Product Description & Reviews
ARM Motorsports presents its MK6 GTI Front Mount Intercooler. Unlike OEM style intercoolers, this is a true front mount design placed first in line of the airflow in front of the radiators. This design positions the intercooler directly in the openings in the GTI"s front bumper where it is exposed to the coolest air for the biggest gains in horsepower. This is not a twincooler type of setup, rather this FMIC does away with the OEM intercooler entirely. See details on removing the GTI's OEM intercooler for weight savings and increased cooling efficiency. On the dyno this front mount intercooler setup will generate as much as 25whp and 23wtq. The temperature of the compressed air leaving the turbocharger is high due to being propelled by the hot exhaust gases from the GTI's two lilter engine. Hotter air contains less oxygen than cooler air occupying the same amount of space and the more oxygen delivered inside the engine cylinder the more potential power is available from the engine. Enter the intercooler, a component designed to take the hot air from the turbo and cool it before returning it to the engine. The larger an intercooler is the better chance it has at lowering the temperature of the charged air from the turbo. However, if the intercooler is too large than it can cause an undesirable pressure drop. Which is why the ARM Motorsports FMIC core size of 23.5" x 6.5" x 3" was selected to maximize cooling efficiency while minimizing any pressure drop. This MK6 GTI front mount intercooler kit is fully reversible, making it a true bolt on unit as there is no cutting or trimming required for correct fitment.
