The AGP front mount intercooler for the 2008+ Evo X is a perfect addition to improve overall performance. The AGP FMIC features tig welded end tanks attached to a 20" x 12" x 3.5" bar and plate core. AGP designed their front mount assembly to fit perfectly in the factory location and does NOT require you to remove or trim any portion of the stock bumper support! AGP's Evo X FMIC also clears the factory lower under-tray so you do not need to remove it.
It cools at 90-99% efficiency under almost all conditions and has less than .75psi pressure drop at 450 hp of airflow. You couldn't heat soak this if you tried. Throughout AGP's dyno testing on the Evo X, they kept seeing timing retard (knock) around 5000rpm with the factory intercooler and 91 octane gas, where the power would drop. Since upgrading to their Evo X FMIC they noticed consistant power across the board due to a cooler air charge. Back to back pulls on the dyno now result in identical power curves due to no heatsoak on a car that has so far, made 430whp. This is a great upgrade for a stock Evo X, and will help you make more and more power down the road as you continue to add performance products to enhance the 4B11T.
The AGP FMIC kit includes their 20" x12 " x 3.5" bar and plate core, silicone hoses and clamps and all necessary installation hardware.
