      The CTS 2.0T Direct Fit FMIC Kit is designed as a drop in replacement for the OEM front mounted intercooler (FMIC). That means you can install this kit without any trimming or modification of the bumper. The OEM FMIC is adequate for stock boost levels, however once boost levels are increased by way of ECU upgrades/chipping the OEM FMIC struggles to keep the charged air temperatures in check. Higher charged air temperatures can result in boost cut and timing pull, both reducing the amount of power your vehicle produces.

      The CTS direct fit FMIC uses a high efficiency bar and plate intercooler core, which aids in reducing pressure drop. Reducing pressure drop means that your turbo will not have to work as hard to make a given level of boost. If your turbo makes 30psi of boost pressure in the turbocharger, and your intercooler has a 10psi pressure drop then the boost measured by your ECU would be (30psi - 10psi) = 20psi. With an efficient FMIC like the CTS direct fit FMIC your turbo does not have to work as hard to reach desired boost levels. This is beneficial in two ways, the turbo life expectancy is increased due to more efficient operation, and boost leaving the turbocharger is cooler and more dense resulting in more power to the ground.

      Product Details:

      - Efficient bar and plate construction
      - Low pressure drop
      - Maintains factory mounting points
      - No trimming of bumper or crash supports
      - Rated for power levels in excess of 600HP
      - Core dimensions: 23.00 Length x 2.00" Tall x 16.5" Height

      Hi , what HP gain should i expect with this intercooler ?
      My target is to go above 400HP with K04 ...
      Is S3 intercooler OK or is required to go for an aftermarket solution ?
      ( as i see , the price is double ... ) .

      You should expect 10-15HP from our intercooler, and it will definitely work well with your K04 setup, and have more cooling power than an S3 intercooler. If you are interested in a kit feel free to PM or email us directly: sales@ctsturbo.com

      Here we have a few pictures of our new CTS B8 A5 2.0T FMIC kit, which was recently installed by our friends at Monster Garage in Hong Kong. Boasting a high density bar and plate intercooler core (rated for 600HP) the CTS FMIC kit is ideal for modified B8 A5′s with K03, K04 or even big turbo applications. Smooth transitions in our hand crafted intercooler piping ensure quick boost response and optimal flow while the aluminium piping ensures maximum heat dissipation. Fitting an intercooler this size is no easy task, but our design requires absolutely no trimming to the bumper or bumper reinforcement. Interested? Drop us an email: sales@ctsturbo.com or check out our online store: www.ctsturbo.com

      With such large part volumes going out the door there seems to be piles of this shiny stuff all over the shop. We like shiny things.
