FG50T

New Plazmaman 700Hp Fg

Recommended Posts

Hey I've noticed Plazmamn have released this no metal cutting intercooler ($795) which wasn't around last time I was shopping. It looks like a stock F6 cooler but better? I asked them about it and they said it's good for 380rwkw and they use their lightweight tube and fin core. I just have doubts because it's dimensionally the smallest on the market. Even smaller than the autotechnica ebay ones. So just wondering if anyones using one.

Plaz = 400 x 380 x 63

F6 = 370 x 380 x 45

Dont always let size be the deciding factor with intercoolers

Plaz are a quality product and I would have no issues using it

I noticed this too the other day.....but by saying "no metal cutting" I believe you still need to cut the top plastic section above the reo bar (not sure of the technical name, but pretty sure there is some form of cutting involved).

Have you confirmed with them about no cutting at all?

and its $845 for raw and $895 for black

if there is cutting needed, I'd rather go PW stage 2 in black for $265 more....cause apparently performs as good as Plaz 1000?

Spoke to them for best price. I've had a pw stepped and a pw stage 2 cooler. Wasn't comfortable with what I had to do chop to get it to fit on a brand new car.

Have my eye on this cooler aswell, or the PWR stepped. Simply because they say no cut.

I actually rung Plazma, guy I spoke to said on some cars the top reo support bar still needs some love.

Just hoping to max the standard FG turbo, then look at supporting 350 when the baby dies and I upgrade

I'm looking at changing the cooler on my FG F6 but don't want to cut anything. Did any of you get one and were you happy with the results. I'm sure it's a quality product.

Call , Nizpro , plazmaman, PWR and Process West and ask for the biggest cooler they have that requires NO cutting. IE body modifications.

 

PWR and Process West do stepped coolers , so absolute ZERO cutting..

 

Then see if it suits your power goal..

Thanks arronm. I did have a look at Nizpro's site and couldn't see a listing for a smaller cooler so I'll have to talk to them by the looks of it.

I've spoken to Jonny as well. He's thinking of doing another run of his stepped coolers if there is enough interest. After all the reading through these pages it would be the way I go. If not I'll talk to the rest of them and pick one from there.

Yeah as arronm said definitely double check that there is no cutting of anything what so ever if that's what you want. I got a "no cut" plaz 800hp cooler and you had to cut heaps of sh*t. Just nothing metal other than a bolt. But there was heaps of plastic to cut out including a big reinforcement bar for the bumper..

From Plazmaman re this intercooler "Please be advised that the top plastic bar support bracket will need to be removed to fit this cooler - this bracket has no function and is not structural"

Yeh Ford just add bits for no reason. 

 

I know if Ford can add 1 less rivet to save 5c they will. 

 

So that support bar is definitely needed for something , with removal definitely an issue that could result in lots of out of pocket expenses. 

 

 

That said.  If I had an FG I would cut and jam in the largest cooler that would fit

 

Probably go Nizpro though.

That seems to contradict what they say on their website. Plus the photo with the black version installed shows the plastic reinforcement bar still there. The next time I have the front bar off of one of these I might look at what's required to remove the whole thing. If it is easy enough then it might be a good idea to get another one to hack up and then there are better options I guess. The more I look at this intercooler anyway it only appears to be a small step up.

The cooler in the link above looks different but it maybe a generic image. 

 

I'll just have to make some calls during a lunch break to the ones arron listed and see if they'll suit my power goal.

Wow so Ford had spare plastic they needed to get rid off

 

I am amazed ford had so much plastic they put in pieces just to get rid of it :)

Hey Guys, sorry to bring up a old thread, just wanted to know if this intercooler will fit the Intune Piping kit. I'm looking at getting 300-330rwkw at the wheels so I'm sure this intercooler will do the job. I emailed plazmaman and they said it Should fit but just want to make sure it does.

the intune piping kit is just a stock replacement, so if the plazzy intercooler fits a stock piping setup (which this one does), it'll work. :)

Hi - Just got one including piping and completed install. Have made a post in the G6E section. Great kit and you do need to cut out a chunk of the black plastic, other than that it bolts up nicely. Will do another post once I have finished build and tune.
