Replacement front mount intercooler for non-acc equipped Audi RS3 8v's
This larger Wager Tuning intercooler comes with its own integrated crass bar to get around the restrictions of trying to make a larger intercooler fit in with the OEM crash bar. This intercooler is a must-have upgrade on any level of tuning as it keeps the charge temps down and the power levels consistent.
Important note: We recommend to use the standard version for power applications up to 600HP and the X-version for power application above 600HP.
The high-performance intercooler has the following core dimension (515mm x 367mm x 95mm = 16,5L/14,45Inch x 3,74Inch = 1006,9Inch³) and this offers an 84% larger cooling surface and 101% more charge air volume compared to the original intercooler. Our engineers have increased the intercooler core size and efficiency, as well as improved the end tank design to remove any OEM bottlenecks, resulting in increased flow rating and charge cooling properties.
This Audi RS3 intercooler uses our award-winning WAGNERTUNING Competition Intercooler Core, which is made specifically for this application. Constructed of the highest quality TUBE and FIN intercooler cores with inside turbulators combined with cast aluminium end tanks optimised by CFD for best possible internal airflow. With the help of additional air guides, inside inlet, a uniform filling of the intercooler is provided.
The result is excellent cooling properties with minimum pressure drop. So this kit is just the right thing for racing. The intercooler and the cross member form a stable unit and weigh only 14,3 kg. It is mounted to the original mounting points and is easy to perform (1:1 exchange). Optimum cooling of the charged air with a clear increase in performance! 68mm (2,67Inch) in- and outlets.
