The Racer X Fabrication front mount intercooler for the 2012 to 2018 Chevy Sonic is the perfect addition for the the enthusiast that needs additional cooling. The Racer X intercooler starts with a larger core than OEM and increased fin density, which translates into increased cooling capacity at higher power output. The OEM intercooler will heat soak and reduce power during spirited driving or longer duration RPM pulls. The Racer X intercooler is built around a high performance intercooler core. The sheet metal end tanks are designed with CAD and multiple CFD analysis are performed before ever cutting a part. Finally, we CNC cut and TIG weld the end tanks to the intercooler core. The intercooler is a direct bolt on replacement and utilizes the OEM mounting location. The intercooler comes standard with black Racer X Fabrication silicone couplers and T-bolt clamps.
