New Fiesta ST 180 EcoBoost Intercooler and Crash Bar by Pro Alloy.
The build quality does not get any better than this.
 

Anyone involved in motorsport will know when building a car with competition in mind, weight is always a key factor. The standard OE steel bumper bar weighs in at over 8kg, so to change this part with a lightweight fabricated 6082 aluminium replacement is going to make a big difference. The new Pro Alloy kit, including the enormous intercooler weighs in at a mere 12.7kg not far off the OEM bumper bar alone!

Weight saving wasn't the only reason to develop the new bumper bar for this kit. The new fabricated bumper bar is actually the key to fitting an intercooler large enough to do all that is required of it when these cars are running at such high power, especially when being used on track. Squeezing in a 62mm thick core with such a huge surface area into the front end of this little hatch is no easy task, especially when developing a kit which doesn’t require any cutting of any of the original parts.

The Tube & Fin style intercooler core offers optimum performance - with lightweight seam welded tubes and internally brazed turbulators giving excellent heat transfer properties, internal flow characteristics and strength.

Maximising the ambient airflow passing through the front of the car is also critical. To aid this, the new kit is fitted with some comprehensive air ducting on the front of the intercooler capturing as much of the fresh air heading through the front bumper as possible. This air ducting has been carefully designed to fit snugly to the back of the front bumper, helping to ensure as much airflow as possible is channelled through the intercooler and into the A/C Condenser and water radiator, to help ensure water cooling isn’t compromised.

The new bumper bar is also equipped with a towing eye boss located into the standard position allowing the standard towing eye to be used.
