The PERRIN heat exchanger mounted to the lower splach guard using some machined aluminum mounting brackets. These provide a strong base for the core to mount to and also add some really cool looks to the front grill area for those who might peak into there. The placement of our core was designed such that other aftermarket intercoolers would still fit behind our core. This is important as we know our biggest customer for this will be Supercharger kit and turbo kit guys.
HOW DOES IT LOOK?
Whenever we make a part it's very important to make that part functional first then secondly make sure it looks really good on the car. We choose to put the PERRIN core in the front of the car and centered in the middle of the grill. This tells other people that you have something really cool going on with your car. We also choose to center it in the grill as apposed to others that push it off to one side. This leads to a much more balance appearance at the front of the car.
The oil lines are hidden and as you can see looks very fitting for the front of the car.
What we have done is learned that oil temp makes a big difference in how consistent your car makes HP. We have learned that your engines oil temps will get out of control if nothing is done about it, which can lead to loss of power or major engine failures. The PERRIN Oil Cooler will keep your temps in check and your HP consistent , along with adding a huge amount of safety margin car. Consider a PERRIN oil cooler to be one of the main building blocks to your BRZ/FR-S build if you value your engine long term life.
