Our unique DSG Oil Cooler Kit is an essential fit for any hard-driven MQB 2.0 TSI car running high power levels or in hot climates. It's a complete ready to install package, using a clever sandwich plate design for straightforward and completely reliable installation.Transferring more power and torque through the DSG gearbox generates ever more heat to dissipate. Significantly increased oil temperatures means only one thing: a decrease in the ability for your DSG box to stay properly cooled, eventually causing power drop and gear selection issues.
The RacingLine kit solves this problem: by adding in an additional air/oil cooler positioned right in the airflow at the front of the car, oil temperatures are reduced by around 15 - 20 degrees centigrade (of course dependant on how the car is being used, ambient temps and state of tune). The kit uses a clever design which retains the factory oil/water cooling and adds to it with the thermostatically-controlled front-mounted cooler - doubling up your cooling capability when it's needed with less heat transfer into the water system. Only when the oil exceeds normal temperatures, the thermostat opens. Oil temperature then drops significantly as it is pumped through the densely packed fins of the 10-row cooler’s large surface area mounted right in the cool airflow.
10-row stacked plate design efficiently forces the hot oil through a series of aluminium pressed plates. Heat dissipates as cold air moves across the plates.
Our unique adaptor block oil take-off includes a clever internal thermostatic-control valve to direct oil flow through the cooler only when temperature hits 82°c/180°F.
The kit includes a replacement factory-spec oil/water cooler with a lower height, allowing for easy fitment without affecting the battery tray above it.
Our DSG Cooler design is a unique design: it retains the factory oil/water cooling system, plus adds our oil/air cooling as well. The DSG oil will still quickly warm up from the hot water in the engine's coolant system, reaching full operating temperature as soon as possible.
As you’d expect, the RacingLine DSG Oil Cooler is a beautifully detailed complete kit, developed exclusively for the DQ381 7-speed DSG gearbox.
The system is designed for straightforward fitting and ultimate reliability. Everything needed for perfect fitment is included.
