The Legendary CrossCountry ULTIMATE intercooler system for the GU TD42 as used by the nations toughest TD,s.
The CrossCountry Intercooler Ultimate Top Mount system is the ideal setup for any GU patrol with forced induction. Wether your into hardcore 4x4, towing a van or just after some extra power and fuel economy, this cooler is for you. Seeing the need for a high flow, ultra effecient intercooler system with exceptional heat exchanging properties and without sacrificing radiator cooling or ground clearance issues (as with many front mounts) we designed the Ultimate system. From its inception 4 years ago, it has proven to be the most effective, high performance intercooler and is used by the nations toughest Trolls pushing over 200 rear wheel killowatts.
We start with the latest light-weight tube and fin core from europe. This is coupled with our CNC folded tanks that have been the culmination of years of motorsport fabrication experiance, then refined even further using computer flow simulation. This ensures our tanks are highly effecient and provide high even, unrestricted flow to the whole area of the core with no swirl pockets or restrictions. Because our tanks are a hand built sheet aluminum tank they dont heat soak like cast tanks do. Think of that mass of aluminum in a cast tank being a battery for thermal energy, thick cast tanks store this thermal energy and as a result get to a saturation point (heatsoak). For obviuos reasons this is very undesirable!
The Ultimate system incorporates a Spal skewed blade fan to provide excellent thermal transfer at low vehicle speeds and the complete cooler is individually hand TIG welded to world class standards by the industries best craftsmen in house at CrossCountry. Wether your GU patrol is aftermarket turbo, factory turbo or even factroy intercooled everything is included in our kit to make your installation as easy as possible. The cooler is fitted in house by our technitions to our custom powder coated frame, just pull it out the box and bolt it into position using the two factory studs on the firewall. Everything is included from all nuts, bolts, clamps, polished mandrell bent alloy pipework, silicones, bonnet scoop, full instructions, even the wiring loom for the fan is built in house and is a plug n play design that is fully labelled for ease of installation!
The Ultimate system can be configured to suit low and high mounted turbo setups, just specify what you require when ordering. The design of our Fan Forced top mounted intercoolers means they do not suffer heat soak and have been put through rigourous testing on the dyno and in our harsh enviroment to ensure unrivalled thermal effeciency at low vehicle speeds. Our top mounted systems have been proven to outperform cheap front mounted systems with peak torque coming on around 500rpm sooner and holding on much longer. This is a must for any diesel when you only have around 4000rpm to play with! This is due to our short, unrestricted, direct intake path, computer flow simulated sheet tanks and the latest generation PWR cores used in all our intercooler systems
This kit is extremely simple to fit and does not have half the amount of throttle lagging pipework as other systems on the market.
