The factory intercooler on the A5-platform 2.0TFSI EA113 cars (such as Golf 5 GTI, Golf 6R, Scirocco R, Audi S3 8P) just is not able to cope with the demands of higher power, hard driven cars, resulting in significant power losses during hard driving.
By consistently reducing intake air temperatures (IAT), heat soak is minimised delivering increased performance again and again. No need for the recovery cool-down times needed for the production intercooler.
Our development focussed on finding the ‘sweet spot’ of maximum IAT cooling versus minimum pressure loss. This has allowed us to achieve increased size without increased lag.
Included in the kit are 2 high-strength silicon boost hoses and a CNC-machined billet push-fit adaptor to fit the factory boost pipe.
This really is an essential for every stage of tuning on any high performance 2.0 TFSI car.
The massive 'plate & bar' intercooler unit features a high-speed core using extra tall internal tubes for maximum boost flow.
Highly effective aluminium plate & bar construction, with fully welded cast end tanks following rigorous testing to optimise core dimensions, fin density, and pipe flow.
Smooth cast construction for minimal turbulence and restriction delivering maximum flow across the entire core depth.
PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE.
Massive 56mm core depth of our 'Plate & Bar' system uses careful optimised fin design.
Giant core dimensions of 610mm x 410mm x 56mm (24” x 16.14” x 2.2”)
2 high-strength silicon boost hoses and a CNC-machined billet push-fit adaptor to fit the factory boost pipe.
Don't confuse our 'Plate & Bar' construction with the cheaper and less-effective 'Tube & Fin' construction that most aftermarket intercoolers use.
It's all about air intake temperatures.
The OEM factory intercooler on the A5-platform 2.0TFSI EA113 cars struggles to contain the all-important air intake temperatures once power is upgraded.
As intake air temperatures begin to rise rapidly, heat soak occurs, resulting in significant power losses the harder the car's used.
The RacingLine Intercooler makes a great difference in controlling temperatures, meaning that your power increases keep on delivering, run after run.
