During development of our Audi 2.0T Exhaust systems and G.I.A.C. software, we recorded high intake air temperatures. The stock front mount intercooler isn't able to effectively cool the intake charge at that performance level, allowing temperatures to rise and hurt performance as rpms increase. With this in mind, we set out to engineer the AWE Tuning 2.0T Front Mounted Performance Intercooler to bring intake temperatures back under control.

Highlights of the Audi 2.0T Performance Intercoooler:

  • All aluminum construction for maximum heat transfer
  • Efficient bar/plate core construction
  • Cast aluminum end tanks with inlet baffle
  • 2.5 inch diameter mandrel bent aluminum tubing
  • Pressure checked assembly before leaving our factory
  • No effect on OE radiator or A/C systems
  • Fits securely behind stock crash bar

We employed sophisticated Computer Aided Design (CAD) modeling software to design an intercooler that uses an end tank / core package significanty larger than stock while striving to re-use the robust factory hoses and clamps to keep costs down. This end tank design is a proven winner and is in use on multiple platforms. We went through no less then 14 revisions when initially developing it.

While we knew this engine ran very hot, and could really benefit from improved intercooling, the test results shocked even us. The AWE Tuning 2.0T Front Mounted Performance Intercooler was able to reduce Intake Air Temperatures (IATs) by a maximum of 45 degrees Farenheit over stock, a difference of nearly 30%! The massive drop in IATs results in an additional 21 crank hp on a chipped car and completely stable power under the hottest outside conditions.

Whether you are simply running enhanced software, or are planning on a larger turbo upgrade for your car, our intercooler solves heat related issues that come with more turbo boost. Keeping your intake air temperatures low results in more power, better engine output stability when outside temps climb, and the safety margin needed when pushing the limit.

Currently not available for vehicles equipped with Audi Drive Select.
