CSF Porsche 992 Turbo Performance Twin Intercooler Set
With increased power, also comes higher levels of heat generated by the engine system. This is why an upgraded intercooler system is especially important in a turbo application. The new CSF 992 Turbo/S Intercooler System is a “must have” bolt-on modification, considering placement of the intercooler system on top of the engine.
Since the inception of the first water-cooled Porsche 911 Turbo with the 996 variant in 2001, the Turbo has been regarded as “the everyday supercar.” With each subsequent model, from 997, then 991, and now with the new 992, the boundaries of usable performance have been pushed on the street, racetrack, and drag strip. The Porsche Turbo is one of the most advanced tuning platforms around the world, with modifications ranging from simple bolt-ons and tunes, to built engines, upgraded turbos, and standalone ECU management systems on vehicles pushing well over 1,000WHP.
Unconventional to the typical individual side-mounted intercoolers behind the ducts of the front doors found in previous water-cooled Turbo models, the new 992 generation has moved the intercooler system to the top of the engine compartment with fresh ambient air now being transferred into the intercooler system through redesigned intercooler ducts sitting beneath the rear decklid.
Cold, fresh air is scooped in by the intercooler ducts, positioned on each side of the car’s rear quarter panels. The air then travels into the inlet tanks on each side of the intercooler system module. The heat transfer process takes place as the charge-air moves through the intercooler core and the ambient air passes through the core from the top intercooler ducts, and exits below the vehicle. The intercooled charge-air from both cores is then merged in the single center section outlet tank before entering the y-pipe connected to the engine’s throttle body.

Below are charts of the data from two pulls, one with the stock intercooler system, and one with the CSF High-Performance Intercooler System. These tests started in 4th gear at 2500RPM, went through a shift into 5th, and then to redline.
Note: Both tests were completed on the same day with the OEM intercoolers tested first at approximately 9:00 AM with much lower ambient air temperature and density altitude (DA). The CSF intercoolers were tested at approximately 2:00 PM. The stock intercooler run had about 40°F cooler intercooler inlet start temps & 20*F cooler IC outlet temps at the start of the pulls, therefore this data has been normalized for real-world results and a fair comparison. The spike in boost pressure displayed on these graphs is representing the shift from 4th to 5th gear when the throttle closes slightly.
