The design and performance of the Europe-only Audi S3 front mounted intercooler is hard to beat.
Compared to stock, the S3 FMIC has a more efficient core design and cast end tanks instead of plastic. The core design and end tank material means less pressure drop and better cooling vs the stock unit.
And the price cannot be beat!
Our TSI specific kit includes specially designed hoses that make the S3 FMIC an easy, bolt on upgrade. There is no guesswork with our kit and no hacking of your stock IC hoses is required.
When used with our 2.0T K04 kit, the S3 FMIC gave us a ~10 crank hp gain compared to the stock FMIC.
TSI Owners: Already have a S3 intercooler but don't want to hack your OE intercooler hoses? Our TSI S3 FMIC Hoses make installation a breeze and are now available separately.
