Our much-anticipated Oil Cooler Kit is an essential fit for any hard-driven MQB 2.0 TSI car running high power levels or in hot climates.
WHY FIT AN OIL COOLER KIT?
It’s a complete ready to install package, using a clever sandwich plate design for straightforward and reliable installation.
Adding power to these TSI engines generates more heat to disperse. Significantly increased oil temperatures means only one thing: a decrease in the ability for your engine to stay properly lubricated. At the same time, it’s really important not to over-cool the oil; our 10-row kit is perfect.
Under hard driving, the stock oil cooler is easily overwhelmed. Failures start to occur when oil cannot dissipate its collected heat fast enough and the oil begins to thin and degrade – losing its lubrication properties.
The RacingLine kit solves this problem: by adding in an additional air to oil cooler positioned right in the airflow in the front of the car, oil temperatures are reduced by around 15 – 20 degrees centigrade (of course dependant on how the car is being used, ambient temps and state of tune).
Our kit retains the factory oil to water cooler and adds to it with the front-mounted cooler – doubling up your cooling capability with less heat transfer into the water system.
As the oil moves away from the heat inside the engine, its temperature drops significantly as it is pumped through the densely packed fins of the 10-row cooler’s large surface area mounted right in the cool airflow.
Supplied as a complete kit with every part ready for install.
OIL COOLER FITMENT.
As you’d expect, the RacingLine Oil Cooler is a beautifully detailed complete kit, developed exclusively for the EA888.3 engine.
The system is designed for straightforward fitting and ultimate reliability. Everything needed for perfect fitment is included.
Unlike some oil cooler kits, with the RacingLine Performance kit there is no need to remove the intake manifold to access oil galleries for a feed in and out of the engine.
Our clever oil filter adapter enables the oil cooler sandwich plate to be installed underneath the current oil filter housing on all EA888.3 engines – just screw off and replace.
This sandwich plate includes an integral pressure relief valving system to protect the system from pressure spikes.
10 row stacked-plate oil cooler radiator, flowed to obtain maximum heat dissipation without undue pressure drop.
Optimum front mounted location behind front lower grill aperture with all necessary brackets and fixing kit supplied.
210 Series stainless steel, nylon braided feed and return lines run past the chassis leg into the bumper cavity, then connecting to the oil cooler core.
