ALPHA Intercooler Upgrade: Porsche 997.1 Turbo

ALPHA Intercooler Upgrade: Porsche 997.1 Turbo

No matter how pure or how fun a high strung naturally aspirated engine may be, there is something about the feeling of a turbocharged car coming onto boost, and hearing the waste gates crack open that puts a huge grin on any enthusiasts face. When it comes to increasing performance, turbocharged cars really start to shine with only minimal upgrades. There is so much potential for improvement on some platforms that 3-4 relatively simple modifications to the turbocharging system you can add 100-200 horsepower. The Porsche 911 Turbo, the 997 in this specific example, is not just a great car to modify but it’s also one that responds VERY well to turbocharging improvements. Although the stock car is very capable, one of the areas where it has the biggest room for gains is in the intercooling department. Being a rear-engine flat six, the packaging restraints of fitting, plumbing, and cooling air via the intercooler is ... read more

Intercooler Discussion – Looks can be Deceiving

Intercooler Discussion – Looks can be Deceiving

In 2006, APR began development of the APR Front Mount Intercooler System for VW’s 2.0T engine. This came after being commissioned by Volkswagen of America to create the ultimate performance hardware for their R-GTI Concept car. A North American Nation Wide Tuner Challenge was held by VW and participation was extended to APR and other tuners in the industry. The results, which were overseen by the SCCA and several automotive magazine editors and journalists, proved APR powered vehicles set the bar by a large margin in all performance categories and the APRprototype intercooler and Stage III turbo system were made available to the public. In recent years, many intercoolers similar in appearance have entered the market. This came shortly after several overseas companies began copying designs and selling them for pennies on the dollar with any ... read more
