This intercooler has been specifically designed for the VW T5.1 fitted with the twin turbo diesel. Using a combination of greater core size and thermal efficiency, we have been able to improve the cooling of the intake charge air, which in turn means more power when compared to the original intercooling, and may lead to greater longevity of engine components, as heat related stress is decreased.
Our own test vehicle consistantly showed that our intercooler reduced the intake air temperature by a further 10°C when compared to the original intercooler, and had a lower resistance resulting in a pressure drop.
This product would normally be recommended for those who have tuned the engine by using performance software or a tuning box type interceptor, but it may also aid fuel economy depending on driving style.
*Please note that the oil cooler as displayed in the product images, which will help reduce temperatures further, must be purchased seperately.
Please Note: In line with our policy to constantly review, revise, and improve our product range, the appearance of the product you receive may differ from the one advertised.
All Forge Motorsport products come with a limited lifetime warranty. All warranty claims must be accompanied by the original proof of purchase to enable us to help you. Failure to supply this proof will result in your claim or enquiry being denied.

Do not use aggressive (acidic) car cleaning products, particularly traffic film remover solutions or shampoos to clean your intercooler, radiator or oil cooler. The use of these products can damage Forge Motorsport cooling systems and invalidate your warranty. These are often found at car washes. A light, warm, soapy solution (free of harsh acidic cleaning compounds) should be used to clean you cooler and thoroughly rinsed away. We recommend that you should inspect your product on a regular basis for bent and/or crushed fins. Any bent fins should be carefully straightened to allow ambient air to pass through the core face. At the time of installing your Forge radiator, an approved coolant must be used and added to the coolant system. Be sure you never mix coolant and always use distilled water.
