The B58 engine needs this intake charge cooler if you're getting into serious tuning or track use.
The factory cooler is adequate for the expected usage of the car - regular street driving with the occasional full throttle runs. But remember that the engine computer is constantly evaluating and adjusting boost and torque output based on intake air temperature. Repeated hard use, especially in a track environment, will overwhelm the stock cooling system and lead to heat soak. Higher intake air temperatures will force the ECU to dial back timing and boost, dropping power output or causing limp mode.
The solution is a larger cooler but the B58 layout doesn't allow for a simple swap - the cooler is part of the intake manifold. CSF partnered with several well-known intake specialists to develop a new intake manifold with a cooler that has more surface area, capacity, and less pressure drop. More heat management means the cooler will keep intake air temps lower and for a longer time. It will also recover more quickly when heat saturated. The new top-mount cooler is still water cooled using all of the original connections but it can now handle more heat before the ECU steps in.
This is a direct replacement for the stock charge air cooler but also includes some additional features aimed at racers and tuners - external fuel rail, 1/8" NPT ports for nitrous or methanol, and a sensor pad with 1/8" NPT ports. All of these are optional and can be blocked off when not needed, meaning you can bolt this CSF cooler on for a 1:1 upgrade, experience the power gains and reliability, and then plan the rest of your build.
Available as raw aluminum, black, or any other custom color or finish you can think of. The billet aluminum version will be limited in production before a cast version is released (likely 2022).
