GR Corolla Intercooler Kit – CLICK TO ORDER

Chino, California (March 27, 2024) – Jackson Racing and CSF have partnered to develop a line of GR Corolla cooling components. Our first GR Corolla product from the partnership is the GR Corolla Intercooler Kit.

Cooling the intake air temperature on turbo vehicles is critical to maximizing performance, whether you’re on your favorite back road or going flat out on the racetrack. Intercooler efficiency is also important to maintain vehicle performance throughout your drive session.

With a tight front bumper area, the GR Corolla gave us a packaging challenge. After 3D scanning and developing initial prototypes in CAD, we started fine-tuning with prototypes on the car to see where we could gain valuable real estate. We realized we could take advantage of OEM ducting, giving us the ability to do a stepped core that receives frontal air. By co-developing with CSF, we could leverage their top-notch manufacturing capabilities to get a premium product with a stepped tube and fin core designed specifically for the GR Corolla.

The use of a tube and fin core is an important feature in the Jackson Racing x CSF Intercooler kit. Tube and fin cores are lightweight when compared to common bar and plate cores. The lightweight helps keep excess nose weight off the car, keeping the nimble GR Corolla handling characteristics owners love.

The next challenge was adding big HP headroom for racers. From the start, the JR x CSF intercooler was designed with 2” inlet and outlets on the core to allow for upgradeability on high HP builds. For OEM+ installations, we include race-grade transition hoses and clamps that fit with the OEM tubing.

We are excited to have this new product out to enthusiasts and bring the best to the GR Corolla platform. We look forward to seeing you at the track!


• 90+ºF more temperature drop vs OEM
• Lower temperature rise vs OEM
• Improved resistance to heat soak
• Increased efficiency across the RPM range

The OEM intercooler was run first to check the heat soak temperatures. You can see the OEM intercooler reaches heat soak quickly. Also, the OEM intercooler is only able to shed about 150ºF of temperature in total.

Next, we ran the Jackson Racing x CSF Intercooler. The JR x CSF intercooler sheds 240+ºF of temperature and takes significantly longer to get to heat soak.

Cooler temperatures, improved temperature resistance, and overall better performance. It’s all here with the JR x CSF intercooler!

Race Report: 2016 SCCA Majors Tour Round 2

The 2016 SCCA Majors Round 2 at Willow Springs International Raceway

Chino, California (February 22, 2016) – Jackson Racing heads to Willow Springs International Raceway in Rosamond, CA for Round 2 of the SCCA Majors Tour.


Round 2 of the SCCA Western Conference Majors Tour was filled with excitement! A stacked class in STL and the addition to quite a few competitors in the STU class, made for some great racing and a fun weekend!

Saturday qualifying went extremely well. The weather conditions, and a clean track led to fast lap times and our driver, Oscar Jackson Jr. drove the Hasport/Jackson Racing CRX to the Pole Position in STL. Teammate Clint Boisdeau was right behind in his MotoIQ Civic. Although the CRX would start out front, there was some fast cars in the class and the competition would be tough.

The Saturday STL race was exciting from the drop of the green flag! After a odd split start that didn’t quite go as planned, the CRX was out in front with the rest of the class following close behind.  There was an intense 3-way battle between the CRX, Integra, and an RX3. In the end the Hasport/Jackson Racing CRX came away with the second spot, with Clint Boisdeau in 3rd right behind.


Round 2 brought out a lot of new competitors in the STU class. The new cars that came out were finely prepped, and it would not be an easy race. Thanks to APR Performance, the Jackson Racing FR-S had some new aero components for the weekend and the team worked hard to dial them in. Oscar Jr., again, got the FR-S on pole with some wickedly fast times in Saturday qualifying.

The Jackson Racing FR-S started on pole and quickly started pulling away from the pack. The new APR Performance aero package paired with the BFGoodrich R1-S race tires gave Oscar Jr. the grip he needed to keep a fast pace all the way to the end for the win!


The team decided to make some suspension adjustments to the CRX for the Sunday STL race in preparation for another battle with the very well sorted Integra. The CRX jumped out to a early lead ahead of the Integra. Unfortunately, Oscar Jr. was slowed by some other class racers and losing the momentum cost the CRX the lead. Oscar Jr. did a great job trying to catch the leader, but the Integra was just out of reach. The Hasport/Jackson Racing CRX took 2nd, with Clint Boisdeau rounding out the podium in 3rd.


The Jackson Racing FR-S started on Pole again for Sunday. An S2000 came out of the gates fast and got to the inside and was leading exiting turn 1. Oscar Jr. was able to quickly get the lead back and push forward. The FR-S continued to keep a fast pace for the remainder of the race to finish first. The FR-S has been running fantastic and the Jackson Racing team looks forward to seeing how the car will perform at its first visit to Thunderhill Raceway in April for Round 3 of the Majors Tour.
