Helix | We need a F56s for testing our upcoming intercooler

We have the first prototype finished for the F56 Stepped Core intercooler and are looking for a local F56 S that we can test the fitment and performance on it. We might need the car for a couple of different times, but basically one day to do most of the testing. In exchange, we'll give you the intercooler, installed! Who's in?

Eric, just as a data point if you haven't looked at it already; the factory JCW F56's use a larger intercooler. It wouldn't hurt to check it out for a bar-half-raised perspective.

^Thanks for that data^. We did not know that. If you get the bumper cover off it for any reason, snap a pic of it: I'd be very interested to see.

*Amendment to original request*: We have the first prototype finished for the F56 Stepped Core intercooler and are looking for a local F56 S that we can test the fitment and performance on it. Also, If you have a JCW, how 'bout bringing it around the shop--we'd like to look at it as well!

This opportunity is still available for a local F56S owner. We're also working with leading manufacturer of USA-made, top quality exhausts as they develop a cat back system and true carbon fiber intake for the same car. They build Porsche, McLaren, BMW and Audi exhausts and are second to none in quality fitment and sound. None.

Anyway, there's an added opportunity to get an exhaust and carbon fiber intake in exchange for use of your car for the development of these products/promotion. They have a loaner so there would be no down time for you. If you're interested in having one of the finest modified F56s with little effort and money, this is your chance. Contact me (Eric) at the shop if you're interested.

Welcome to the forum. If you check the top left corner of a post it will show the date it was posted. That being said, the Helix F56 I/C has been available for retail sale for over two years now. I actually had mine installed at MOTD in 2016. If you're interested in one, they are available on the website.
