The factory radiator found in the VW/Audi 2.0T TSI application was engineered to only support stock power outputs and last within a set service life. All too often when more power is demanded the cooling system becomes stressed and can shed only so much heat, in so much time. The ECS Tuning in-house engineered Performance Aluminum Radiator utilizes a larger volume, dual row, dual-pass aluminum heat exchanger that is hand TIG-welded to 5052 aluminum end tanks and polished to perfection. Featuring a 20% increase in overall volume compared to stock, this is a direct replacement radiator that will outperform and outlast the OE unit!
Our radiator utilizes all factory mounts, fan shroud, hose connections and CBFA-specific PremAir® Sensor for a direct OE upgrade WITHOUT modifications to any other components

Our ECS Performance Aluminum Radiator was designed, engineered, tested and quality inspected by our Research and Development team in our Wadsworth, Ohio facility. We strive for the highest level of precision and quality through leading-edge product development technology including FARO laser scanning for reverse engineering and quality inspection, SolidWorks 3D CAD modeling, rapid prototyping utilizing our in-house 3D printer, and rigorous long term product testing.
INSTALLATION AND SUPPORT
Looking for installation tips? Look no further, we put together a full installation tutorial from start to finish, including how to remove your bumper and other parts, in detail! See our Installation PDF under the INSTALLATION Tab for more information.
Please note that installation accessories are not included. Please see our full installation kit (ES4030589) with this radiator, for a complete package.
Due to vibrations, we recommend a few drops of medium-strength thread locking compound to be applied to the radiator fan shroud mounting screws. For your convenience, we've included a small tube for this purpose.
