Peugeot 208 1.6 GTI Forge Motorsport Performance Front Mounting Intercooler
Brand New Genuine Forge Motorsport Performance Parts and Accessories
The stock intercooler on the 208 GTi is the same compromised side mount intercooler used on the 207 GTi so Forge know it’s not up to the job even on a stock car. On a remapped engine with the stock intercooler, Forge was seeing inlet temperatures of 105°C (215°F) – the highest Forge have recorded on any car ever! This has a hugely detrimental effect on power and torque.
Forge’s intercooler is a full replacement single pass (left to right) core which mounts to the stock crash bar in the car. The pipework supplied with Forge’s intercooler joins to the pipes that connect to the stock intercooler so installation is easy. The only cutting needed is to the ducting on the radiator to allow the pipework to pass through. All the silicon hoses, hard pipes, clips, bolts, nuts and jubilee clips needed to install the intercooler are included, along with full-colour installation instructions. Hoses are available in Red, Blue or Black. Please state at checkout which colour you require. If no colour is specified then Black will be sent.
Performance-wise, the car Forge used had a Superchips remap. Forge tested the stock intercooler and the Forge intercooler back to back on the same day and the increases were dramatic.
- Intake temperature dropped from 105°C to 45°C – a drop of 60°C
- Power went from 190bhp to 224 bhp – an increase of 34bhp
- Torque went from 222 lbft to 244 lbft – an increase of 22 lbft
You can look at the dyno graph comparison of the intercooler showing the increase in performance, but PLEASE REMEMBER this was specific to the car Forge had in for testing, and you may not get the same results from a stock or mildly tuned car.
All parts necessary for installation are included, together will full instructions.
We recommend all parts are fitted by a qualified mechanic to ensure the correct fitment, though this kit does include fitting instructions
