ARM Motorsports presents the MK6 GTI Front Mount Intercooler. Unlike OEM style intercoolers, this is a true front mount design where the intercooler is placed first in line of airflow at the front of the radiator stack equipped on the
2.0T engine.

This design positions the intercooler directly in the openings of the GTI"s 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 better airflow through the radiator bundle and also reduces some weight.

On the dyno this front mount intercooler setup will generate as much as 30whp and 40wtq (See Complete Dyno Details Here).


The temperature of the compressed air leaving the turbocharger is high due to it being propelled by the hot exhaust gases from the GTI's two lilter 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. Enter the ARM FMIC intercooler, a component designed to take the hot air from the turbo and cool it before returning it to the engine by putting it in the most optimal position.

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 than 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.

Great buy December 19, 2016
Reviewer: Anthony Flick from Marion , OH United States  
Great product for the money. The quality is on par, find density is good and the fitment was spot on. Not to sure of the gains yet but will find out in the spring. Shipping was quick and customer service was great!

Exceeded expectations. November 10, 2016
Reviewer: Joseph Pasternak from Ligonier, PA United States  
Just installed the fmic on my 2012 gti. The intercooler arrived 2 days ahead of estimated delivery time. The intercooler was double packed and everything was in perfect condition. The install was rather easy and everything fit perfectly. The only thing I wish it would have came with was install instructions. Other than that I'm super happy with the product and service I received from arm motorsports. I will be a returning customer for sure.

Very Good Kit September 9, 2016
Reviewer: Luke Brunson from Phoenix, AZ  
Kit came super fast and packaged very well and came with some extra goodies, got a microfiber polishing towel and decal stickers.  The kit itself is as good of quality as you're going to get and had perfect fitment.  It looks awesome and definitely pulls harder up top.  The only downside is there were no instructions which would have been helpful, otherwise 5 stars!

Just About Perfect August 15, 2016
Reviewer: Aaron from Miami, FL  
Been insanely hot out and the car is running stronger than ever!  Just had to modify one of the clamps to get it to fit.  Only took a couple minutes.  Totally worth every penny!
