Unitronic Direct Fit Intercooler Kit for 1.8/2.0 TSI
Unitronic's Intercooler Upgrade Kit for the 1.8/2.0 TSI Gen3 is a direct OEM replacement kit with the ability to support 600HP and more! Featuring a massive 23.5" x 2" x 16.5" bar and plate intercooler core made from T5052 aluminum, T6061 cast aluminum end tanks, proprietary internal fin and louver configuration, and a TIG welded construction, Unitronic's Intercooler upgrade will resist heat-soak and provide optimal and efficient cooling in any driving conditions
Uniitronic performed back to back stress testing using its 2015 VW Jetta 1.8TSI Gen3 to show the performance benefits over the OEM Intercooler. The vehicle was equipped with Unitronic’s 1.8/2.0 TSI Gen3 Turbo-Back Exhaust and 1.8/2.0 TSI Gen3 Cold Air Intake during the tests. Testing was done on our in-house Dynapack Chassis Dyno and appropriate data acquisition tools were used collect pre- and post- intercooler air temperatures. All data was collected on the same day, starting with the OEM Intercooler testing first. Temperature probes were tapped into the inlet and outlets of the intercooler cores. Ambient air temperature varied slightly throughout the day between 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit (21 – 24 degrees Celsius) and humidity was steady at around 50% using the Dynapack’s weather station. The testing consisted of 9 consecutive 15-second duration dyno runs (ramp test) allowing the vehicle to idle for 10-seconds in between each run for both the OEM and Unitronic Intercooler.
Unitronic’s Intercooler provides dramatic reductions in outlet temperatures (IATs), as the accompanied data graphs illustrate. By the end of the first run, the Unitronic Intercooler had already displayed an outlet temp. decrease of 17*C/-30*F at redline (6500rpm). On the ninth run and the end of the test, the Unitronic Intercooler showed its efficiency over the OE unit by reducing the outlet temperatures by 24*C/43*F when compared to the OEM 1.8 TSI Intercooler.
