AIRTEC Motorsport are proud to introduce the front mount intercooler upgrade for the VAG MQB EA888.3 platform.
This freer-flowing intercooler is a direct replacement for the smaller and more restrictive OEM set up.
Fits the following vehicles:
- Volkswagen Golf Mk7/7.5 R – 2.0 TSI
- Volkswagen Golf Mk7/7.5 GTI incl. Clubsport and Clubsport S – 2.0 TSI
- Seat Leon Cupra 265/280/300 – 2.0 TSI (Will not fit 2018 onwards).
- Seat Leon – 1.9/2.0 TSI
- Audi S3 8V (Hatchback and Saloon variants) – 2.0 TSI
- Audi TTS 8S – 2.0 TSI
- Audi TT 8S – 1.8/2.0 TSI
- Audi A3 8V – 1.8/2.0 TSI
- Skoda Octavia vRS – 2.0 TSI
Featuring a 60mm core design together with high-flow cast end tanks, the AIRTEC intercooler offers much greater surface area, efficiency and volume over standard. Despite this improvement, it fits neatly behind the original bumper, requires no trimming or cutting.
As with all AIRTEC products, the intercooler was tested back-to-back on the dyno aginist the OEM item. This showed a huge reduction in air charge temperatures over standard.
Our test car was fitted with a Cobra cat-back exhaust system and running Revo Stage 1 software.
Stock intercooler temps reduce to an average of 64 degrees and peak at 68 degrees (after 5 back-to-back runs). On the Stage 1 Revo software, the car struggled to produce a peak power increase of 40bhp, due to the restrictive and inefficient OEM VW intercooler being unable to cool the intake temperatures effectively.
With the AIRTEC intercooler fitted, the IAT saw a huge drop of 120 degrees, keeping temps much closer to ambient temperature and proving to be more reliable run after run. This gave a huge increase in performance, shown by the dyno test results below.
Test results taken @ AmD Rolling road:
Before AIRTEC intercooler was fitted, the car made 336.1bhp & 350.9 lb/ft of torque
After the intercooler was fitted it made a very impressive 371.8bhp & 352.9 lb/ft

Do we ship abroad ?
Yes we do, to almost anywhere in the world though remember the postage is often high when shipping anything bulky. Most bulky items we export will go by UPS so you can track the package online and could reach America within 48 hours providing its in stock !
However there are a few countries we do not ship to, some of these include: Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Nigeria, Macedonia, Syria, Ukraine, Lebanon.
Why is postage on bulky items to some countries expensive compared to some other companies ?
For both yours and our safety we use well known couriers such as DPD Local and UPS for shipping, then we know exactly where it is in the world at any time and we know its going to arrive safely. Shipping small items can be cheap, but items such as bodykits are expensive to ship - we have a very small margin on the postage fees merely to cover packaging. We can now ship using standard post on some items, however using all methods you may incur import charges when you receive the goods for which we cant be responsible for.
Not everything on our website is in stock, if you need a part desperately please contact us first to confirm availability before placing your order
