The Audi S1 packs the large 2.0 TSI engine from the Golf GTI into a small chassis, so some things are bound to be compromised, and unfortunately Audi decided to make do with in intercooler that’s around a quarter the size of the one found on the Golf ! On a remapped car this easily pushed intake temperatures up above 80 degrees C.
The space available to go with a larger core is very limited, but using a unique stepped core (we were the first aftermarket intercooler manufacturer to make a stepped core way back in 2006) and our own bespoke cast end tanks, we have been able to deliver an intercooler that performs excellently over and above stock. We recorded a 30+ degrees C drop in inlet temperature, giving a boost in power of 10bhp with no other modifications. On a cool day the increase would be even greater.
This intercooler comes in our unique stealth black finish giving an OEM appearance.

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.
