Fits: Defender TD5, Defender 2.4 TDCi, Defender 2.2 TDCi Defender both AC and non AC models
A brand new specification Defender Performance Intercooler dedicated for TD5, Puma 2.4 & Puma 2.2 TDCi’s, compatible for AC or non AC cars. The new BAS Hi-Flow intercooler is the ultimate in Defender performance intercoolers for use in applications upto 1.6bar of boost pressure.
This HI-FLOW Intercooler is constructed using a hi-grade LM25 cast aluminum tank which is then CNC machined for a perfect fit to the center cooling core – giving maximum strength without any risk of splits (which can be sometimes seen on “Folded Plate Tank” Intercoolers). The very hi-spec center cooling core is made to our desired specification and constructed with internal serrated and louvered finned tubes, which are designed to turbulate the internal charge air whilst giving a lower drop pressure across the core, also proving to be way more efficient than OEM, therefore yielding the maximum cooling effect; which is key to an efficient and balanced Intercooler package.
We have also have a slightly wider intercooler pipe placement allowing for thicker silicone hoses to be fitted easier without problems of the hose catching on the cowl plastics and allowing the clamps to be fitted easier, as well as this we have also made the inlet and outlet pipe diameters slightly larger externally than the 50mm OEM ensuring a good tight fit for the hoses.
Hoses will stretch and fit very tightly to the larger intercooler pipework ensuring once clamped correctly they will never blow off even in extreme use.
This new BAS Intercooler has been independently tested by a calibration laboratory in the UK, and has been subject to extensive testing all of which have been issued with their own certification number some of which are listed below:
High Frequency Pressure Cycling, at the double working pressure.
Drop Pressure Testing, to prove a balanced air flow rate.
High Pressure Burst Tests, ensuring overall strength.
Air Fin Flow Testing, both internally and externally.
Air Heat Rejection Clarification, ensuring we have good cooling.
Overall Intercooler Efficiency Testing.
This Intercooler has been finished with a very fine stippled effect water resistant coating (which does not impede on its heat rejection capabilities) and allows for long term protection, as well as an OEM look, when installed on your vehicle.
Some very small modifications are needed on the car to allow fitment of this large inter cooler conversion.
The two plastic lugs on the front of the water radiator, one lower left and one lower right must be removed to allow the larger core to drop down further in front of the radiator.
