Intercooler installation - THE topic. You have decided on an intercooler? Your vehicle will thank you for it! After all, it can now look forward to efficiently cooled charge air and optimized combustion performance. The intercooler has been ordered, all necessary accessories are available? In general, we at WAGNER TUNING recommend that the installation be carried out by a specialist workshop. Often not only the intercooler itself is replaced, but also various other components. The specialist workshop is familiar with the installation of intercoolers and also has the necessary tools. The specialist will also check whether the selected intercooler actually matches your vehicle. Then you are definitely on the safe side.
If you have decided to have the intercooler installed, it is advisable to consider as soon as possible whether the intercooler needs to be registered. Larger intercoolers lead to a much more efficient combustion in the engine, as the cooled air has a smaller volume - which in turn means that for the same volume more oxygen is available for combustion. After installation of the intercooler, therefore, performance and exhaust gas values will have changed, which means that the previous type approval may no longer be valid. To avoid unpleasant surprises after installation of the intercooler, it is always advisable to obtain information about the registration in advance.
