The APR Intercooler System is a OEM-location upgrade that dramatically reduces intake air temperature (IAT), minimizes heat soak, and provides increased performance! The system is a direct bolt-on upgrade that requires no trimming and is recommended at every stage of performance.
Dramatically lowers intake air temp (IAT)
Increases horsepower while minimizing power-robbing heat soak!
Effectiveness tested to over 500 HP!
21 horsepower gain over the factory system!
Massive core size
Use of the OEM-location allows for a massive intercooler core.
24.25" x 16.25" x 1.25" - 492.5 in³ - OEM GTI
24.25" x 16.25" x 1.37" - 529.8 in³ - OEM Golf R
24.00" x 16.25" x 2.25" - 877.5 in³ - APR
Intercooler installed in the best location for this platform
Utilizes factory air dams for exceptional airflow across the core
100% compatible with the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system
