C.A.R.B. and E.P.A. Information

The SXTH Element Engineering Front Mount Intercooler Kit was re-designed from the ground up for more cooling, more flow, and easier installation at a better price!

***PLEASE NOTE FOR 2019-2021 VELOSTER TURBO and the 2017-2020 ELANTRA SPORT, SOME LIGHT GRINDING TO INSIDE OF THE FRONT BUMBER SUPPORT IS REQUIRED***

Our high performance bar and plate core provides superior cooling and heat sink resistance to competitor's tube/plate construction.  Our new core is officially the largest on the market with it's stepped core design.  The bottom portion measures 22in x 4.67in x 6.2in and the top portion measures 22in x 2.89in x 3in.  That's 9% more internal cooling area than our nearest competitor and 15% more than our previous design.

The Core


Our intercooler core was designed using 3D scanning and CAD along with CFD simulation to achieve perfect fitment while maximizing airflow.  The "stepped" core takes up as much space as possible so we can achieve the best cooling possible while fitting in the car without any modifications or extra parts needed.  Our core also comes with a special heat resistant coating.

Our fin design and end tanks are designed to flow as smooth as possible to help retain OEM spooling and power delivery characteristics.  Even at our larger size, no noticable lag is added to the system.

 

Hot Pipe


Our kit keeps the OEM cold side tubing for installation simplicity and to help keep overall pricing affordable. The OEM cold side tubing supported our Forte GT Hybrid turbo car at 310 wheel horsepower with ease. Our hot side tubing was tweaked to add a mounting bracket and for even better fitment.

OEM vs SXTH


The OEM intercooler in the 2019+ Veloster Turbo / Elantra Sport / Forte GT leaves a lot to be desired. As you can see below, the SXTH unit is much larger than OEM.  By utilizing every cubic inch possible, we can provide better airlfow and better cooling for more power and less heat soak.

Performance Boost

Even though there are certain limiters in the Engine Control Unit (ECU), our core was still able to achieve measurable power increase on our in-house dyno.  Gains can be seen across the RPM range.  Peak gains of 10 wheel HP and over 13 wheel HP in the upper RPM range on the OEM ECU programming!

Couplers & Clamps


We use the highest quality 5-ply silicone hoses and t-bolt clamps for our tubing connections.  The hoses are also designed in the computer for perfect fitment.

    Awesome intercooler

    The install itself was super easy! I enjoyed the install til the the t clamps. The hot/cold side to the intercooler need to be a bit bigger. They were super hard for me to get on. The rest was a breeze and I also like the clamp for the hot pipe. Wish it came with the bigger cold side pipe. Overall awesome product super quick shipping! Would recommend. Great work. Keep it up!!

    A MUST BUY!!!

    Easy enough installation, you just have to really squeeze those clamps around the hoses in some of the locations, especially on the intercooler on the cold side. Might have been less difficult if the clamps were a little larger so they could move on the silicone with the nut threaded at the tip. But, overall, im very pleased with the installation on the '20 Forte GT. It fits like a glove, and looks great through the bumper. I wasn't sure if it needed a break in period or not, so I drove nicely for about a hundred miles. I just pushed it a little harder today, and that 2nd gear pull is way more aggressive! It's a very nice addition with my other upgrades. Big thanks to SXTH Element for making a larger intercooler! I'm very happy with the purchase!
