    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:

    Just had mine fitted as well. Not done many miles but there is a difference. Feels keener.

    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.

    Please tell us more. Did you experience pressure drop with the twincooler?

    it was related to post #59 about running forge race ic and twintercooler together.
    i don't know actually as i've done ic and the remap at the time. but a guy from here switched from twintercooler to single bigger wagner cooler and he says it makes a big difference...
    i might also go for single ic...

    I see. Thinking about adding twincooler to my stock S3 intercooler (metal end tanks). Not sure how that would affect pressure and flow. I'm guessing most of air would go through the twincooler as it'd be cooler but it is a lot smaller than stock, now would that be an efficient setup?

    Single big intercooler here.

    I bought a Proalloy a few yrs ago and with WMI it works very well in keeping intake temps down.

    + 1

    My car was the test dummy for the facelift Forge S3 intercooler and Forge were A1.

    I had 22bhp gain from the stock intercooler to Forges' single big Intercooler on the same dyno the very next day after fitment.

    Can't argue with that. :)

    I have no doubt a big single works very well but as I plan to add water spray to the front mount so the twincooler seems to be a good idea.

    So can anyone confirm that the forge twincooler for facelift S3 8P3 is out?

    Is it the same kit as for Golf R? Where's best place to make the purchase?

    A far more effective method of reducing inlet temps is a single large effective intercooler and WMI.

    Just an update to this thread. S. was kind enough to sell me his modified twincooler since they never made a proper version for the facelift S3 sportback. The cooler is on it's way to me now, once it's setup with a water spray system I'll report back whether it works well or not.

    For drag racing, I need the ability to keep the intercooler cool whilst idling/ waiting in queue, hence needing a water spray system with a proper FMIC that sits in front of the AC condenser. But there is no doubt that a single large cooler would work very well whilst the car is in motion.

    In all honestly both the Forge single replacement or Twintercooler`s work well... We have fitted both here at LVSR HQ. Only other I would fit is the Eurojet item.
