Whether you live in a hot climate region, enjoy drag racing, or long high speed pulls on airstrips the INFINITI Q50/Q60 Red Alpha Heat Exchanger will help keep your intake temps lower and maintain your INFINITI’s maximum power output no matter the conditions. The only VR30 heat exchanger system chosen by INFINITI USA to be part of INFINITI’s Motorsports Catalog.
Your 3.0L twin turbocharged engine does not use the typical air to air front mount intercooler (FMIC) you may be used to. Like many modern turbocharged vehicles the INFINITI Q60 and Q50 3.0L use coolant to cool the intake air charge through an air to water heat exchanger. While this method may be sufficient for a stock vehicle under ideal conditions, it can quickly become heat soaked robbing horsepower.
Through testing, we found the factory INFINITI heat exchanger restricts coolant flow. This restriction slows the flow of coolant though the air to water intercooler minimizing the cooling of your intake air. The flow of the factory heat exchanger holds back the full potential of your VR30 engine. Not something you want as a performance enthusiast.
