The ECS Tuning Luft-Technik Front Mount Intercooler and Charge Pipe Kit was designed and engineered in-house to provide you with a direct bolt-on system to increase air flow, decrease restrictions, and drastically lower temps!
The R&D team at ECS Tuning?has spent countless hours creating and testing a system to optimize?performance and efficiency while providing?the?clean look that Audi owners have come to expect. We designed the intercooler and charge pipe kit to be a direct mount, resulting in a simple install for a complete cooling solution.??
ECS Tuning's Luft-Technik Intercooler features an aluminum bar and plate core with?cast aluminum end tanks, finished in a silver powder coat with the?embossed ECS Tuning logo. The core is not only thicker (3.5" compared to OEM at 3") but it offers a 65.5% increase in frontal area compared to stock intercooler.? Each intercooler is pressure tested to withstand a minimum of 3.5 bar and designed to increase power, improve efficiency, and reduce?heat soak. Our engineers provided a?proper?fit by utilizing factory mounting locations?and ensuring that no trimming or cutting would be necessary, making installation completely reversible.
Our Charge Pipe Kit includes a 5-ply silicone turbo outlet pipe to optimize air flow path.? The intercooler outlet pipe is made of 6063 aluminum and features a diameter of?70mm.? Designed to be a direct fit, the hard pipe maintains the factory MAP sensor location and comes with all necessary hardware.? The aluminum pipe is a great replacement for the brittle factory plastic pipe and also deletes the noise chamber; resulting in an increase in turbo sound!
Increasing the surface area by using a larger more efficient core design and providing a smoother air path,?we were able to?lower temps by 65 degrees while increasing the intercoolers efficiency by 105% percent!? The temperature and efficiency data shows that there is a significant reduction in air temperature leaving the intercooler, which will lead to power gains in high stress and high temperature conditions while reducing the strain on the engine.??During dyno testing, gains of 30 HP and 40 lbft of torque were measured!
This system is capable of withstanding greater heat and higher boost pressure over factory.? The Luft-Technik Intercooler System?was designed with a focus on improving performance while maintaining OEM fitment with the use of quality parts.?Attention to detail is never missed here at ECS Tuning, and this?is no exception.
