Process West Verticooler Top Mount Intercooler Black 2015-2021 WRX
Here, you are looking at the Process West Verticooler Top Mount Intercooler Black for the 2015-2021 WRX.
Why opt to go with the Verticooler?
Designed and engineered with rapid air-charge cooling and flow-path efficiency as the key objectives, Verti-Cooler is a revolutionary take on Subaru intercooler design that takes turbocharger cooling to a new and previously un-seen level, guaranteeing the best performance and improved engine durability.
In most conventional top-mount intercooler designs, the intercooler lays flat on top of the engine. The air is forced through the scoop’s ducting and makes a 90-degree turn into the intercooler.
The Verti-Cooler combines the advantages of a large and free-flowing Process West core (400mm flow length, 205mm stack height, 120mm thick) with a design that mounts the new intercooler at a 15-degree, near vertical angle in the engine bay.
Packaged with a new hood duct design that force-feeds external airflow straight onto the intercooler fins, there is now a highly efficient air exit path courtesy of the Verti-Cooler mounting angle that flows all of this (now heated) air back down through the engine bay and out the underside of the car through the transmission tunnel for a shallow, cool, and low restriction exit-path. Compare then the near on 90-degree angle that the air must turn with the stock intercooler setup in place, and the advantages of the Process West Verti-Cooler design become clear.
