  • Intercooler Core Design: The APR Intercooler core is a large bar-and-plate design featuring densely packed staggered and louvered fins. This design offers exceptional cooling while balancing pressure loss across the core, and maintaining critical airflow to the components behind the intercooler system. The core size was appropriately matched to the platform, minimizing pressure drop while leaving adequate space for appropriately designed end tanks. To APRÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´å©s mechanical engineering experts, the design represented the ultimate in performance, far exceeding the capabilities of the factory intercooler. To the driver, the result is simple: Repeatable performance, even in the most demanding of situations!

  • Back-to-back stress testing on the dyno help to further prove APRÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´å©s intercooler upgradeÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´å©s effectiveness compared to the factory unit. Tests were first conducted with an APR Stage 2 MK7 GTI using the factory intercooler, then the slightly upgraded Golf R intercooler and finally APRÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´å©s Intercooler system. Each dyno pull lasted 12 seconds with 5 seconds of dwell between runs. Raw sensor data was collected using APRÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´å©s ECU Explorer high resolution datalogging system.

The tests quickly proved the long sought after OEM ÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎå«Ì´åupgradedÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´å cooler (factory Golf R intercooler) showed minimal improvement over the standard GTI unit. However, the APR intercooler saw a dramatic difference that made a positive impact on performance.

MK7 GTI 2.0T Intercooler Testing:  The factory GTI and Golf R intercoolers saw a starting IAT of 43 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC and 42 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC which climbed to as high as 71 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC and 66 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC, respectively, by the end of only the first pull. In contrast, the APR intercooler system saw IATÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´å©s drop to 40 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC! The APR system effectively rejected heat soak and by the end of the sixth run saw a final IAT of 49 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC where as both the GTI and Golf R intercoolers struggled to keep up, resulting in a final performance robbing IAT of 84 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC and 82 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC. This translated to a final gain of 21 WHP over the GTI intercooler and 18 WHP over the Golf R Intercooler!

The tests quickly proved the factory Golf R intercooler could not effectively reject heat soak on vehicles equipped with APRÌÎÌ___ÌÎå«ÌÎå´_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´å©s performance software. However, the APR intercooler saw a dramatic difference that made a positive impact on performance.

MK7 Golf R 2.0T Intercooler Testing:  The factory intercoolers saw a starting IAT of 26 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC which climbed to as high as 46 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC by the end of only the first pull.

The APR system effectively rejected heat soak and by the end of the sixth run saw a final IAT of 36 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC where as the factory intercoolers struggled to keep up, resulting in a final performance robbing IAT of 54 ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎå«Ì´åC. This translated to a final gain of 14 WHP over the Golf R intercooler!
