AMS PERFORMANCE UK are proud to introduce the front mount intercooler upgrade for the Audi RS3 (8P)

Designed to fit all models, this free-flowing intercooler is a direct replacement for the smaller and more restrictive OEM set up.

Featuring a huge 120mm 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 and can be used with the original hoses.

As with all AIRTEC products, the intercooler was tested back-to-back on the dyno against the OEM item. This showed a huge reduction in air charge temperatures over standard, as seen below:
