Golf R Intercoolers & Cooling Solutions

We are proud to introduce our range of Golf R intercoolers to the Mk7 VW Golf R tuning market!

A key component of any remapped vehicle is the intercooler upgrade as it's vitally important to keep charge temperatures low whilst the power increases. For any Golf R owner wanting to take their vehicle to stage 2 and beyond, then a performance intercooler is simply a must-have piece of hardware. You will find an aftermarket intercooler in each of our VUDU Performance Stage 2 and Stage 3 Tuning Packages.

Each performance intercooler within this product collection will provide a direct fit replacement for the stock unit on your Mk7 or Mk7.5 Golf R.

Why Upgrade The Intercooler On The VW Golf R Mk7?

You will probably find yourself searching for an aftermarket intercooler when upgrading from a stage 1 to a stage 2 build. An increase of 40bhp is due to be expected when Golf R owners upgrade from a Stage 1 to a Stage 2 VUDU Performance Remap Package, so cooling hardware components such as the intercooler are a necessity for running this incredible amount of power.

The Golf R Front Mount Intercooler provides a huge reduction in air charge temperatures to bring heat levels closer to the ambient temperature that is required for the car to run smoothly.

Which Is The Best Intercooler For The Mk7 Golf R?

As this is such a specialist component of stage 2 tuning, there are a number of options when it comes to selecting which intercooler you are wanting to add to your Golf R build.

Our personal favourite and the intercooler included in our stage 2 Golf R package is the AIRTEC Motorsport Gen 2 Intercooler Upgrade. We have tested this intercooler rigorously and the dyno testing results speak for themselves, with reliable run-after-run results. You can expect a rather impressive 400-420BHP with our full stage 2 kit installed.
