Intercooler Upgrade

Featuring a 60mm core design together with high-flow cast end tanks, the AIRTEC intercooler offers much greater surface area, efficiencyand volume over standard. Despite this improvement, it fits neatly behind the originalbumper, requires no trimming or cutting and can be used with the original hoses.

As with all AIRTEC products, the intercooler was tested back-to-back on the dyno against the OEM item. This showed a huge reduction in air charge temperatures over standard.

Our test car was fitted with a Cobra cat-back exhaust system and running Revo Stage 1 software.

Stock intercooler temps reduce to an average of 64 degrees and peak at 68 degrees(after 5 back-to-back runs). On the Stage 1 Revo software, the car struggled to produce a peak power increase of 40bhp, due to the restrictive and inefficient OEM VW intercooler being unable to cool the intake temperatures effectively.

With the AIRTEC intercooler fitted, the IAT saw a huge drop of 120 degrees, keeping temps much closer to ambient temperature and proving to be more reliable run after run. This gave a huge increase in performance, shown by the dyno test results from AmD Tuning rolling road test day.

Big Boost Pipe Kit

AIRTEC Motorsport big boost pipe kit for the MQB EA888.3 platform. Designed to increase power and torque figures by replacing the standard restrictive boost pipes and improving air flow.

With larger internal diameters on the pipework, less restriction means a smoother air flow and an increase of power.

Kit comprises of smooth larger, mandrel bent hard pipes and is supplied with a full set of Pro Hoses silicone hoses including from the turbo outlet to the hot-side boost pipe.

The AIRTEC big boost pipe kit is designed as a direct replacement of the OEM parts, eliminating restrictions found on the stock charge pipe while allowing enough clearance from engine parts, increasing performance in the process.

We have designed the kit using 63mm hot-side pipework to keep air speed high and reduce the effects of turbo lag on big power cars. For the cold-side pipework this increases to a massive 70mm to ensure maximum air flow and volume is achieved at the throttle body to maximise performance.

Please note: Big boost pipe kit will NOT fit with 7 speed gearbox.
