    here's some info on the I/C's avail no figures but having owned an ED30 and fitted the S3 I/C its def worthwhile and I have bought another to go on my 8P. The orig poster on that post had one fitted and he had lower temps but I cant find his post about them.

    found it, this was a MKII Leon Cupra
    As a guideline, on mine, with stock code and no other mods, we saw inlet temps decrease from 30oC to 17oC with outside ambient temp of 13.5oC.

    On a mapped car, we saw 20-25% drop in inlet temp with the S3 intercooler.

    Thanks for the info manor13. My main worry is the boost pressure difference between a 2.0 TFSI and a 2.0 TDI. When people start running 25+ PSI on their TFSI Is the S3 cooler still up to the job?

    i doubt it as that more then a stg 2+ i would assume on a k04 westy.. it think the Airflo and THS FMIC are good and i think Alex has also posted another one just forgot the name but its on his thread.

    As you can see from my pics above there is a fair bit of oil in the boost hoses which will be sapping my power. Also the boost hoses are really soft so it all needs replacing. I'm sure with a clean FMIC and a catch can ill get most of my performance back.

    Can anyone tell me if the 50mm Allan key bolts pictured above from the EGR delete are a standard Audi bolt?

    1 has dropped out which may explain some of my poor performance.

    Interesting. Been through his feedback to see if anyone has commented on this cooler but can't find anything. Looks the part but I'd prefer to hear experiences of it.

    Do you know what, I was thinking this on my way into work this morning! I bet it was run as a twintercooler and that's why there was so much lag. It would also explain the small core

    I'd love to have a big cooler just behind the bumper by itself as that'll offer the best performance and cooling but If an S3 cooler upgrade keeps the temps down on a hybrid It definitely looks the easiest option, if a little expensive.
