    I see what your saying, so the OD of the reducers or joiners will be too big, likely to be over 84mm.

    Ah... yeah... IIRC they hit everything as std as they are higher up than mine on the AH... lower outlets (flush with the bottom of the FMIC) is the way to do it really...

    Yes thats right, like tufty says if they were alloy pipes coming off the FMIC @63mm then fine just enough room to play

    *NEW* SQUARE Intercooler ~ Universal 460mmx300mmx76mm | eBay

    hi guys, would this be any good? i know its narrow but the height is good, and also with the extra spaced saved by the narrow width would be good to get the reducers on before the fog lights?? its very similar dimensions to the forge intercooler, 20mm narrower but 30mm taller and 16mm thicker.

    Ok, I'm shattered after wrestling with that big ass core since 6:30

    Anyway here's a few pics. First up, spot the difference:



    Crash bar off, small core off, horns and middle bar off:



    Lining up the big boy:



    Drivers side pipework:



    Passenger side pipework:



    I didn't have the tools to cut the crash bar tonight so I mocked up a quick fix with some cable ties to hold the core up:



    I tried my absolute hardest to get it to all fit but I could only get half the bumper on. The 90 degree reducers clear the fogs no problem, the issue is (as said above) the outer diameter of the silicone is too big to fit in the resess of the bumper.

    Tomorrow i'll cut the crash bar, remove the fogs, raise the core and get it all to fit. There is a possibility that I can keep the fog trims but not sure yet.

    Anyway this is how I left the old girl:

    So is it going to take some cutting of the bumper then? The fogs have 2 clips dont they, so couldnt you afford to cut/shave the bottom of the grille but still be able to use the top clip for the fog grilles to clip in! That make sense? haha.

    Anyway neil, bloody good job, think im going to have to purchase one of these bad ass boys now.

    There is a tiny possibility that the fogs can stay but the fog grills will need to be trimmed like a bugger or just left off. I'm hoping to have a bit more success tomorrow.

    Could you not pull the intercooler more in at the bottom, towards the car, or would it start fouling the top of the bumper/touch the rad?

    Is it that the silicone sticks out too much? Or its too tall from top to bottom to fit in the recess?

    There's loads of room height wise but even with the core pressed right up against the rad, there is no room.

    Yep spot on. The silicone is fouling the inside of the bumper where it's just too wide. Height wise the silicone will fit, just.

    Yeah it might do if the alloy was welded on. The problem with using a sili joiner then onto a 90 degree alloy is that the hoses then come out wider and foul the fog light brackets. The beauty with the 90 degree sili reducers is that the 90 degree bend is nice and tight.

    If like Bill says you can get 63mm 90 degree alloy welded on I think it will fit.

    Hopefully tonight I'll get it all fitted but I'm expecting to have black sili hoses poking out the fog holes. I cant be bothered with messing about getting welding done.

    What about running a new S3 intercooler such as this one Audi S3 2 ltr T FSi intercooler and hoses New Genuine | eBay ?

    It already has inwardly angled inlets and outlets? This has probably been tried and dismissed but I thought it was worth a punt....

    I'm struggling to find the height and width but so far I have found the following:

    Core Width - S3 - 40mm
    Inlet ID - S3 - 48mm

    Quite a small inlet by all accounts but 270bhp S3's seem to cope with it? It looks like APR do an uprated one with 57mm inlets.

    ...vs my new AH one...


    The ebay one being deeper of course... its possible it could be made to fit like my AH one with a bit of tactical fabrication...

    It was a tight fit on my setup to fit the horns there. I had to bend the bracket a bit.

    If I got FMIC spray or WMI I'll be mounting mine where Dane mounted his, look very good, nice and hidden.

    Bye bye fog lights

    It's still not 100% how I want it but I'm too tired to give a **** right now. My old man is going to make up some brackets for me at work to further adjust the core height. This is how it is now.

    Nice man! Looks pretty mean.

    If you're going to leave the grilles out, I'd raise the core up a tad so that the pipes are at least central in the appature.

    Must be VERY good IATs with that monster core though. I must get myself one!

    Any obvious increase in lag?
