Mishimoto Intercooler MQB
Everyone loves a good underdog story. There’s just something uplifting about the little guy persevering. If you know anyone who’s a Philly sports fan, you’re probably never going to hear the end of the most recent underdog story (S’go Birds). The Eagle’s run might have cemented them into underdog history, but that’s in the past now. The big game for Mishimoto is heating up with the MQB Performance intercooler, and we feel like the hungry dogs on the block now.
With our intercooler replacing the stock unit, we saw max gains of 14.2 whp and 12.2 wtq on the stock tuning, with an extra unit of torque when running on the full kit.
This jump in power isn’t just the result of dumb luck but rather the combination of innovative improvements we made over the stock unit. These tweaks consisted of clever diverters incorporated into our end tank casts that allowed for the efficient use of our entire bar-and-plate core, which resulted in a 23°F temperature drop over the stock core at the outlet. We expected an even more dramatic gap between inlet and outlet temperatures.
