This intercooler for the TTRS is a triumph of engineering; allowing much more surface area and cooling efficiency than the stock core, whilst requiring NO cutting of the bumper at all.
Our core uses up all the space the Audi had failed to take advantage of. The core measures a massive 560x150x150mm (22x6x6?) and is of bar and plate design. The end tanks are designed such that the standard boost hoses can be retained, along with the standard fittings from the stock core. Total fitting time is only around 3 hours if you take your time, and can be fitted on a driveway if necessary.
We have seen excellent results on both standard cars and those which have been remapped. On a typical standard car we see gains of 15bhp and 15lb/ft of torque in back to back testing. On remapped cars, this goes up to an average of 20bhp and 15lb/ft, again in back to back testing. Remember that you could then get your map tailored to suit your new intercooler so the gains could be even more impressive ! Temperature drops are in the order of 20 deg C at the intercooler outlet, and the inlet temperature drops too compared to the stock core, indicating that the turbo does not have to work as hard, despite the fact the engine now makes more power.
This intercooler is available as a special order in black finish for an additional cost of ??55. Please contact us if you require this option as delivery times may be increased.
