Forge Motorsport uprated intercooler for Nissan Juke

Gloucestershire-based Forge Motorsport may be better known for its
race-quality componentry for the more fire-breathing cars in Nissan's
line-up, like the R35 GT-R, but it hasn't stopped the respected
engineering outfit creating similarly sublime components for the
somewhat more attainable DIG-T Juke. The latest of many components in
the pipeline is a race-quality intercooler for the 1.6 turbo engine.

Forge's design team began by looking at how to improve airflow through
the intercooler to achieve maximum efficiency. After highlighting
several compromises with the original design, the team started from
scratch, using larger pipework, custom formed silicone hoses and a
complete re-design of the intercooler's end tanks. All of these proved
in testing to lower the temperature of the charge air when compared to
the standard part.

After analysing locations for the new part, repeated dyno tests
revealed that the factory had got the position spot on. With the
decision made to utilise the stock location, but to significantly
increase core size, a very careful and clever bit of packaging had to be
carried out to allow the new Forge part to install precisely on the OEM
mountings and fit subtly behind the stock bumpers, without any obvious
external modification. Not only is the new 'cooler much larger than the
part it replaces, it also utilises a much more efficient type of
intercooler core that offers yet more thermal efficiency.

Under testing, the Forge unit managed an incredible reduction in intake
temperature of up to 20° centigrade which, combined with reduced
pressure-loss, allows the engine to produce more power and torque
throughout the rev range. As cooler engines also tend to last much
longer, the part has a practical application to add to its performance
credentials.

This upgraded intercooler has been designed to work perfectly on any
standard Juke, and is ideal for vehicles that are used for towing or
will be further tuned at a later date. In fact, when tested on a car
running Litchfield Stage 2 ECU software, there was an additional gain of
15+ bhp after installing the intercooler, proving how well it works in
conjunction with other modifications.

The unit is priced at £499.00 + VAT.

Would be nice if there was the pipe work as well.
Also they haven't stated how capable these are yet, as buyers who upgrade intercoolers normally go further with maps and turbo upgrades later on as the Bug has bitten

I must confess seeing your post about larger inter cooler has got me thinking about my DCI. And if it would benefit. I already plan on the bluefin once run in if Abbey haven't sorted anything for the diesel by then. As I know nothing on this type of mod. I will be seeking advice on a larger inter cooler forit.

The intercooler is available from Part Box, there is a review on their website. Available for all DIG-T Variants. COST going to need deep pockets for this one £628.74

Thanks for the reply Gadget:) Damn, I was looking for one to go into my facelift DCI, are there any others available that you're aware of?

Damn! Why do they not like the diesels! There's everything for the DIG-Ts but nothing for diesels! If you do find anything Gadget please do let me know! ZMJW2015-03-09 15:25:11
