AAM Competition R-Line R35 GT-R Race Intercooler
CAD designed and developed with our GT1200/1400/1600-R Turbo Systems in mind, the AAM Competition GT-R R-Line Race Intercooler features the largest surface area, volume, and fin-count that we could possibly fit behind the bumper of the GT-R!
This single vertical-flow high density core measuring a massive 22.2” x 14” x 4.5” features CNC machined end tanks with smooth contours and one piece design to increase flow and reliability. The 3” inlets and outlets provide maximum air flow and eliminate the potential for bottlenecks.
The AAM Competition GT-R R-Line Race Intercooler dramatically decreases air temperatures reaching the GT-R's engine; therefore significantly increasing engine reliability on GT-R's equipped with larger turbochargers.
The AAM Competition GT-R R-Line Race Intercooler comes complete with the necessary couplers and brackets for a straight forward installation.
