AWE Tuning Performance Intercoolers
Presenting the AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT Performance Intercooler Kit. Cast End Tanks. Drop in Intake Air Temperature. Backed by AWE Tuning R&D. If you’re serious about consistent and proven power, read on.
During development of AWE Tuning’s 750R Turbo Kit for the 997.2TT, we experienced excessively high intake air temperatures. Since an OEM option was not available, and our power goals were well north of 700hp, we undertook the task to construct a completely new intercooler system. As with all AWE Tuning Intercoolers, a cast end tank was designed in house using sophisticated CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software. Once the end tanks were cast by the foundry, they were then machined on our CNC mill, welded to specially designed cores, and then power tested and refined on our chassis dynamometer.
Compared to stock, the AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT Performance Intercoolers’ cores are 37% larger (422 cubic inches vs 308 cubic inches). In contrast to the stock cores, AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT Performance Intercoolers are a high flow bar and plate style and are built to our charge row and fin count specs. These specifications resulted in improved intake temperatures and improved drop pressure resistance through the core. Considering that extremely little trimming is involved to fit such effective units to the car, this is a huge engineering feat.
AWE Tuning 997.2TT Performance Intercooler Highlights
- Efficient bar/plate core style
- Cast and machined end tanks for optimized air flow
- Thick silicone boost hoses with proper profile where they mate to turbo
- T-bolt clamps for extreme clamping force
- Direct plug and play install that is easily reversible
- Lower IATs
- Dyno verified max gains of 23 crank hp and 17crank tq
In addition to the superior core and end tank design, the AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT Performance Intercooler kit also features 6-ply silicone hoses with gentle curves to prevent bursting under pressure. They are attached to the intake and turbos by stainless steel high force t-bolt clamps, and a molded lip is integrated where the hoses meet the turbos to imitate the factory locking mechanism. Further, our hoses use a Nomex braiding for superior strength, instead of more common polyester. The very best materials and industry leading engineering separate this kit from all others on the market.
Whether you are simply running enhanced software, or are planning on a larger turbo upgrade for your car, the AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2 Performance Intercoolers are exactly what you need to solve all heat related issues that come with more turbo boost.
