Much like your rubber brake lines, intercooler hoses expand under boost pressure. This causes a drop in pressure and that results in a loss of power. To combat this, most people replace the factory intercooler pipe connectors with silicone hoses or a new complete hard pipe. Agency Power has taken the Mitsubishi EVO X intercooler piping one step further and has released the all new 1 piece upper intercooler pipe kit. The pipe connects from the top of the front mount intercooler end tank and is 1 piece all the way to the turbo pipe. The 1 piece aluminum pipe features a bracket to secure the intercooler pipe in the factory location. Utilizing mandrel bends, we designed the pipe to have a smooth air flow path without any restrictions. When installed, the intercooler pipe kit will fit securely with plenty of room for the factory engine cover. This kit is available with a diameter of 3 inches for improved air flow on higher horsepower cars. By installing this pipe kit, you will maintain boost pressure more efficiently, pick up throttle response, and gain horsepower. As tested on a Mustang AWD Dyno with our short ram intake kit, this setup made almost 30 all wheel horsepower.
The pipe kit includes new silicone couplers and clamps for a secure and stylish look. The intercooler pipes are available in polished, which also matches our short ram intakes and suction pipes.
This part is a direct fit, however to retain your factory plastic radiator shroud, you will need to trim the inside for clearance.
