The newest release from MADNESS Autoworks!
Our newly released Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) was designed to outperform the competition!
The MADNESS Front Mount Intercooler features a Bar and Plate Design, custom made brackets and a complete set of custom molded high quality Silicone hoses. This is not simply an off the shelf core that was adapted for the 500. We have sold and installed countless FIAT 500 Intercoolers over the years. This experience has allowed us to designed what we believe is the best all around unit in the market!
The bar and plate design allows for increased airflow over the factory setup. The Bar and Plate Design is preferred over the tube and fin design due to cooling ability, increased durability and resistance to being damaged by road debris. The unique design of this intercooler allows for the reduction of temperatures, increased performance and reduced weight.
Better airflow and performance was accomplished by increasing the surface area of the intercooler and reducing the ducting the factory system utilizes. The unit was specifically designed for the 500 and not simply adapted to fit. In addition the unit comes with two custom silicone hoses that eliminate the factory pipping which not only help in improving air flow, but virtually eliminated the chances of a boost leak. This results in significantly lower inlet air temperatures and increased performance with a reduction in heat soak.
This intercooler was designed specifically for the 1.4L Multi Air FIAT 500 Turbo Engine. This unit is designed to bolt up without any issues or modifications because it was specifically designed for the application, rather then modified to work. Both hoses were molded to fit exactly and provide smooth airflow without any interruption of airflow/ turbulence that can be caused by sharp turn, couplers and transitions. The unit was designed with the goal of eliminating as many joints/ transitions as possible to eliminate the chance of boost leaks. This unit does not use couplers or adapters that are found on some other units that can contribute to boost leaks.
