AWE employed sophisticated Computer Aided Design (CAD) modeling software to design an intercooler that uses an end tank / core package significanty larger than stock while striving to re-use the robust factory hoses and clamps to keep costs down. This end tank design is a proven winner and is in use on multiple platforms.
This FMIC was able to reduce Intake Air Temperatures (IATs) by a maximum of 31 degrees F over stock, a difference of nearly 25%! The massive drop in IATs will yield even better performance in warmer climates and higher power applications.
Whether you are simply running enhanced software, or are planning on a larger turbo upgrade for your car, the AWE intercooler solves all heat related issues that come with more turbo boost. Keeping your intake air temperatures low results in more power, better engine output stability when outside temps climb, and the safety margin needed when pushing the limit.
Currently not available for vehicles equipped with Audi Drive Select. If your car has this option, please contact us and we will let you know when a Q5 FMIC is available.
