Complete Customization 

PHR offers many hot side intercooler piping options on the shelf and ready to ship. But when you need something that requires customization, here is where to get that done.

PHR will build a complete hot side intercooler pipe for your MKIV Supra, Lexus SC300, GS300 or IS300. We build on a chassis here at our shop to ensure that it will fit on your car.

You must contact PHR prior to ordering this. You must supply the turbo manifold, turbo, and/or intercooler to PHR for fitment on our mock up chassis unless it is deemed unnecessary. This price is for the basic coupler to turbo and coupler to intercooler style intercooler piping. If needing a different clamping style, the cost of the pipe will not change, but customer will need to purchase the additional flange and clamp assemblies.

Details are important

Exhaust Manifold Fitment

PHR provides more exhuast manifold options than any other source in the world. You will need to tell us what manifold you are using, or possibly send yours to us so we can get just the fitment just right.

Picture of a Supra Turbo Manifold

Depending on what turbo you go with, we recommend different intercooler piping:

H-Cover

If you are running an H-Cover turbo (3.0" Outlet), you are in the right spot. This is the custom-made intercooler piping we recommend.



S-Cover

When considering S-cover turbos (2.5" Outlet), it would make more sense to go with our 2.5" hot side intercooler piping, found in this link.

Sportsman Cover

If you have a Sportsman Cover turbo, you are in the right spot. This is the custom-made intercooler piping we recommend. But, you need to add the mating compressor outlet v-band flange and clamp. You will have the option to add those items to the cart when you click "Add to cart" above after making your selections for options.

Intercooler Styles

Most popular intercoolers for the MKIV Supra utilize a straight entry design for the hot side intercooler piping. But for years, Greddy has been supplying their 3-Row intercoolers which has an end tank design that angles back. This changes the location and angle we have to align our intercooler to.

We need to know what style of intercooler you utilize. Here's how to tell the difference.    

If you have something other than one of these style, we may need to have you send you intercooler to us to make sure we get the fitment just right.

Features and Solutions

Focusing on what's important

Single Turbo Conversion

Our Hot Side (Drop-Down) Intercooler pipes are made specifically to fit the needs of the do-it-yourself enthusiast switching to single turbo setup. This kit is customizable to fit a variety of intercooler and manifold combinations.

Construction

Made of top-quality light weight aluminum CNC mandrel bends. Mandrel bends allow for optimal flow. The end of each section is bead rolled to keep couplers from slipping off.

Under the frame rail

The drop-down design of these pipes route underneath the frame rail, and around to the intercooler. This will require removal or trimming of the inner fender well plastics panels and bracket. These plastic panels and brackets block debris from the tires from entering the engine bay, and also hold up the lower plasic panels. 


We've found that removal doesn't make much of a difference for debris or dirt entering, but if you are in an excpetionally dusty or dirty area (like living on a dirt road), we'd recommend trimming the panels to fit around the piping rather than removing them. If you do choose to remove them, you will need to add some zip ties or other holding method to the lower panels as well to keep them secure.



Worm Gear Clamps

When considering worm gear clamps vs T-bolt clamps for the solution to clamping the couplers to the aluminum intercooler tubing, we've found that worm gear clamps are the best for this application. T-bolt clamps can create too much force, and end up colapsing the tubing, making for a looser connection over time. 


They also are not optimal for the space provided behind the bead roll due to the extra wide bannd, and often clamp over the bead roll instead of behind it on the tubing. This can create poor clamping.


In our experiance, worm gear clamps offer the superior clamping solution in this application, and we use only the highest quality stainless worm gear clamps availble.

Boost Braces

For high boost applications when you might even more holding capability, boost braces can be added across the couplet to create an mechanical link, that virtually ensures the pipes cannot separate the coupler cannot pop off.


If you want to add boost braces, you will need to have the bolt bosses welded to the tubing, turbo, and/or intercooler. PHR can provide this service, but you will need to contact us to do so.


You will need one boost kit for each connection you want to make. 3 Kits would cover each connection on this kit.
