Racingline VWR Intercooler System - MQB Based VW Mk7, Audi 8V A3 Models
The VWR Intercooler System is the best performing intercooler upgrade on offer for the MQB-platform Golf 7 GTI, R and Audi S3, with proven race championship performance to back that up. The factory intercooler has shown itself to be unable to cope with the demands of higher power, hard driven cars.
By consistently reducing intake air temperatures (IAT), heat soak is minimised delivering increased performance again and again without the recovery cool-down times needed for the production intercooler. It really is essential for every stage of tuning on any high performance MQB-platform car
The giant 56mm core depth of our 'Plate & Bar' system uses careful optimised fin design, delivering the ‘sweet spot’ of maximum IAT cooling versus minimum pressure loss. This has allowed us to achieve increased size without increased lag. Don't confuse our Plate & Bar construction with the cheaper and less-effective Tube & Fin construction that many lower-quality aftermarket intercoolers use.
Dramatically lower intake air temperatures (IAT) increases horsepower while minimizing the power-robbing heat soak from the standard 'cooler, time after time.
Maximum Core Size:
The massive 'plate & bar' intercooler unit features a high-speed core using extra tall internal tubes for maximum boost flow.
Careful maximisation of the factory location allows exceptional airflow across the intercooler core without impacting airflow behind it.
Sophisticated Core Design:
Highly effective UK-made aluminium plate & bar construction, with fully welded cast end tanks following rigorous testing to optimise core dimensions, fin density, and pipe flow.
Smooth Cast End Tanks:
UK cast construction for minimal turbulence and restriction delivering maximum flow across the entire core depth.
Minimal modification required with no trimming, cutting, or any non-reversible modification required on Golf 7 (some trimming may be required on other MQB cars).
It's all about air intake temperatures.
The OEM factory intercooler on the MQB-platform 2.0 TSI cars struggles with containing the all-important air intake temperatures once upgrades such as ECU tuning, exhaust systems, and turbo upgrades are introduced. Intake air temperatures begin to rise rapidly, heat soak occurs, resulting in significant power losses.
The RacingLine VWR Intercooler makes a great difference in controlling temperatures, meaning that your power increases keep on delivering, run after run.
