Fiat 500 1.4 Abarth - MVT Front Mount Intercooler Kit

Direnza’s MVT Intercooler for the Abarth 500 ofers upto +7.6Hp withought any further mods or engine mapping!

What is MVT?
‘MVT’ stands for ‘Multi Vane Technology’ and is a Direnza trademark. MVT significantly enhances the efficiency of an intercooler, leading to reduced intake temperatures and, ultimately, increased engine performance.

Within Direnza’s MVT intercoolers are special vanes, which distribute incoming charge air across the entire intercooler core, achieving significantly greater cooling efficiency than a system without MVT.

Technical Analysis
Extensive research into existing intercooler designs revealed that most systems have angled fabricated end tanks with very poor air flow characteristics.

Making matters worse, many intercoolers we analysed channelled most of the charge air (as much as 80% of it) through as little as 20% of the core, with the remaining air left to drift unevenly through the rest of the system.

Core Size Direnza MVT:
500mm x 220mm x 51mm

Core Size Standard Intercooler:
190mm x 175mm x 64mm (x2 Side Mounted)

Design Process
Direnza develops all its performance products in-house…

Following research into rival intercooler designs, over the course of 12 months our engineers carefully honed their MVT concept using state-of-the-art 3D CAD software and CFD modelling analysis.

Not only did our engineers pay great attention to the shape and angle of the intercooler vanes, they developed cast aluminium end tanks with exceptional air flow characteristics.

The result of this work speaks for itself.

Proven Performance
Fitted with our new front mount MVT intercooler kit, our Fiat 500 Abarth showed a power increase of 7.6bhp on the dynamometer – this figure achieved without any engine remapping, or other performance modification.

We are immensely proud of our MVT intercoolers and can’t wait for our customers to experience their amazing benefits.
