Integrated Engineering VW MK7/MK8 & Audi 8V/8Y 2.0T & 1.8T Gen 3 | Fits MQB GTI, Golf R, GLI, Golf, A3, S3

IE FDS™ MQB intercoolers for MQB MK7, MK8, 8V, 8Y 2.0T & 1.8T engines are powered by a massive (425mmX621mmX70mm) bar & fin core. This gives you 137% more core volume over the stock intercooler and brings you incredibly efficient cooling properties to combat heat soak, lower intake air temperatures, and keep you in the highest power output possible from your ECU tune and performance hardware upgrades. This is the single largest intercooler on the market today.

FDS (FLOW DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM)

The IE FDS (Flow Distribution System) has proven to distribute charge air uniformly across the inlet end of the core. In contrast to other intercoolers on the market, which rely on natural airflow across the core, our FDS technology uses precisely shaped and placed fins cast into the inlet plenum to fully take advantage of the large core volume effectively using the entire core. As a result, the IE FDS intercooler has been proven to reduce IAT (intake air temperatures) more so than competing intercoolers, thus offering the largest power gains possible.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Increasing the horsepower of your B9 is a simple task with several tunes and upgraded turbos available. However, it is important to keep in mind that increasing horsepower will result in heat soak of the stock intercooler and parasitic power loss. The IE front-mount intercooler system was designed to replace the factory unit directly while utilizing a much larger core and our proven FDS (Flow Distribution System) to effectively utilize that larger core. These features allow for much higher cooling efficiency than the factory system, thus reducing intake air temperatures and safely increasing horsepower output. The IE FDS intercooler is also a direct fit, requiring no cutting, modification, or time-wasting hassle during installation. Read below for more in-depth information on each intercooler feature.

ELIMINATE HEAT SOAK

Heat soak occurs when the heat generated exceeds the cooling capacity of the intercooler. The most common symptom is the noticeable loss of power after long-term acceleration, or several back-to-back power pulls. By greatly increasing the core size and useable area of the core with FDS technology, we have eliminated the heat soak, keeping the intake air temperatures consistently lower than OEM and competitor intercoolers.

PRECISION ENGINEERED

Unlike other intercoolers put together to fit on the car and offer a larger core, the IE FDS intercooler line receives special treatment from start to finish. Our engineering department uses Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software to optimize the end tanks and FDS system for minimum pressure drop and maximum flow and cooling.

DECREASED PRESSURE DROP

Along with lower intake air temperatures, the large core within the IE intercooler also decreases pressure drop compared to the factory unit. Simply put, pressure drop is the amount of pressure that is lost as air travels through the intercooler. As airflow boost pressure is raised, pressure drop typically begins to climb. Using a larger core that flows much more freely than the factory core, the pressure drop is reduced, decreasing the need for the turbocharger to work harder to produce the required boost levels. This allows the turbocharger to deliver more usable boost pressure to the engine. (See dyno chart in power charts tab)

HIGH-QUALITY CONSTRUCTION, PERFECT FITMENT

Not only does it offer the highest cooling efficiency on the market, but the IE FDS intercooler also offers perfect OEM replacement with absolutely minimal modification. It has CNC machined mount points, and every IE intercooler allows you to reuse the factory mounting points and installs as if it were a factory piece. You will also find that the IE intercooler receives the same attention to detail and quality as every other IE product, with cast and machined end tanks, precise TIG welding, and a dense bar and plate core. Every intercooler is tested on our in-house intercooler testing station before shipping, ensuring that it is ready to install.

COMPLETE KIT

The kit comes complete with one FDS intercooler and all hardware needed for installation.

INSTALLATION

Install for the IE B9 FDS Intercooler will require a standard toolset, a couple of torx bits, and some technical expertise. We recommend reviewing our install guide and install an overview video before attempting the install. The installation guide can be found HERE.

HORSEPOWER & TORQUE RESULTS

The IE Audi B9 FDS Intercooler increases horsepower & torque by decreasing IAT (intake air temperature) and reducing knock. This makes your car much more predictable and consistent because it will not rapidly soak like the OE Intercooler.
