ARM Motorsport has just released their new front mount intercooler for the Volkswagen MK7 platform! If you've been looking for a compact front mount intercooler that packs a punch when it comes to performance, the new ARM intercooler is perfect for you! This intercooler gives your GTI up to 24whp and 26wtq by reducing intake air temperatures by 74%, making it one of the best upgrades you can do for your MK7 GTI. The ARM MK7 FMIC is so efficient that it outperforms stock-location intercoolers that are almost twice it's size!
With this new intercooler, ARM has proven that when it comes to intercoolers, bigger isn't always better. The main purpose of an upgraded intercooler is to help keep intake air temperatures cool. The bigger an intercooler is, the more charge-air is required to fill it up, and therefore more of a potential for pressure drop, power loss and dreaded turbo lag. In an ideal world, the best solution would be to not need an intercooler at all and have cool charge-air run straight from the turbo to the intake manifold. However, the charge-air coming from the turbo isn't cool, and too much heat will decrease power on your MK7. The AMR intercooler strikes the perfect balance between keeping your intake air cool, and cutting down on unnecessary size and turbo lag.
