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” – 541.8 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.
Highly effective core design Bar-and-plate core with staggered and louvered fins. Rigorous testing determined core style, fin density, and size. Low pressure drop + highly effective cooling = high performance!
Smooth cast end tanks Engineered for low turbulence/restriction and maximum flow. Organically shaped to promote airflow across entire core. Pressure tested to prevent power robbing boost leaks.
No hidden labor costs or permanent modifications No trimming, cutting, or other costly modification required. No modification to the Adaptive Cruise Control System required. Full directions and APR world-renowned customer support included.
