• Increased Cooling Efficiency
• Reliable Performance
The ARM Motorsports MK6 GLI FMIC Kit increases power and torque on your 2.0T by decreasing intake air temperatures and increasing intake air density. The temperature of the compressed air leaving the turbocharger is high due to it being propelled by the hot exhaust gases from the GLI’s 2.0 T engine. Hotter air contains less oxygen than cooler air occupying the same amount of space. The more oxygen delivered inside the engine cylinder the more potential power is available from the engine.
This design positions the intercooler directly in the opening of the GLI 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. The OEM intercooler can be left in place disconnected, or completely removed with our OEM Intercooler Delete Kit. Removing of the OEM intercooler allows for increased airflow through the radiator bundle, allowing for improved cooling for your coolant, oil and transmission fluid.
On the dyno this front mount intercooler setup will generate as much as 30whp and 40wtq (See Complete Dyno Details Here).
Generally the larger an intercooler is the better it is at lowering the temperature of the charged air from the turbo before it reached the throttle body. However, if an intercooler is too large, it can cause an adverse pressure drop, increasing turbo lag. Because the ARM Intercooler is located in front of the other radiators on the car it can cool the charged air more effectively than larger intercoolers in the OEM location. Which is why the ARM Motorsports FMIC core size of 23.5″ x 6.5″ x 3″ is the perfect balance for maximizing cooling efficiency while minimizing pressure drop.
The ARM Motorsports MK6 GTI Front Mount Intercooler Kit is fully reversible, making it a true bolt on unit. For complete step by step installation instructions, check out the install video.
