    great information and apologies for any problems in this not fitting straight onto your car , we were lead to believe by ETKA that this would fit .
    Now if there are any UK guys with a facelift S3 2009 we would be happy to see you at Forge to look at the changes we need to make to a nice simple install , the happy helper would leave with the Forge twintercooler on his car at an unbeleivable price , we would need the car for 1 week
    please let me know if you are interested
    PM sent!

    Like everything fitted. Just like you would drive everyday on the streets. I wanna see how stealthy/flashy with the FMIC fitted on these Facelift A3's. If that's not too much to ask. Thanks in advance.

    Many thanks for the write up S.

    It is at the the top where I would have expected you to make most gains as this is when the air starts heating up with the OEM intercooler so what you write makes good sense.

    If you could sort the last picture out that would be great so we can see what it looks like as a finished product.

    Could take some logs of block 004 with VCDS from 2000rpm to the redline in for example 3rd gear that would be great. This will show intake air temperatures. Make a note of the ambient temp and then we will get an idea of how efficient the Forge cooler is as we will see how much above ambient it is at the redline.

    will do it mate as soon as i find someone with vcds. i think it's even better to do it in 4th gear as there is in my opinion biggest gain.
    anyways... today i'm getting denso ik24's.
    hope those pics will work:

    Yes l did Phil. looking forward to giving it some beans. l expect the characteristics will change when it gets colder again. But l can say it deffo feels better. Twintake next trip, as l was going to do anyways but l was told that the filter is looking a bit rusty. Seems there is different types of filter that has been supplied with these. Some have alloy mine doesnt. So with where it is then its a matter of time. After that l trip on the RR to see if lm going to change maps.

    Apparently not, They told me that they currently have the pre-facelift model in production, but not one ready to go on a facelift cars.

    They did say, they're not sure there's a lot to change, but it does need adjusting for the later cars.

    Either way, it'll be dyno'd before and after. (at stage 2 shark). just so they can measure the improvements.

    Can't believe!
    I've had to do custom pipes trim crash bar etc (you can see the work involved on the pics on first page).
    My tuner contacted forge and told them all about fitting issues on facelift. I thought they would solve that in short time, not after 2 and a half years...

    Revival?

    Someone said its best to just upgrade to have a single BETTER intercooler than to get the twin with stock. However
    what if you get say the THS (i think) big cooler than the forge aswel. would it be still beneficial?

    Hey,
    Forge do both the Race intercooler which is a upgrade from the oem one and we do the twintercooler.

    We have seen great success running both of them together under back to back testing.

    Please find the links below showing the products and dyno graph figures.
