AWE Tuning Audi 3.0T Heat Exchanger Upgrade
The lower the intake air temperature the more power you keep – especially on a hot humid day in Chicago. The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger was designed to reduce the potential for high air intake temperatures found in Audi’s supercharged engines. This is a direct replacement for the factory heat exchanger and fits behind the front bumper and grill assemblies.
AWE Tuning 3.0T ColdFront Heat Exchanger Features:
- Awesome solution for reducing intake air temperature
- 100% increase in coolant flow rate
- Lowers intake air temperatures by up to 15F
- Reduces coolant temperatures by up to 24F
- Maintains consistent power in extreme conditions
- Perfect Fitment – Guaranteed
Why the need for a heat exchanger?
Hot, dense air entering your engine will reduce power and performance. Modified vehicles, notably those equipped with a modified supercharger pulley, like the AWE Tuning Stage 2 Performance Pulley, are particularly susceptible to higher intake air temperatures. Think of hot humid days in chicago. The AWE Tuning ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger id proven to maintain consistently cooler intake air temperatures and therefore power, even under the most demanding of conditions.
How it works
The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger utilizes an increased front area and allows for more air flow therby resulting in cooler supercharger temperatures. This leads to cooler air intake temperatures and consistent, reliable power.
The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Reservoir is an aluminum tank that is plumbed directly into the heat exchanger coolant system to increase supercharger coolant capacity. The increase in coolant capacity allows increased heat exchange and lower coolant temperatures which in turn result in lower air intake temperatures. To further reduce coolant temperatures, the AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Reservoir incorporates a flow design which reduces coolant temperature as it flows through the unit.
ColdFront™ Coolant Pump
The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Coolant Pump replaces the stock heat exchanger pump and out-performs it by an impressive 100% gain in flow-rate. During excessive dynamometer testing the AWE 3.0T recorded an additional 8% decrease in intake air temperatures when the pump was combined with the ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger and ColdFront™ Reservoir.
ColdFront™ Protection Screen
The screen is the solution for guarding the Heat Exchanger from road debris. The Protection Screen guards the full face of the Heat Exchanger with stainless wire mesh and is surrounded by a stainless steel frame. Thism protectsthe heat exchanger from any small objects that may find their way past the vehicle’s grill and keeps the heat exchanger fins free of damage, allowing them to perform with maximum efficiency.
ColdFront™ Drive Select Cooler (for B8 S4s with Audi Drive Select)
For 2010-2012 B8 S4s with Audi Drive Select the factory Audi Drive Select Cooler snakes through the area where the Heat Exchanger lives. The AWE ColdFront™ Audi Drive Select Cooler places the new cooler in a safe new location beneath the crash bar.
