Cool Introducing the New 7.5 inch RACE intercooler from VRSF

EDIT: NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!









Size comparison between 7inch and new 7.5inch stepped.

Not only is it a different more efficient core but it has the size for those who need it.

It's designed for people with 600HP to 1000HP. At that point size will come into play but also the more efficient intercooler.

This is not for regular stock turbo guys or even people sub 550WHP.

VRSF will be releasing at some point down the road a 7" RACE FMIC to fill the gap for those looking for an even better 7" without the potential pressure loss.

I don't have actual pressure loss but for the guys with big turbo singles, it's not really a concern because of the need to keep IAT in check.

That being said, VRSF is waiting from some independent data from some beta testers.

Not sure on price yet but it should be very competitive.

Man i'd test this thing like NOW if they're looking for beta testers. I've had the VRSF cores since they did the first group buy for the 7" in late 2012, have always found their products to function and fit well.

That is mucho frontal surface area wow

Looks comparable to the AA race, I'd like to see a side by side.

This is the largest available stepped intercooler available right now, it's quite a bit larger than the AA race and retains the stepped 7.5" core below for improved fitment with the OEM fan shroud which helps recovery times when the fan is on.

Very impressive Tiago, i'm excited to see how well this functions for the single turbo folks. In the summer my IATs creep up higher than i'd like. The design of most front mounts for our cars don't help (deep vs tall), so this should really fit the bill.

I'm excited to get these in. Once we've finished up testing we'll be able to approve production. Pricing should be set in the high $6xx/low $7xx range.

I'm not sure if VRSF needs any more beta testers but it wouldn't hurt to drop them an email and see.

I'll drop them a line.

@[Tiago@VRSF](contact:32345) OK if I shoot you a PM? If you guys are set on beta testers, i'll gladly step aside. But if data collection is helpful i'm happy to help and pay the full retail price.

Count me in too. I'm in desperate need of more cooling.
