Design features include
50mm thick core The original RS 500 intercooler and most 500 intercooler replicas have only 40mm cores.
These cores are extremely efficient due to their internal design. Each tube has dozens of fine alloy ‘fingers’ internally, which point into the charge air flow and grab the heat energy.
Extruded cores are very strong, our RS500 core will withstand 100 psi.pressure
Our end tanks and tubes are shaped to allow maximum air flow, the flared pipes on entry and exit positions give an opening of 76mm into the tank, aiding air flow at this potentially restrictive point thus making the car more responsive and helps the turbo to hold higher boost levels.
This is a bolt straight on conversion, all standard hoses and fittings can be used.
Pro Alloy intercooler cores are fully brazed in a controlled atmosphere process to comply with ISO 9001 quality assurance standards
A quote from a happy customer"I have fitted my Pro Alloy on my 4wd saph. I must say I'm really happy with it. My saph drives with the pro alloy IC on a 30degree day like my old 4wd IC on a cold day. And its really responsive. Its a proper piece of kit".

A quote from performance ford magazine sept 2004
"As soon as we got the intercooler out of the box we knew it was going to be good.The over all finish of the unit is absoluteley spot on, the pictures don't do it justice, it's almost a shame to fit it to an oily engine bay". " The owner of the test car chose the PRO ALLOY unit to be the one he would have on his car and he actually removed the genuine RS500 unit to fit the PRO ALLOY intercooler after the test was completed"
