Product Details

With our build-your-own intercooler upgrade kit you get to choose between our ECS Tuning silicone replacement boost hoses or go all out with our complete intercooler charge pipe kit to replace the power-robbing, undersized tubes from the turbo, to the throttle body, all to work perfectly with our ECS Tuning In-House Engineered MQB Cast Aluminum Intercooler Upgrade!

 

INTERCOOLER FEATURES:

The ECS Tuning MQB Cast Aluminum Intercooler Upgrade boosts power and lowers intercooler outlet temps by maximizing core volume and more efficiently dispelling heat over the OEM sandwich-mounted intercooler. Designed and engineered by our in-house R&D Team to replace the under-performing stock intercooler, our intercooler is more efficient at cooling the turbocharged air with less pressure drop than stock. The factory tube and fin intercooler is not up to the task of shedding heat efficiently at higher power levels. If you plan to go above stock boost levels an intercooler upgrade is a must. With our ECS Tuning OE-Location Intercooler Upgrade we recorded lower intercooler outlet temperatures, lower pressure drop and an increase in cooling system efficiency. 

Our design features high quality cast aluminum end tanks with integral flow dividers on the intercooler inlet for even flow distribution across our massive 24.5” x 16.5” x 2.0” {808.5 in³} aluminum bar and plate core, which lends to an increase in volume of +39% over the OEM GTI intercooler, for maximum heat dissipation. Our intercooler was in-house engineered to provide a bolt-on cooling solution for the VW and Audi MQB Gen3 platform. Through our in-house evaluation on our ECS Shop MK7 GTI, we measured a maximum increase of +20 WHP @ 5,750 RPM and +18 WTQ @ 5,750 RPM along with an increase of +22% in cooling efficiency at redline and -90° F. lower intercooler outlet temperatures. 

 

PART DESIGN

  • 3D CAD designed to allow the best placement and larger volume core over stock all while requiring no modifications to your vehicle 

  • Retains all OEM cooling air guides and mounting features. Compatible with forward collision warning radar, if equipped.

  • Aluminum Straight Vane Bar and Plate Core: 24.5” x 16.5” x 2.0” (808.5 in³ internal core volume) 

  • Raw Cast Aluminum End Tanks with smooth-flowing internal inlet and outlet flow-paths 

    • Cast 60mm barbed connections keep hoses secured and minimizes the risk of hoses blowing off and allows compatibility with OEM and ECS intercooler hoses

    • Internal flow dividers on the intercooler inlet ensures an even flow distribution between the entire surface of the intercooler core 

    • End tanks are TIG welded to the intercooler core and the complete assembly is pressure tested to 3.5 BAR at 0% leak down to ensure sealing capacity

    • Cast mounting features are precision machined to ensure quality fitment 

 

KIT CONTENTS

  • ECS MQB Cast Aluminum Intercooler 

  • A/C Condenser Locking Plates with Hardware 

 

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

Dyno tested on our In-House Mustang Dyno on our shop 2015 MK7 GTI 2.0T 6 speed manual, comparing the OEM GTI intercooler to our ECS Tuning MQB OE-Fitment Upgrade. Please see our documented results under the INSTALLATION Tab for more information. 

Vehicle Modifications: APR Stage 2 Hi-Torque 93 Octane Tune, Milltek 3.0" Catted Turbo-Back Exhaust, ECS Kohlefaser Luft-Technik Intake, ECS Charge Pipes 

  • +20 WHP @ 5,750 RPM and +18 WTQ @ 5,750 RPM

  • 90° Fahrenheit lower intercooler outlet temperature drop over 3 consecutive dyno pulls 

  • 81° Fahrenheit lower intercooler temperature rise over 3 consecutive dyno pulls

  •  +22% more efficient at 6,250 RPM (+10% at lower engine speeds, 1,750 RPM - 2,750 RPM)

  • 0.5 PSI lower pressure drop at 6,250 RPM

 

 

SILICONE CHARGE PIPE COUPLERS:

The factory MQB Gen3 charge pipe couplers were never designed to handle the stress and abuse of higher boost levels much beyond stock. When combined with power-robbing abrupt, sharp bends and inferior rubber material, it's easy to see why your squishy, OEM intercooler couplers should be replaced, even on stock vehicles. 

At ECS Tuning, we're proud to release our very own Silicone Charge Pipe Coupler Kit! Each kit comes standard with silicone, 4-ply reinforced couplers and heavy duty Clampco stainless steel T-Bolt hose clamps for an easy, direct fit replacement that won't blow off! 

Capable of withstanding greater heat and higher boost pressure than stock, you can expect to achieve greater reliability, less turbulence and less restriction. 

 

HIGH FLOW INTERCOOLER CHARGE PIPE KIT:

The factory MQB Gen3 plastic charge pipes and rubber couplers were never designed to handle the stress and abuse of higher boost levels much beyond stock. When combined with power-robbing abrupt and sharp bends, inferior rubber material, and small diameter tubing, it's easy to see why your intercooler pipes and couplers should be replaced, even on stock vehicles. 

  • Reduces turbulence and increases air flow capacity
  • Gains up to 10 WHP & 10 FT-lbs of torque with APR Stage 2 93 octane software, 3.0" Milltek turboback exhaust and ECS Kohlefaser Luft-Technik Air Intake with our High Flow Turbo Outlet Pipe Kit and Throttle Pipe Kit (Gains measured on MK7 Golf R)
  • Mandrel bent and bead rolled aluminum tubing, powder coated in tough wrinkle black or wrinkle red finishes
  • Replaces all rubber hoses from turbocharger-to-intercooler and intercooler-to-throttle body with 4-ply silicone upgrades
  • CNC machined MAP flange TIG welded to intercooler pipe
  • Replaces all rubber hoses from intercooler-to-throttle body with 4-ply silicone upgrades
  • Easy, direct replacement upgraded part
