Sonic Intercooler Package

Intercooling - Sonic Intercooler Package
Intercooling - Sonic Intercooler Package
Pre-Order Item
This Intercooler package will add power by simply keeping the charge temps down. The stock intercooler is fine for a few seconds until it heat soaks, then the power will decline rapidly. This kit includes powder-coated mandrel bent aluminum charge tubes, silicone couplers, stainless T-Bolt clamps, and of course the custom front mount intercooler itself. This kit will replace your stock charge pipes and intercooler.

We now offer our intercooler kit in two versions. 

Standard: This is our standard intercooler package that includes the charge pipes, intercooler, and all needed couplers and t-bolt clamps. This version does not require PCM tuning.

Larger Throttle Body Kit: This the standard intercooler package plus our Sonic larger throttle body kit. You can read about the larger throttle body kit here. The larger throttle body will need additional PCM tuning or a PCM update

Stock core dimensions:
24" x 5 1/8" x 2 1/2"

ZZP core dimensions:
23" x 6" x 4"
This package fits all trim level Sonic's from 2012 to 2016, 2017+ cars may require some trimming of plastics but otherwise will fit. Product update 6.1.2021: Kit updated with new charge pipes. Now fits RS models with no trimming. 

Adds 10+ horsepower, but more over time at WOT because it will not heat soak like the stock intercooler will.

The Review

It does pull more through the power band, a power that you can feel. Another addition to the build.

The Review

The intercooler is beefier than of the OEM, I can say that the car keeps pulling throughout the rpm range

Just What (I and You) Needed

Start to finish. Removal was a pain. Unless you have a hydraulic lift and even then, I think you’ll have to cut some of the pipes off. Once the pipes are off, I started to install from turbo side. **Note** look under the car there will be a bolt that sticks out far on the transmission, if not paying attention they will come in contact and it’ll be a pain to fix it once all the pieces are together. **Note** you’ll most probably need a non-fouler, for the o2 sensor. CEL Code P0420. Make sure you have all your drill bits, I can’t remember but 1/2 is not big enough you need one slightly larger. Now for the sound and little pep in power, I can tell slowly that the car is getting to a potential, of wanting to be a keeper project.

Solid upgrade, definitely changes the character of the car

My main complaints are that the hoses and clamps are not labeled, it takes some trial and error to figure out what goes where, and the clamps will still have you guessing if you got it right.. If the instructions were more detailed beyond disassembly of the factory system, maybe with pictures it would be ideal. Beyond that, the power difference is noticeable in how the car wants to go more when you accelerate.

So intercooler

Great product, with easy to understand instructions. Looks wonderful behind the grill of my Chevy Sonic. Zzp coming though as expected.
