    VW MK4 golf FMIC???

    Does any body know if a MK4 golf gti front mounted intercooler will fit my a3 1.8t? slightly warey as i dont want to go and spunk money on it and it doesnt fit (im buying it off a mate, just havent had a chance to look) even if its slight modifacations im not bothered, just as long as the pipes line up lol.
    cheers,
    Robbo

    what do you mean slight modifications and as long as the pipes line up???
    well the modifications will have to be on the pipes as i suppose...so yes it will fit and yes it will need some modifications to the piping

    what brand is it? is it a custom made one?

    it depends entirely which FMIC kit it is on the golf.....

    If it's the ebay turbo revs kit then it'll fit just fine.

    If it's a forge or THS kit, then they run twin pass cores, with the top pipe running inside the crash bar on the golf.

    Unlike the A3, the golf has a C section steel crash bar, which allows you to run the pipe inside it using a twin pass core. you can't do this on the A3.

    theres a thread at the top of the page, need some more A3's on the stand mate so if you wana get ya car on the stand, get over to the events part of the forum and stick ya name down (5 for a car including all passengers)

    Heres my build which includes a golf intercooler off the bay...bit more subtle than the turborevs kit
