The ICECAP DSG transmission cooler adapter plate system makes adding an auxiliary heat exchanger as easy as Eskimo pie. That overheat limp mode will never stop you again! (When temperature reaches 138°C/280°F, the Mechatronics initiates a reduction in engine torque. At temperatures above 145°C/293°F, the multi-disc clutches are no longer provided with fluid pressure and the clutches open.)
Your 02E gearbox will remain calm, cool, and collected during track adventures, autobahn escapades, or any other torture test.
The OEM design circulates transmission oil through a heatsink full of HOT engine "coolant".
ICECAP attaches to the original mount holes with no modifications done to the transmission, flows about 1/2 a liter extra oil, and efficiently radiates heat back into the atmosphere. This system doesn't only trap it like the OEM heat sink. It quickly eliminates it.
