The Masata N54 N55 Stepped Performance HD intercooler delivers better cooling, more power to the wheels, and allows you to hold that power longer during extended runs. With a larger core and more surface area than stock, your intercooler pressure drop is reduced, and cooling dramatically improved. Resulting in peak power gains of around 10bhp and during longer pulls and back-to-back runs as much as 20-30bhp over the factory intercooler. The Masata performance intercoolers are painted black for a stealthy appearance.
The Masata performance intercoolers are a direct replacement for your factory intercooler and fully reversible. All required hardware is included.
- High-Density Fins for ultimate performance
- Larger core and more surface area than stock
- Adds 10-30bhp once tuned
- Direct replacement, OEM Fitment
- Significantly lower Intake temperature

Desislav's N54 FBO (Full Bolt-On) struggled with the high IAT on his N54 after his tuner increased the boost on his custom map 6 setups to 17-19psi. The car was reaching 192°F after a 2nd to 4th gear pull, which kills timing advance thus reduce power output, this is an 83°F increase in temperature after a single pull. Once he upgraded to the Masata N54 HD Performance Intercooler, this greatly reduced the IAT after the same 2-4th gear pull, from the above test data, the Masata Intercooler was 65°F cooler than stock after the same 2nd - 4th gear pull.
Special thanks to our customer Desislav and his tuner, who shared these amazing test results with us, to once again show that the Masata Intercooler is doing its job.
