      Lately at CTS we've been getting a lot of from TT owners looking for FMIC Kits and big turbo kits. So why not just develop a TT180Q FMIC kit based off or our successful MK4 and TT225Q kits? Well we did it, and now we've got full TT180 FMIC kits that fit both the FWD and Quattro models. Our new kit utilizes all stainless steel charge piping fabricated in house, 4 ply silicon couplers and stainless steel T bolt clamps? TT guys, you asked for it, now you got it!!!!




      If you have any questions feel free to contact us here via PM or via email: sales@ctsturbo.com

      Thanks!

      We actually did have some dyno data, but that was about 5 years ago when we did the Golf 4 FMIC kit which is about exactly the same as this one aside from a revised pipe that goes from FMIC to throttle body.

      ...do you still have that data? Don't get me wrong - I love that you guys are giving me a more affordable option than APR/Forge - I'd just like to make an informed decision here.

      Unfortunately I don't have it, the basics of this kit was done 5+ years ago, it's well known and proven. If you want a small overpriced intercooler then you're looking in the wrong spot. This kit is also compatible with the big turbo kits we do for the 180TT. We're actually building one right now for a customer back east.

      Most aftermarket will have very similar pressure drop, and on a turbo car it isn't as crucial as a supercharged car where that extra psi will be hard to get. On a 1.8t the computer will compensate anyways.

      What you should look for in general is:

      bar and plate or tube and fins (even that is debatable)
      end tank designs
      flow (wich you'll have a hard time finding info on)
      fitment / size (some will argue that an intercooler can be to big, wich is rigth in theory, but in the real world you want the biggest that fits without too much drawbacks within the space you have)
      Proper piping, good materials/durability and price

      Well some years ago we actually sent one to one of the vortex admins. This particular admin ditched his forge for ours as he needed something larger for racing, he was supposed to do a write up. However, he didn't follow through.

      I'd love to help you guys out, but I'll be completely honest. We just don't have time to gather data for the ~ 10 year old cars when the coolers are the same basic design, same engine that we've been doing for close to 10 years now. We use the same basic kit on the Golf 1.8T, GTI, Jetta, TT180, TT225 etc.

      Sounds like what I've been looking for. Could you post a link to the bt TT180Q kits? Can I run the IC on a stock setup in the meanwhile then swap fitment for the mentioned bt kit?

      Low compression R32 ready for boost...

      Johnny’s R32 is really coming together with our CTS turbo low compression 8.5:1 head spacer, fresh timing chains and Raceware head studs.

      From left to right you’ll see Siemens 630cc, Bosch Green Giants, Bosch EV14 550cc, Injector Dynamics 725cc, 850cc, 1000cc, Bosch 36lb’s. We’ve got more, but it’s hard to fit them all in one picture. If you’re looking for fuel injectors then you’re in the right spot.

      The DV goes in the factory location, just like the MK4 1.8T FMIC kit, I don't see why your setup wouldn't work.

      both the ic core and the tubing is beefy( 3in) , i would venture to say this is the biggest you could go and retain a stock bumper

      Thanks for your interest, the charge piping is 2.5" which is well suited to guys doing turbo upgrades or who just want some reduced complexity to their intercooler kit and colder intake temps.



      I have seen people install these with engine covers, the piping is basically the same as this, so you may have to trim part of the drivers side slightly if you want to keep your engine cover:

      ok. it's "possible" but not guaranteed. just like the aliens, it's "100% possible," but it's really up to who installs it.

      Correct, if you're not experienced then you could cut the engine cover in half instead of trimming an edge, then you'd be sadly out of luck. We have done it many times, the TT180 is basically the same under the hood as a MK4 1.8T. The aliens can be left in tact.

      Also, this kit is compatible with our TT180Q and non Q turbo kits.

      just finishing up the install , it fits very nice !! we only ran into one issue and with the TIP i have from frankenturbo , the first charge pipe needs a spacer ( wich works out cause now i dont have to modify and other the nice 304 SS piping ) all we are gonna do is make a 4 inch section of pipe with a diverter bung and a signal nipple for the WG!
