PD Notes: Intercoolers are one of the first mods we recommend to people that are looking to mod their Ecoboost. The factory units are woefully inadequate and can heat soak very easily. It is very common for an Ecoboost with a factory intercooler to see 150+ degree charge temps after one 3rd gear pull. This is with outside temperatures being in the 90’s. Generally your street intercoolers (made by cv fab, garret, cobb, etc.) are a direct replacement for the factory intercooler while retaining the factory grill shutters. These tend to work well for the everyday car below 500hp that doesn’t do any real track racing, or extended high speed pulls. For vehicle in more extreme climates, wanting to make big power, or vehicles that are going be doing track day sessions we highly recommend the larger Race intercooler, or adding methanol injection to your vehicle to drop your charge temperatures below ambient.
Direct bolt-on replacement
Computer-modeled, CVF-branded cast end tanks ensure significantly better airflow efficiency than welded aluminum counterparts
Over 200% more core volume than stock (21″ x 15″ x 4″)
TIG-welded bar-and-plate construction
Larger ID (inside diameter) of hot-side and cold-side connections allow for increased airflow
CVF Lifetime Warranty
LESS HEAT, MORE POWER
The CVF Race Intercooler for 2015+ Ford Mustang EcoBoost is a direct fit replacement that is over 200% larger than the stock unit, featuring a core size of 21″ x 15″ x 4″. As the charts above indicate, during independent testing we’ve observed a reduction of 92 degrees in Charge Air Temperature where it matters: on the street, and not at the dyno (the same vehicle under similar conditions).
EXCEPTIONAL CONSTRUCTION FOR MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY
Manufactured from top-grade aluminum, the CVF Race Intercooler features a TIG-welded bar-and-plate core design for maximum durability and computer-modeled, fully cast end tanks to ensure better airflow efficiency than the competition’s welded aluminum end tanks. Additionally, the computer-aided design optimizes the flow of air, minimizing pressure loss.

Charge pipes are not a power adder, but they do make installation of larger aftermarket intercoolers much easier. OEM flange charge pipes will work with the factory bypass valve as well as bypass valve adapters like the GFB and Boomba spacers. The CVF charge pipes with the Tial flange can be used with the Tial Bov or the Turbosmart Raceport. The CVF Charge pipes with the HKS Flange can only be used with the HKS SQV. These are larger and vent more air. Which is beneficial when using aftermarket turbochargers.
Bov's are generally a personal prefrence mod. It's about what sound you like. All of the bov's are generally going to perform similarly on the OEM Flange. If you are planning on swapping out your turbo to a larger aftermarket unit i would upgrade to charge pipes with a TiAL flange to allow the use of bov with a larger diameter valve like the Turbosmart Raceport. **For BOV's that require a boost refrence to work. We recommond the Turbosmart Boost Refrence adapter to make the install easier. The removal of the factory electronic bov will cause a P0035 check engine light to show. This will not impact how the vehicle drives or performs in any way. If you would like a BOV upgrade without a check engine light the Turbosmart EM BOV is what you want**
