We love the MQB platform, and we mean that. There is no shortage of untapped performance in the 2.0T, and it is an all around awesome platform that delivers fun. With that said, we have noticed that many people forget to upgrade the intercooler. We are huge believers in parts that not only FIT properly, but WORK flawlessly. And the Racingline / VWR intercooler system does both - and it does them very well.
Unfortunately, the factory intercooler is unable to keep up with the demands of higher power and cars that are driven hard. Whether you have a upgraded turbo setup or a few bolt-ons, you will beneift from this upgrade! The giant 56mm core depth of the system uses a careful optimised fin design, delivering the utlimate 'sweet spot' of meximum IAT cooling versus minimum pressure loss. This so-called 'sweet spot' has allowed Racingline to use a large volume core without increased lag.
The Racingline Intercooler System is a direct bolt-on replacement for the stock intercooler. While we love throwing money at cars, and we'd boldly state every modification is a great choice; we firmly believe that the intercooler upgrade is an essential piece of the modding journey for your MQB!
