Product description

Your DSG transmission is equipped with a filter inside a fragile plastic housing. Unfortunately the plastic filter housing becomes brittle over time and often cracks during filter changes which are performed every 40,000 miles. Constructed of billet aluminum, the USP Cool Flow housing is far stronger than the factory plastic housing. Not only is the Cool Flow housing stronger, but it also incorporates cooling fins to cool the DSG fluid as it passes through the filter and housing. Installation is straight forward and requires no special tools. This is a must have for every DSG owner.

Features:
- CNC'd Billet Aluminum
- Hard anodized clear for longevity
- Uses OEM filter and o-ring
- Limited Lifetime warranty 
 
 
Fits all Audi, VW, SEAT, SKODA models with DSG Transmissions with factory part # 02E305045. 
 
*** Does not Fit Manual Cars

Finally .. had my DSG Cool Flow Aluminum Filter Housing installed by dealer while in for first 40k DSG service .. VW tech was amazed at quality of the product and appreciated that I was replacing the plastic factory one .. a definitely useful and worthwhile upgrade for your DSG transmission.

Advantages: Aluminum, looks better, lasts a whole lot longer than plastic, keeps its shape under extreme conditions, and the fins help in cooling the 'exposed' fluid much more effectively .. as engineered, other than "the risky design of passing a heat exchanger through the coolant radiator ... The DSG has no oil pump, oil cooler, hydraulic controls, or torque converter ... DSG alert levels require not only sensor precision throughout the temperature range but for the rated life of the transmission itself. That overall requirement is better served by a virtual sensor ... In fact, there is no transmission temperature sensor, not even in the fluid, as the DSG gear pack contains no clutches and bands ... ," the filter housing is the only other 'cooling mechanism' to cool down the DSG fluid! .. oh yeah, limited Lifetime warranty to boot.

Disadvantages: For me .. having to wait until 1st DSG service!

Nice part. Could use some refining on the o-ring land.I dont like how the o-ring is exposed to the threads.hopefully it wont be a problem.

Complete improvement over original plastic cover.

Advantages: Fins for cooling, aluminium won't crack like the plastic one.

Disadvantages: Doesn't come stock on the motor. For shame AVW, for shame!

Much better in my opinion than a plastic cap. Won't become weaker or brittle due to the heat cycling of the fluid. It also will act as an additional cooling point for the DSG's fluid.

Great looking unit which adds an extra degree of heatsink for the DSG. Its being used in conjunction with a deeper DSG cooler and so far it looks to be helping with oil heat reduction.

Advantages: Looks good, solid design, dissipates heat

Disadvantages: None so far!
