It's no secret that the stock front mount intercooler (FMIC) on the Ford Raptor F-150 EcoBoost truck is undersized and quickly becomes heat soaked. This causes a reduction in available power. For that reason, an upgraded front mount intercooler is the best hard part upgrade for your Raptor F-150!

Front Mount Intercooler (Factory Location) Raptor F-150

This cast aluminum, TIG welded assembly has a core with 70% greater volume than the stock unit and offers 10% more cooling surface area. All while mating snugly to the OEM shutter shroud requiring absolutely no cutting, trimming, or permanent modification to the vehicle.

This FMIC was designed in house with attention to detail lacking on other aftermarket offerings. Computational fluid dynamic analysis was used to create the smoothest end tank design which increases flow evenly and resulted in no areas of significant turbulence. The outlet port of the intercooler was also designed with a large chamfer to provide a smooth transition out of the intercooler into the throttle body tube to further reduce turbulence in the system.

For those planning additional modifications like water or methanol injection, this intercooler also has two flat sections into the casting. The top flat can easily be drilled and tapped to introduce a nozzle. The bottom flat can be used as a drain port.

Our original version of the upgraded FMIC took up more real estate than a greedy developer. This works great when trying to maximize performance but does come with the trade-off of a complicated install that requires a bit of modification to the vehicle. The COBB factory location FMIC seeks to still offer the benefits of an upgraded unit while making install a breeze.

Just how easy is it to install?

So you've got the new FMIC installed. Now what?

@COBB Tuning Is there any stats available as to the difference in airflow or cooling abilities of this unit vs the front mount unit? I dont want to cut out the shutter system and lose the fans. But also want the most power I can get out of the tuning obviously. If there was a significant gain going to front mount id do that. Can you speak on this briefly as to the flow differential between the 2 intercoolers?

These two responses are from the product page on the Cobb site. Basically depends how many hard pulls between letting things cool back down from what i can read between the lines.

Hello,
The power is the same. The larger one will be able to maintain slightly cooler charge air temps longer, resulting in maintaining that max output a bit longer.

Hi,
An upgraded intercooler, in either position, will yield very similar benefits in performance.
