The factory intercooler on the Polo GTI AW has proved to be unable to cope with the demands of higher power, hard driven cars, showing up as serious power losses during hard driving as air temperatures soar.
Our massive 'plate & bar' Intercooler System uses a stepped core to give a 56% volume increase over the factory cooler - making it the best performing intercooler upgrade on offer for the MQB-A0 platform Polo GTI AW.
By consistently reducing intake air temperatures (IAT), heat soak is minimised delivering increased performance again and again. No need for the recovery cool-down times needed for the production intercooler.
Our development focussed on finding the ‘sweet spot’ of maximum IAT cooling versus minimum pressure loss. This has allowed us to achieve increased size without increased lag.
Fitment is specific for the Polo GTI AW - meaning no cutting, drilling or modifications to the crashrequired to fit.
MAXIMUM CORE SIZE
The massive 'plate & bar' intercooler unit features a high-speed stepped core using extra tall internal tubes for maximum boost flow and a 25% increase in frontal area.
Highly effective aluminium plate & bar construction, developed following rigorous testing to optimise core dimensions, fin density, and pipe flow providing a 56% volume increase.
SMOOTH END TANKS
Cast construction end tanks for minimal turbulence and restriction delivering maximum flow across the entire core depth, with 60mm inlet & outlet.

PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE.
OEM-fitment, requiring no drilling or cutting for perfect fitment.
Giant core volume of 10,039,737mm³ vs 6,440,000mm³ for the OEM core.
Don't confuse our 'Plate & Bar' construction with the cheaper and less-effective 'Tube & Fin' construction that most aftermarket intercoolers use.
Intercooler outlets are 60mm - meaning stock boost pipes or our upgraded boost pipes can be used.
It's all about air intake temperatures.
The OEM factory intercooler on the Polo GTI 2.0 TSI struggles with containing the all-important air intake temperatures once power is upgraded.
So, intake air temperatures begin to rise rapidly, heat soak occurs, resulting in significant power losses the harder the car is used. The only way to recover the performance of the standard intercooler is to park the car for an hour.
The RacingLine Intercooler makes a great difference in controlling IAT temperatures, meaning that your power increases keep on delivering, run after run.
