Clio MK4 RS 200T/220T Trophy Intercooler Kit
Once again we’ve teamed up with RS Tuning to develop a completely new Intercooler kit, this time for the 1.6L turbo engine Clio. This bolt on intercooler kit will remove the standard side mounted intercooler and will include all the kit parts needed to fit the intercooler to the Clio 200 & 220 Trophy. Our kit even includes a replacement throttle body pipe which is made in billet aluminium instead of the standard plastic part that is known to fail on some vehicles. The kit is designed to be as simple fitment as possible, not an easy task when you look at the layout of the Clio's engine bay. Our kit will not require the air-con to be re-gassed like some kits meaning it can be fitted by any car enthusiast.
To get the best from the small frame turbocharger that’s fitted to the Clio RS flow is key, there are many other products on the market that will indeed drop the intake temperatures compared to stock but when it comes to pressure drop they will lose power as the core used is so inefficient the boost that is generated post intercooler is a lot less than pre intercooler. This means the turbo is working a lot harder to produce the same boost pressure in the intake manifold.
The Pro Alloy cooler uses a very efficient tube and fin core which has minimal pressure drop, is relatively light compared to the bar and plate which also means you won’t get heat soak when pushing hard.
Initial testing shows the power gains on a stock Clio 220 Trophy are a staggering 10hp and 10lbft peak with a much improved bottom end. With 5 pulls on the dyno one after the other the cooler kept charge temperatures down in the 20’s with only a 5 degree increase during the pull which was soon recovered very quickly at the end!
