Hello all, originally posted in the B5 section, but thought maybe here more appropriate.

I have a Revo'd 1.8T FWD A4, which is otherwise standard, (apart from DV30 & a panel filter) - for now.

I want a bit more go without changing the turbo etc. I can't yet afford a new exhaust but have in mind a de-cat, then exhaust system, but have been looking around at doing a few other things to maximise the original set-up. Was thinking of the S4 vented arch liner and doing something to get air to the front of and through the intercooler.

Has anyone tried or are running a power gasket for the inlet manifold & or uprated inlet pipe? Are they worthwhile and cost effective? If not what else can be done - within reason?
