USRT DSG "ICECAP" Cooling System


USRT DSG "ICECAP" Cooling System

The latest from the USRT R&D labs, The DSG transmission cooler adapter plate system makes adding an auxiliary radiator to your Audi or VW as easy as Eskimo pie.

A necessity for those hot days:

When the vehicle temperature reaches 138°C/280°F, the Mechatronics initiates a reduction in engine torque. At temperatures above 145°C/293°F, the multi-disc clutches are no longer provided with fluid pressure and the clutches open to protect the transmission. If you've ever taken your vehicle to the track on a hot day, chances are that you've experienced this DSG overheating limp mode.

With the USRT "ICECAP" this limp mode will never stop you again!

Instead, your 02E DSG gearbox will remain calm, cool, and collected during  track adventures, autobahn escapades, or any other torture test.

The OEM design circulates transmission oil through a heatsink full of HOT engine "coolant".

The USRT "ICECAP" attaches to the original mount holes with no modifications to the transmission needed.
