Title

During development of AWE Tuning 2.0T Q5 Exhaust systems and G.I.A.C. software, we recorded high intake air temperatures. The stock front mount intercooler isn't able to effectively cool the intake charge at that performance level, allowing temperatures to rise and hurt performance as rpms increase. With this in mind, we set out to develop AWE Tuning Q5 Front Mount Intercooler in order to bring intake temperatures back under control.

Highlights of AWE Tuning Q5 FMIC:

  • All aluminum construction for maximum heat transfer
  • Efficient bar/plate core construction
  • Cast aluminum end tanks with inlet baffle
  • 2.5 inch diameter mandrel bent aluminum tubing
  • Pressure checked assembly before leaving AWE Tuning factory
  • No effect on OE radiator or A/C systems
  • Fits securely behind stock crash bar
We employed sophisticated Computer Aided Design (CAD) modeling software to design an intercooler that uses an end tank / core package significantly 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. We went through no less than 14 revisions when initially developing it.

While we knew this engine ran very hot, and could really benefit from improved intercooling, the test results shocked even us. AWE Tuning 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 Tuning car, AWE Tuning intercooler solves all heat related issues that come with more turbo boost. Keeping your Tuning 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 AWE Tuning Q5 FMIC is available.

Please note, the AWE Tuning Performance Front Mounted Intercooler is for racing use only.

Features:
  • Reduce Intake Temps by at least 25%
  • Reduces intercooler heat soak
  • Fits securely behind stock crash bar
  • Reuses OE hoses & clamps
  • Perfect Fitment - Guaranteed
