Extreme Turbo Systems Focus RS Front Mount Intercooler
Our ETS Front Mount Intercooler for the Ford Focus RS is one of the easiest ways to improve power by eliminating heat soak, which can have drastic effects on the performance of your vehicle. Factory calibrations begin to pull timing once charge air temps reach 100 degrees, and will continue to pull additional timing as the temp increases. By upgrading to our ETS Intercooler, you prevent this heat soak and are able to keep charge air temps within 10-20 degrees of the ambient temperature. This ensures that you have consistent and reliable power output on the street, track, and circuit.

- Direct bolt on
- No cuttings or drilling
- 2.5" inlet/outlet
- Average 35% reduction in charge air temps
- Built in the USA
- Availabled in Silver, Black, Blue, Gold, Red or Purple

ETS Ford Focus RS Intercooler Piping Kit Upgrade
This piping kit is a direct bolt on for both the factory intercooler and our upgraded ETS intercooler, making this the only upgraded intercooler piping you will need. In our testing we were able to immediately see an increase in boost and response without altering the factory tune, in addition to a smoother, more usable powerband.
I ran a mountune intercooler on this car for a while and I ran into heat soaking issues and my iats would go through the roof since this cooler I haven’t had iats almost always sit below 55 degrees. On top of that fitment is amazing with the intercooler and piping. Couldn’t be more happy!
Who ever designed did a great job bc it has to go in perfect. It looks amazing and it’s doing what it was made to do. It was a little rough getting the front clip on bc I got the bigger intercooler but everything still worked out. A very quality product.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
are you guys ever going to restock the 5” i want to buy one but will only buy if it’s the 5”!
We are out of stock in 5" core until January '22 but are currently accepting preorders to reserve your place in line.
Are you able to get the stencil in another colour rather than white and black? Such as a blue?
Yup! Please add your requests in the notes column during the order process.
Do you need to be tuned to run one?
Nope! A tune is not requried to run an upgraded intercooler. You will net more horsepower with a tune, but it's not required to run an intercooler.
What is the difference between the 4" vs the 5" other than the size. Is the cooling increased and will any modifications have to be made to the car to fit the 5 inch intercooler.
Just the cooling ability of the charge air and its flow rating. The 5" would be aimed for the 500+WHP cars on bigger turbos. The 5" option does require cutting to the bumper while the 4" option just bolts on.
Going to order this is near future. Can I get it black? Not an option on this screen, but is available when ordering the intercooler separate from piping
100%! You have to select the stencil option and then the anodizing option will appear. It's a little goofy, but we're working through it. Thank you!
Does it fit with focus st ?
It will not fit the Focus ST
