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.

5 of 5 Front mount was a breeze. July 29, 2019
Reviewer: Victor Perez from Orlando, FL United States  
Shipping was fast and came with a lot . I’m a master technician the only problem I had was with the inlet flanges not fitting and had to grind a bit to get them to lock in properly. The additional silicone hoses and clamps for the pipes took excessive efforts to make work. At the end I love the finish and I can definitely hear the turbo spool now. Love the look and quality aside from the issues.

4 of 5 Works Great. January 28, 2019
Reviewer: Jorell S from Colorado Springs, CO United States  
The Intercooler is good quality along with the hoses. I cant give this 5 stars for 2 reasons: first being that the packaged arrive with screws and nuts tumbling around, and was missing 4 nuts and 2 screws. The second thing which isn't related to the intercooler but the 79 dollar OEM intercooler delete brackets (112 if you buy them separately). The welded on squares for the plastic brackets which you transfer from your old intercooler, were not cut right, so bad I had to file it down and use a rubber mallet to get them on the OEM delete kit brackets. Other than that the intercooler is great, definitely an upgrade that's worth the money, installing was relatively easy, especially with the video ARM provides. Shipping was really quick and response time from ARM was amazing.

Reviewer: Mike G Price from Colorado Springs, CO United States  
The best service from a company I have ever received. Jacob always answers the phones and is full of information and listens and tried to help best he can.  It was packaged perfect. And I am so happy with the product.  I hope to maybe be able to work into a sponsorship with you guys.   I attend a ton of car meets and shows. In the summer and would have no issue. Wrapping the rear quarter panels of my car with your logos.   If you guys wanted.   Plus. Vw gti are showing up lore and more here in the Colorado area.   Cant wait for more things from you guys to add to my car.
