles is an extremely important if you want to get the most performance. Why is that?  As air goes through the turbocharger and compresses, it gets hot very fast.  This increase in air temperature causes the oxygen density to drop, resulting in a loss of performance. By replacing the factory OEM intercooler with a larger and more efficient intercooler, the warm charge air becomes much denser and oxygen rich, resulting in more power.

The Factory OEM intercooler on the Raptor and F150 is located behind the front bumper in a location that does not allow adequate air flow. This coupled with its small core size makes it highly susceptible to heat soak, especially when pushing the vehicle hard or just driving in hot environments. The Vivid Racing Intercooler Upgrade kit fixes this by replacing the factory OEM intercooler and relocating it behind the grille with a highly efficient bar and plate aluminum intercooler. Locating the intercooler behind the grille provides not only improved air flow but room for an intercooler core that is over 55% larger than stock.

The Vivid Racing Upgraded Intercooler has integrated aluminum high volume end tanks compared to the OEM intercooler, which uses plastic end tanks.  The aluminum end tanks are designed to improve air flow and help dissipate heat more efficiently.  Each kit comes with mounting brackets and aluminum intercooler piping that has been powder coated black for sleek and durable finish. The factory electronic blow-off valve is retained and kept as a fully closed loop system to keep you going in any condition. The kit also includes all necessary hardware and couplers for a clean installation.

This upgrade is a must have for Ford Raptor and F150 owners who want the most out of their truck or plan to run aftermarket bumpers and accessories as some of these modifications reduce air flow and/or require the factory intercooler to be moved. The Vivid Racing Intercooler Upgrade doesn't just stand out from behind your grille, it gives you increased performance for whatever driving condition you throw at it!
