This listing is for a New APR Intercooler System with slight blemishes. Each APR Intercooler System must pass a stringent inspection before being approved for retail, this listing is for a product that may not have passed inspection because of a slight cosmetic blemish, in no way does it affect the performance of the Intercooler System itself. Our Production Team at APR uses a Unique A-D Grading System on each item which will determine the discount amount. This listing earned a "B" grade. Part has minor damage to the fins Tracking # 0105.
"B" Grade = 10% off of the retail price. Minor Damage (small dents, dings, scratches). Multi-ply silicone hoses provide an unrestricted path for airflow entering and exiting the intercooler.
The hoses are engineered to properly connect the intercooler to the factory charge piping system. APRs Easy-Flow Silicone Hose design features stepped mounting surfaces for smooth transitions from one pipe to another.
Traditional designs simply sit on top of each other, often resulting in a disruptive airflow path. By using the stepped design, hoses fit properly without airflow restrictions, resulting in the most ideal path for moving air through the intercooler and into the engine. Several tests were done in order to prove the differences between the stock intercooler and the APR one. One test for thermal effectiveness involved placing the car on the dyno with our normal assortment and arrangement of cooling fans.
The car was then run through a rigorous testing procedure that involved allowing it to idle to a normal operating temperature, and then running it through five power runs. During each run, the engine speed was brought to 2000 rpm for fifteen seconds. This allows the air to run throughout the system and allows the intake air temperature to normalize and negate heat soak from the car sitting at idle.The car was then taken from 2000rpm to 6800rpm at full throttle under load over the next thirty seconds. The car was then allowed to idle for one minute before the next run was started. Each lighter line on the graph above represents each power run, and the darker line represents the average over five runs. The stock intercooler was tested on one day, the APR intercooler was installed, and the testing repeated the next day. The conditions were very similar on both days, but it was slightly hotter (3ºF) on the day the APR intercooler was tested. Most alarming about this entire test was the fact that during the third run with the stock intercooler, the car began to pull boost and timing in order to protect itself from the high intake temperatures. The car also exhibited this protective behavior in both the fourth and fifth runs as well. The APR intercooler performed as we expected, keeping the intake charge temps almost 40ºF lower by the end of the fifth run. Defect Category for this item : Cosmetic (visual appearance issues which do not fall into other categories).
Defect Description : Fins are bent and can't be repaired to the standard. Part checked GOOD for pressure test. APR 1.8T/2.0T Front Mount Intercooler System.
The APR Intercooler System dramatically lowers charge air temperature and resists heat soak far better the factory intercooler system. Through a massively increased core volume, superior intercooler core design and smooth, cast end tanks, APRs engineers were able to create an intercooler capable of supporting power levels well beyond that of the factory unit. Expect increased horsepower and torque and dramatically prolonged performance. Dramatically lowers intake air temperature. Increases horsepower and torque while prolonging performance.
APR intercooler core dimensions: 2.25" x 16.25" x 22. Pressure tested for leak-proof operation.
Smooth cast aluminum end tanks. Barbed hose connection points for a slip-proof fit. Machined mounting points for extra weight savings.
Multi-Ply Silicon Hoses with APR's EZ-Flow stepped design. Direct OEM fitment with no trimming necessary. APR pioneered the OEM-location direct-replacement intercooler system in 2006. Unfortunately, to the untrained eye, many intercooler designs appear the same. However, effectiveness of the system and overall performance are greatly determined by several key metrics.Alloy selection, end tank design, construction type, fin style, fin density and overall core dimensions must be analyzed and balanced accordingly to deliver class-leading performance. While the OEMs goal is to create a lightweight, easy to manufacture and inexpensive to produce, cross-platform design capable of supporting factory power levels. APRs intercooler must be capable of supporting more than double the factory output. Achieving this goal took a multi-step approach focused around intercooler core selection, end tank design and install location. Cycle through the tabs below to learn more!
