Afco heat exchanger installed 2013 Roush Stage 3

I just finished the install on an Afco dual pass heat exchanger for my 2013 Roush Stage 3. Install took about 3 hours, mainly because the instructions did not come for the Roush application and there was some extra time spent figuring it out.

Needless to say, after a lot of research this seems to be a must have upgrade for any supercharged mustang especially if you live in a warm climate.

On the initial test drive, it was 92 degrees out here in California at about 7pm and the car behaved like it was much cooler out. I noticed intake air temps to be immediately lower and the car felt faster than it normally does on a very hot day. After driving it hard, the car did not feel heat soaked at all like it normally would so this was a huge plus. Due to lower temps, not only is it much safer for reliability and longevity of the motor, but the car doesn't have to pull timing to prevent detonation so more power makes it to the ground.

The factory heat exchanger was a joke compared to the afco unit especially with the addition of the fans. With my wide open lower grill the new afco unit also looks nothing short of bad ***. The fans are not as loud as I expected and sound very cool. The fans cannot be heard with the car running and sitting inside, so I thought that was a huge plus.

All in all I think this might be a widely overlooked upgrade by a lot of people, but I could be wrong. I am very glad I did this upgrade and it's really good piece of mind keeping temps down in traffic and when on the juice hard. It looks cool, sounds cool, puts more power to the ground, and safer for the car. It is an great upgrade and I recommend it to everyone who is supercharged.

Did you have to make any modifications to get it to work? I am guessing you used the GT500 set up?

The only modification was I had to remove the the lower bumper supports for the roush bumper and they couldn't be reused, but with the heat exchanger in place the bumper is just as secure as before.

$700 from Summit Racing after a price match. I like to order from them because anything out of their Sparks, NV warehouse arrives free overnight shipping.

Good upgrade, especially for road course events to keep your inlet temp down.
