    just needing some advice on the intercooler kit for the a3 from toyosports on ebay, its £250 and is supposed to be a direct fit, has anybody used this kit and know if its any good? i hear the turbo revs kit for £200 is pretty good but doesn't fit that well so if the £250 0ne fits better and is good i think its worth the extra.

    The turbo revs one fits well, but you loose the fogs though, I rekon the £250 would loose the fogs too, youll need a custom job or forge to be able to keep the fogs.Spray the pipes black if you plan on loosing the fogs though.

    And get the cold side diverter kit for your dump valve as its much much easier to fit with one on ( as Prawn said) . And youll need a MAP sensor socket adapter.

    Should be the same I think - turbo outputs to the same place, and pipework on the S3 runs in essentially the same place. If you had to change at all, it wouldn't be much....
