AWE 2.7T S4 Dual Side Mount Intercooler

AWE Tuning has done it again. We upgraded the most effective and comprehensively tested intercooler kit on the 2.7T market. To meet customer demand, we are now using the highest quality cast end tanks on our 2.7 turbo kits.

The stock 2.7T intercoolers become a power handicap at high boost levels, which is not surprising considering that the stock 2.7T boost level is just 8-9 psi. Every chip on the market, let alone upgraded turbo kit, runs almost double this boost level. This results in tangible power losses, especially when the outside temperatures rise.

Our final intercooler design uses a closely stacked bar and plate type core, to minimize pressure drops while maximizing heat transfer. Our design target was to exceed the cooling and flow capabilities of the Audi RS4 intercoolers, and we are pleased to provide detailed test results proving our design's superiority. Our intercoolers equal the RS4 intercooler flow rates and definitively conquer the RS4 intercooler temperature drops.

The construction of the AWE Tuning intercoolers is of the highest quality. Efficient cast endtanks are used to ensure maximum flow, and each intercooler assembly is pressure checked before it leaves our manufacturing facility.

Why not a FMIC for the S4?
Several years ago, we were quite successful with a front mounted intercooler system for the S4 installed on the Blitzkreig Beast, holder of the fastest K03 turbo 1/4 mile record.

However, to fit an intercooler core that was larger than just the cumulative volume of both side mounted intercoolers, an RS4 bumper had to be fitted, along with significant modification to the radiator support. The amount of alterations required to fit a front mounted intercooler that had superior performance over dual side intercoolers practically made it a custom one-off installation.

In order to make a front mount intercooler a simple bolt-in design meant seriously compromising its performance characteristics, which we were unwilling to do. To fit behind an unmodified stock S4 front bumper, the intercooler core dimensions had to be reduced significantly. Extensive cutting of the front bumper was not worth the safety compromise in our analysis, given that the vast majority of our clients drive their S4s on public roads.
