The ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger

The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger was developed to reduce high air intake temperatures found in supercharged engines. Designed and conceptualized in house at AWE Tuning, the AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger should be a mandate for supercharged 3.0T engines looking to keep things consistent and reliable.

The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger is a direct replacement for the factory heat exchanger, fitting neatly behind the front bumper and grill assemblies. This product was specifically designed by the engineers at AWE Tuning to include a unique drain plug and bleed screw, allowing the system to be bled without the need for external tools. In other words, all the benefits of a cooling upgrade with none of the fitment downsides.

Why a heat exchanger?

Insufficiently cooled air entering your vehicle’s engine will rob power and performance. Modified vehicles, notably those flashed and/or equipped with a modified supercharger pulley like the AWE Tuning Stage 2 Performance Pulley, are particularly susceptible to higher intake air temperatures. Enter the AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger: Proven to maintain consistent intake air temperatures and power, even under the most demanding of conditions.

How it works

The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger utilizes a larger frontal area, resulting in cooler supercharger coolant temperatures, leading to better air intake temperatures and consistent, reliable power.
