Note how the inlet and outlets are staggered. The inlet is at the top of the cooler and the outlet is at the bottom. This design will force the air to flow through the whole cooler, not just straight across as if both inlet and outlets were on the top.
Also note the radiator shroud tabs at the bottom of the cooler.
Side by side shot of the whole system illustrates why we designed a whole new kit and not just a bolt on intercooler. Below are the main reasons we feel replacement of the stock piping is in order:
Stock system has an accordion hose at the inlet. This hose will create turbulence because of the ribbed design. ETS Solution- Extend the inlet tube to reach the stock turbo outlet pipe and use a straight, smooth silicone coupler. 90deg bend at the intercooler outlet is restrictive to flow. ETS Solution- Split the sharp 90deg bend up into a 60deg and a 30deg bend. This still makes a 90deg turn, but is not as sharp as the stock 90deg hose. This allows for better airflow post intercooler. Plastic Pipe has restrictive dimples protruding into the airstream. ETS Solution- Use a Stainless Steel mandrel bent pipe that is uniform inner diameter throughout it's length improves flow as well.
Stencil is an ETS Logo stamped on the intercooler.
