Just performance - Airtec astra vxr intercooler testing results!
Airtec Astra VXR Intercooler kit
Airtec has released their astra vxr front mount intercooler kit at a very reasonable price, but high quality alternative from cheap Ebay kits & more than capable of doing the same job as the more expensive kits. Below is a range of results we have gathered ourselves with our datalogger as well as the official results provided by airtec themselves, we have also tested a stage 3 astra with a forge intercooler fitted to show you a comparision of what the airtec are capable of.
Airtec's data (airtec astra vxr)
Airtec's data were taken from a dyno run.
Run 1 - Intake temperature 144 degree's(intake temp) & 26 degree's outlet temperature
Run 2- Intake temperature 146 degree's(Intake Temp) & 28 degree's outlet temperature
Run 3 - Intake temperature 152 degree's(Intake Temp) & 27 degree's outlet temperature
Just Performance's Data (Airtec astra vxr intercooler)
Our data were taken on the road with our datalogger, we did our test in Aug with an average outside temp of 25-30 degrees
Run 1 outlet temperature peaked at 35 degrees
Run 2 outlet temperature peaked at 31 degrees
Just Performance's Data (Forge astra vxr intercooler)
Our data were taken on the road with our datalogger, we did our test at around the same time of the day.
Run 1 outlet temperature peaked at 33 degrees
Run 2 outlet temperature peaked at 36 degrees
Run 3 outlet temperature peaked at 29 degrees
Just Performance's Data (standard astra vxr intercooler)
Our data were taken on the road with our datelogger, at SEP on a mild day with an average outside temp of 21 degrees
1st run - Peaked at 72 degrees
2nd Run - Peaked at 69 degrees
As you can see, the outlet temp on the airtec and the forge intercooler were fairly similar, in our opinion, it is one of the best intercooler for the money to date. Please note that both the astras with the forge and airtec cooler were at stage 3 tuning, and both testings were done in the same driving condition and roughly the same time of the day.
