Rolling Road Tested to give a 12bhp increase on a Stage 1 car (only a remap installed)

The AIRTEC 1.8 Turbo intercooler kit is reasonably priced but high quality alternative from cheap nasty Ebay kits & more than capable of doing the same if not better job than more expensive intercooler kits, we take a huge amount of pride in making sure their kits are finished to an extremely high standard and we have a real eye for attention for detail.


AIRTEC front mount intercooler kit includes these parts & features


  • 1 x huge 60mm core intercooler with flowed cast end tanks, this means less welding and a stronger Intercooler
  • High quality 4/5ply silicone hoses with no joins (Red, Black and Blue) which means better flow inside the pipe work, finished stainless jubilee clips
  • Stainless horn and ambient temperature support brackets with AIRTEC logos
  • Retains original crash bar (requires minor cutting, detailed in instructions)
  • Retains original fog lights
  • No cutting to bumper
  • Fitting Instructions and all required fixings
  • Requires the rear of the middle grill/bumper area to be trimmed, left and right bumper grilles remain un-cut
  • We strongly recommend anniversary lower bumper valance to be installed to help with intercooler clearance
  • Unbeatable value for money
  • Proven power increases for fast road & track
  • Available in Satin Black or Natural Silver
  • AIRTEC 3 year unlimited mileage warranty
  • Fitting will take 2-4 hours depending on mechanical skill
  • Fits all S3 8L 1.8T

Stage 1 remap (higher stages of tune will see even bigger gains)


  • Standard – Temps Into Intercooler 128 degrees & Out of Intercooler 49 degrees, 12bhp gain in mid-range and standard Intercooler kept losing power
  • AIRTEC Intercooler – Temps Into Intercooler 126 degrees & out of Intercooler 23 degrees.

Please note, above test results taken from Seat Cupra R rolling road test, using the same intercooler kit, which means you will get the same great results!
