Product Description

*Please note - This will not fit Audi S3 facelift 2017 onwards - Some modifcation to Audi S3 and TTS may be necessary*

This is our intercooler for the Mk7 Golf, MK7R, Audi TT MK3 2.0 TSI and S3 (8V chassis) fitted with the EA888 2.0 TSI engine. Volkswagen group have changed just about everything from the Mk6 to the Mk7 chassis, so this core has had to be designed from scratch in order to fit in with the redesigned radiator and condenser.

  • Reduced turbo lag, increased response
  • Designed for VW Golf GTI (Mk7) for perfect fitment
  • Greater overall surface area for greater heat dissipation
  • Utilising a race specification Forge Alsus designed bar and plate construction air core
  • High flow cast end tanks ensuring optimum air transition for cooling efficiency
  • Dyno proven horsepower and torque gains
  • Provides smoother power curve
  • Dimensions: 650x420x50mm
  • Includes necessary hardware and instructions for installation

The core fits in the stock location meaning cooling is radically improved over OEM. Our test Golf Mk7 GTI achieved 16bhp more without any other modifications whilst also demonstrating a consistant 25-30°C (77-88°F temperature drop over stock on the dyno, with all runs performed on the same day with only a 2°C variation in ambient temperature over the runs (in fact it was 2°C hotter when we tested the Forge core). The core measure 650x420x50.

You can also see the tempertature drop comparison of the stock and Forge cores in the graph below.

The stock core typically increased in temperature by 5°C on each subsequent run, with heat soak becoming a real issue after only three runs. The stock ECU was pulling timing and boost after only one run – typically anything over 40°C inlet temperature will cause the ECU to change ignition timing to suit – and the stock core peaked at 60°C on its first run, where the Forge core was able to get temperatures back under control after each run so that by the end of 4 back to back runs the core temperature had only risen by 4°C.

All of this was achieved on a stock car (it should be noted that although Volkswagen claim 220bhp for this new engine we have seen examples range from 230 to 240bhp completely stock, on the same rolling road). We are confident that the core will continue to deliver a much lower intake charge temperature than stock across all states of tune, as its based on our award winning Mk5/Mk6 intercooler which has been fitted with great success on everything from road and track cars, to full blown race and drag cars.

The core comes in a satin black light powder coated finish, and includes all mounting hardware necessary for installation.

"Purchased and fitted this uprated intercooler to my 2014 mk7 golf gti.
I found that dropping the coolant out of the radiator and removing the complete front panel was far easier as you have to slightly grind some plastic off the front panel to get the small clamps to fit (these clamp the radiator to the intercooler) I had previously replaced the radiator and found this a very straight forward process for an experienced mechanic. Also you have to cut out a couple bits of plastic off the front panel to gain access to the small bolts that clamp the air con radiator to the intercooler.
You also have to remove a plastic trim/runner that’s on the top of the radiator to fit it back into the front panel. And also the two large self tapping screws that are supplied to hold the intercooler onto the front panel are too big. But aside from a small amount of modifying to the front panel, I can say on first impressions the quality and design is spot on. Visually you can clearly see a significant size increase whilst retaining the factory location and fitment. The car is yet to be mapped but I have no doubt this intercooler will do its job perfectly!"
