Airtec | Turbo Radiator | Toyota Yaris GR | FXE | 2021+
Following an extensive development process, AIRTEC Motorsport are proud to launch our turbo cooler and auxiliary radiator kits aimed at modified Yaris GR owners who require the ultimate cooling package to maintain steady running temperatures on track or fast road use.
The Challenge When modifying the Yaris GR to increase power and torque at more extreme levels, an unavoidable by-product is the additional heat level that’s transferred to the car’s cooling system. During hard use this can become a substantial issue, as Airtec found on their own 400bhp+ Yaris GR demo car whilst testing on track. After sustained periods of hard use (similar to a round of racing), coolant temperatures would eventually reach 102 degrees, which was enough to trigger the aftermarket ECU’s safety features, putting the car into limp mode. Similarly, oil temperatures reached 123 degrees. Airtec needed to address the car’s entire cooling system if we were going continue to modify and track our Yaris.
The Solution Developed in-house at AIRTEC HQ in the UK we designed a series of new products to address the cooling issues when pushed to the limit. This additional turbo cooler fits neatly behind the fog light (requires removal) and utilises laser-cut aluminium ducting to force cold air through the radiator. To create a flow path and further improve cooling, air then exits via the inner arch liner (requires cutting). A pre-cut mesh shield is supplied for both the front and rear to protect the radiator from road debris damage.
The turbo cooler is plumbed directly into the cooling circuit that flows coolant to the turbo, therefore offering an immediate reduction in heat before the coolant reaches the hottest part of the car, which improves overall capacity and cooling ability, allowing it to maintain a steady temperature for longer during hard use.
This can fit with any of Airtec's intercooler or oil cooler combinations to create the ultimate cooling package. The comprehensive kit also features laser-cut and powder-coated brackets, high-quality Pro Hoses silicone lines as well as all fixtures and fittings, and detailed fitting instructions.
The Testing Airtec went back to the track fitted with both their turbo and auxiliary radiators, as well as their larger Stage 3 oil cooler fitted, and were able to see a 10 degree peak drop from the coolant temperature, reducing to a much safer constant 92 degrees whilst oil temperature reached a maximum of 94 degrees thanks to a mix of the larger oil cooler allowing more surface area to cool the oil and the turbo cooler being able to reject more heat for the car’s original oil/water heat exchanger.
