    quite how a 1/4 mile time reflects efficient intercooling is beyond me.

    and yes.. lower boost less heat from the compression of that air and remaining in the turbos efficiency island will produce cooler charge temps.

    Sorry if you mis-interpreted but I wasn't saying it was efficient cooling - more an example of someone else running a big turbo on standard SMICs. It was more a question whether a high boost setup needed it as much

    How do the side mounts compare to the RS4 ones?

    Yeah I remember when I took mine out thinking that the design wasn't that bad in all fairness with the scoops etc. I guess their efficiency might not be ideal but there had been a fair amount of R&D gone into it.

    the overall size of them is'nt the main issue I dont think, but presenting the air to and from them is pretty dire..
    their recovery time is quite poor compared to fmic's which as well as being all aluminium construction, also sit with no air obstructions to speak of.. greater exposed surface area to heat exchange to.

    Hi all , right i finish fitting my boost gauge today and my car is running at 20psi , sometimes it goes to 21 but levels out at 19-20 . Is this average boost for stage 2?

    Yeah mines the same mate. Will peak at 22psi but tends to hold around 19-20.

    Am a newbie to the forum, but have come on to learn a bit more about further upgrades to our A4 1.8T Cab.
    FYI We have just had MDM Technique remap to REVO stage 2 from stage 1 following the addition of a Milltek HI Flow cat. Significant improvement to the performance, particularly mid range. However my wife has noticed a fair reduction in mpg on her commute. Still, a few mpg is a small price to pay for the extra oomph (plus it's her fuel )
    Interesting info regarding the heat etc from Tuffty.
    Probably why the garage suggested they haven't wound ours right up yet as am still running the standard SMIC.
    As such am hunting for a thread that can recommend an upgrade. Not FMIC as wish to stay stock looking. But won't divert this one. Will go off and do some digging......
