I worked with Jason at CVF to test the first Focus ST intercooler from CVF. The intercooler was a huge upgrade over he stock unit in terms of performance and size. The swap process was straight forward enough for me to complete without any prior experience. The fitment was very good, the included bolts / mounting hardware worked perfectly. In the pictures the unit is a little dinged up up - this is because it was the first / test unit, Jason mentioned this and said production ICs will be in much better shape. I saw 40f + drops in IAT2 temperatures (recorded with a Cobb AP) during test passes. With the stock intercooler at 72.5F ambient, the intercooler hit 127F+. After the install, the same pass saw only +1F to +3F over ambient (72F). I was at ~84mph in the test passes. The intercooler (while a test unit) looks great and performs much better than the stock unit.
