AWE Tuning Performance Intercoolers (997 Turbo)
Designed to fit:
- 2007 - 2012 Porsche 911 Turbo
During development of AWE Tuning's high horsepower turbos kits for the 997TT, we experienced excessively high intake air temperatures. Upon close examination of the stock intercoolers, we found they matched the same specs as the 996TT X50/GT2 design, which is suitable to 600hp, but not much beyond that.
AWE Tuning designed a cast end tank utilizing sophisticated CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software to ensure proper flow distribution through the end tanks and intercooler. Tested extensively on the dyno, street and track, these intercoolers will perform flawlessly no matter the environment.
Compared to stock, their cores are 37% larger (422 cubic inches vs 308 cubic inches). In contrast to the stock cores, ours are a high flow bar and plate style and are built to our charge row and fin count specs. These specifications resulted in improved intake temperatures by a massive 55F and improved drop pressure resistance through the core by 1 psi. Considering that extremely little trimming is involved to fit such effective units to the car, this is a huge engineering feat.
In addition to the superior core and end tank design, their kit also features 6-ply silicone hoses with gentle curves to prevent bursting under pressure. Further, our hoses use a Nomex braiding for superior strength, instead of more common polyester. The very best materials and industry leading engineering separate this kit from all others on the market. To ensure OE reliability, we use CNC Machined factory style aluminum connections to mate our hoses to the factory Y-pipe.
Whether you are simply running enhanced software, or are planning on a larger turbo upgrade for your car, our intercoolers solve all heat related issues that come with more turbo boost. Keeping your intake air temperatures low results in more power, better engine output stability when outside temps climb, and the safety margin needed when pushing the limit.

About AWE Tuning
AWE Tuning has one vision: To Unlock Performance. From award winning handcrafted performance exhausts to track-tested carbon fiber intakes and performance intercoolers, AWE Tuning innovates, designs, retails and distributes AWE Tuning brand performance products globally through its preferred network of dealers, online and from its state-of-the-art headquarters outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Since 1991, AWE Tuning's elite team of researchers, engineers, innovators and drivers have track-tested and introduced premium performance upgrades for some of the finest automobiles in the world.
The in-house advantage
A recent carbon fiber intake had over 350 in-house hours of development and testing behind it. Needless to say, their people are fanatically committed to the business of performance. By controlling every facet of development we are able to guarantee effectiveness and quality like no other.
AWE's laboratory is as much CAD tools as it is CNC machine as it is official-tuner-status at New Jersey Motorsports Park. It’s all part of their DNA, from prototyping to manufacturing to testing. The bottom line, in house means in control – and that’s where you want to be.
