The Short Stack intercooler core only raises the blower by one inch. This core will fit under any hood with no modifications. Temperature drops are between 50 and 90 degrees depending on blower rpm and boost level.
This amount of temperature drop allows a .2 drop in pulleys size. We recommend that a near stock GP run a 3.2 pulley, and GTP with rockers should be able to run a 3.1 pulley with no KR if O2s are tuned. Many users have run this combo with a 3.0 pulley and no KR, but we do not recommend this for anyone unless they are scanning their car regularly and do not have any KR.
We are now selling the 2nd run of our SS intercoolers and have the outlet moved forward ¼. We have found this increases cooling efficiency. This outlet design matches our machined intake and ported blower outlet design. While a ported blower and/or machined intake are not required, they will increase the performance of your SS intercooler core.
The Stage 2 intercooler core has undergone many revisions over the years. We've moved the outlet forward, lightened the core by a few pounds, changed the heat exchanger to a 20% denser core with larger inlet/outlet, improved machining quality, and lowered the price. It is made from billet aluminum and raises the blower 2.25. It will fit under a stock GP hood with no modifications and under aftermarket hoods with our cradle spacers. It sports temperature drops of 110-160 degrees depending on blower speed and boost level.
Pricing includes longer stainless bolts to hold down the blower.
Gaskets must be purchased separately.
SS core comes with 4 feet of 3/8" hose for core inlet/outlet.
Gen 5 M90s have the throttle body inlet higher than on the Gen 3 M90s, please email if you have questions about clearance issues when using a Gen 5 M90.
