The APR Intercooler System is a OEM-location upgrade that dramatically reduces intake air temperature (IAT), minimizes heat soak, and provides increased performance! The system is a direct bolt-on upgrade that requires no trimming and is recommended at every stage of performance.
- Dramatically lowers intake air temp (IAT)
- Increases horsepower while minimizing power-robbing heat soak!
- Effectiveness tested to over 500 HP!
- 21 horsepower gain over the factory system!
- Massive core size
- Use of the OEM-location allows for a massive intercooler core.
