      Review & Installation Video

      This intercooler from Mishimoto is gonna be an option for the EcoBoost owner out there looking to bring down intake air temps, as well as those looking for more performance and more boost from a budget-friendly solution. The Mishimoto intercooler is currently the most budget-friendly option on the site. The install for this is easy, it's a one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and you can expect to spend two hours getting this installed. The whole purpose of an intercooler is to increase performance, and it does this through lowering the temperature of the incoming air that's compressed by the turbo. It forces cool air into the cylinders, so basically you're looking at cooler intake air temps, thanks to the intercooler. This makes it a good mod for stock cars that are worried about heat soak, or even modified cars that need some more cooling capability. The factory intercooler can only cool so much air, it's limited by its size. So when you start fooling around with the EcoBoost, and you start running some more boost and bolting on some mods, then you're looking at maxing out your factory unit and needing to upgrade. That being said, I really wouldn't peg a front mount as the best first upgrade for performance, but it does work best when you already did some work, and you wanna make sure that your power potential isn't limited by your coolant setup. But like I just mentioned, depending on what area you're living in, and if your car's a daily, you could be having heat soak issues that are killing some of your performance. And so in that case, upgrading the intercooler is also a good idea. Just how much better of a cooling job an intercooler is capable of comes down to its size. This intercooler here is larger than the factory one all the way around, and that's one of the factors that's gonna give you those cooler temps. This intercooler has a 58% larger core, with 25%more internal core volume, and a big 165% increase in external fin surface area. So if we compare this to the factory front mount, the Mishi core is taller, thicker, and longer. This is an all the way around bigger intercooler than the factory one. The core is larger than the factory core is, but it's still gonna work with the factory piping, which actually has two benefits, which I'll explain in a second, and it's still a drop-in replacement. These are two very nice qualities because it means you don't have to spend any money on upgrading your piping and you don't have to worry about having to modify anything to get this installed. And the larger core means you have a larger cooling surface, hence the greater cooling ability. One thing to start thinking about when you start upgrading your setup around your turbo, is things like pressure drop and turbo lie. So sometimes bigger isn't always better, depending on your setup and what you've got going on. But with this intercooler, you aren't looking at a major pressure drop, which is good news for those of you that are concerned with your low-end power band. The ability of this front mount to do that probably has to do with the fact that you're still using your factory piping. So that's the second benefit of keeping your piping. And one other thing I wanted to hit on when it comes to the factory piping is to keep in mind that these are speed density cars, not math cars, so you don't have to worry about needing a larger math housing, or maxing out a housing since there's nothing to max out. When it comes to some of the specifics, this of course is TIG-welded, and it's made from 6061 aluminum. The aluminum's gonna dissipate heat faster, which is why it's used for intercoolers. This guy's also got an in-tank diverter to divert and improve airflow so you'll be able to utilize the entire front mount. Now this one's powder coated silver, but Mishimoto does also offer this intercooler powder coated black, if you're interested in that look instead. The black will just give you a more stealthy appearance. As far as price, this intercooler's gonna run you just over $500. This is currently the most budget-friendly option on the site, but Mishimoto isn't your only option. Injen also offers an intercooler as well, and so does COBB. So I wouldn't call the install for an intercooler on an S550 particularly difficult. It's gonna take about two hours time and be a one outta three wrench on the difficulty meter. You are looking at needing a handful of tools to get this done, and a lift is gonna be your best friend in this case. Getting the car up high enough to work under the front end will make things go faster for you. You will be pulling the intercooler out from below the car, and you do have to pop off the front bumper cover, the grilles, and pull the bottom dust cover off. But this is all is easy stuff. Mishimoto does give you some hardware for the install, and like I said earlier, this is a direct drop-in upgrade, so it's gonna install the same way that the factory one came out. Wrapping things up here, the Mishimoto intercooler is a drop-in front mount upgrade for the 2015 and newer EcoBoost Mustang. And I suggest you check it out more online right here at

        So easy

        Easily installed once the OEM parts are removed. So glad I swapped the charge pipes at the same time. I had a local shop do the work due to a lack of time.

        5 2018 EcoBoost - 2018Ecoboost Installation Time: Afternoon

        Great product

        Took longer to take off the front bumper than it did to install this intercooler. Getting to the hose clamps on the passenger side is a pain with little to no room to maneuver due to the washer fluid reservoir being mounted there. Took me about 2 hours to install 75 percent of that being taking the bumper off and on. Definitely works, charge temps are always within 10 degrees of the intake temp at speed. Coupled with a Stage 2 OTS Cobb tune the car pulls like a freight train now. I have a 2018 EcoBoost with the 10 speed and it's a whole new car. Cant wait to get a custom tune. Would 100 recommend as a purchase.

        Ice cold intake temps.

        Dropped about 15-20° at idle. Sits at ambient temp or 2° colder depending on speed. (I have a decent cold air intake that I isolated and instated along with the inter cooler. May cause slight variance in temps.)
