*Please note – This will not fit Audi S3 facelift 2017 onwards – Some modification to Audi S3 and TTS may be necessary*
This is our intercooler for the Mk7 Golf, MK7R, Audi TT MK3 2.0 TSI and S3 (8V chassis) fitted with the EA888 2.0 TSI engine. Volkswagen group has changed just about everything from the Mk6 to the Mk7 chassis, so this core has had to be designed from scratch in order to fit in with the redesigned radiator and condenser.
Reduced turbo lag, increased response
Designed for VW Golf GTI (Mk7) for perfect fitment
Greater overall surface area for greater heat dissipation
Utilising a race specification Forge Alsus designed bar and plate construction air core
High flow cast end tanks ensuring optimum air transition for cooling efficiency
Dyno proven horsepower and torque gains
Provides smoother power curve
Includes necessary hardware and instructions for installation
The core fits in the stock location meaning cooling is radically improved over OEM. Our test Golf Mk7 GTI achieved 16bhp more without any other modifications whilst also demonstrating a consistent 25-30°C (77-88°F temperature drop overstock on the dyno, with all runs performed on the same day with only a 2°C variation in ambient temperature over the runs (in fact it was 2°C hotter when we tested the Forge core). The core measure 650x420x50.
