Mk5/6 street cars with factory radiators are very well served... on the street. Hit the race track, however, and the low thermal capacity becomes a hindrence. After a hot lap or three under heavy boost, the temperatures climb scarily. The only fix has been to come in to cool down and reduce that boil to a simmer. All this is exascerbated by addition of a thicker FMIC which cuts air flow to and through the radiator. What can be done about it?
Installation of the Tyrolsport Mk5/6 TSI/FSI Upgraded Radiator solves the problem which collected data demonstrates conclusively.
With a 25% increase in fluid volume, this all aluminum piece is guaranteed to reduce excessively high water temperatures caused by larger aftermarket intercoolers. A full 20-25% decrease in radiator outlet temperatures can be expected. No modifications are required to clear the largest aftermarket intercooler designs. Precision fit leak-free hose ends are provided for OEM reliability and function. Installation is thusly straight forward with no surprises. This radiator can also be ordered with -16 AN male connections on end tanks.
This solution is 100% designed and manufactured in the USA. Continuous track and street testing makes it a true no-brainer for the hardcore go fast driver/builder.
