The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC upgrade is the ultimate cooling solution for your big turbo MK6 build. Rated to be efficient up to 800HP with it's 793 cubic inches, the ARM MK6 Competition FMIC can handle anything you can throw at it.
Unlike OEM-location 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, giving it access to the coolest air available. Because of its front-mount design, it does not require the removal of your radiator assembly, making the installation easier than OEM-location intercooler upgrades for the MK6.
WARNING: The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC is designed for big turbo builds only! We recommend at least a K04 upgrade as the minimum size turbo for this FMIC. The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC can be installed on stock turbo vehicles if you plan to upgrade to a larger turbo in the future, but you will experience more turbo lag than necessary in the interim. If you plan to run the stock K03 turbo on your MK6, we strongly recommend the street version of the ARM MK6 FMIC, which is the perfect size for K03 builds.
The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC positions the intercooler directly behind the lower grille of the GTI's front bumper where it is exposed to the coolest air for the best efficiency. The ARM MK6 Competition 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.
The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC intercooler core is a bar and plate design, and utilized ultra-dense internal and external fin packs for maximum cooling efficiency. The intercooler core itself measures 23.5" x 7.5" x 4.5", for a total intercooler volume of 793 cubic inches. Combining our high-quality core with the increased total volume, and placing it in the optimum location, gives you the ultimate cooling solution for your MK6 build.
The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC comes with upgraded intercooler piping for the hot and cold sides of the FMIC. This piping is comprised of 6-layer reinforced silicone tested to handle up to 60psi. Securing the intercooler piping is our constant-tension T-bolt clamps which will not break or loosen over time.
The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC is mounted to the vehicle using two CNC machined mounting brackets. Each bracket is secured to the MK6 radiator shroud via three different anchoring points. Two hanger mounts and a center screw. Together, these secure the FMIC in place to handle even the most aggressive driving conditions.
The ARM MK6 Competition FMIC kit includes a CNC machined adapter for the MK6 turbo outlet pipe. This will fit the ARM MK6 Turbo Outlet Pipe, or any other TOP that fits the OEM intercooler connection.
Due to the position of the ARM MK6 Competition FMIC, installation is significantly easier than OEM-location intercoolers, as it does not require disassembly of the radiator stack. Installing the ARM Competition FMIC is almost exactly the same as the standard ARM MK6 FMIC kit, with the addition of some trimming to accommodate the larger Competition core. Please use the video install guide, combined with the trimming guide to complete installation of your ARM MK6 Competition FMIC kit.

I’ve not gotten a chance to install this on the car because it’s an ongoing build, I have ordered your stock intercooler delete kit, change pipes kit as well as your downpipe and mid pipe. Everything I’ve gotten from y’all looks to be very high quality and I’m sure I’ll be pleased. I only wish y’all made more stuff for my platform because I would get that stuff too.
This product was a much needed innovation in the mk6 community, a direct fit FMIC. With enough surface area to keep big turbo cars running cool. And enough flow to let the turbo breathe. My 2867r mk6 is breathing very happy thanks to this product.
