As a proud distributor of ABD Racing products, TKO Motorwerks is happy to be able to extend additional savings on quality merchandise exclusively to VWVortex members. TKO Motorwerks is currently hosting a group buy on the ABD Racing Lower Intercooler Tube for the Mk4 and New Beetle 1.8T applications.
ABD Racing’s Lower Intercooler Tube for the 1.8T motor is a direct replacement for the factory “pancake” pipe located in the passenger-side fender well. The factory pipe is restrictive due to its non-uniform shape. The new ABD Racing part is a larger diameter mandrel bent tube so it stays the same diameter from start to finish. This part is 57mm so airflow to the Intercooler is much improved and noticeable gains in throttle response are felt with the use of this part. With the new, improved design as of ’05, the part is now constructed completely out of aluminum for better flow. The ABD Racing lower intercooler tube installs in minutes as all attachment points are in the original location. Ceramic coated brilliant silver to keep intake temperatures cooler.
Horse-power gains with this piece are minimal (2-4hp at best) but the throttle response is increased and is definitely noticed after install. More importantly, the air-flow to the intercooler is increased significantly improving the efficiency of your stock intercooler.
With commitments from 20 1.8T owners, TKO Motorwerks is offering the ABD Racing Lower Intercooler Tube for a price of $100 including shipping within the continental US. Click on the link below to be directed to the group buy hosted in the Mk4 1.8T group buy forum.
