    Only by giving extra cooling to the air going through the turbo don't think u actually see any gains just better when being driven hard

    Without other mods it's pointless. Once remapped/chipped it's useful as I found my charge air temps were very high on the dyno

    It's definately been on the receiving end of some tweeking to match an Ashtray VXR. Mine was making 190bhp ish last time I tussled with one and he was still edging away from me

    Wildlife outruns a Vectra V6 to be fair, exceedingly over rated car (and extremely unpleasant **shudders**)

    simples
    if your running stock levels, dont bother,you dont need to fmic, as the stock cooler is more then capable

    if you looking at going any thing over 220bhp then change it.


    but saying this you can well change to a fmic for £200 with a kit from ebay. if you wish, as it wont hurt performance and adds to the turbo agressive look of a big fmic
    FMIC AUDI A3 A4 A6 TT 1.8T TURBO INTERCOOLER KIT | eBaynd you dont even need to go big, it can be the same volume or even can be smaller then the current cooler, its just its surface area and the fact its in the direct flow of incoming cool air. were as the stock cooler is tucked away a little

    you wont see any performance increase to stock bhp. other then on summer days. and in the cold you will see bigger gains because the ambient temp is cooler, so charge temp will be lower to begin with and the ic will be more efficient
