    Call Forge and explain the problem.

    Best also to send a few pics.

    I am no fan of the Twintercooler but I am definitely a fan of their other products and service.

    Intrigued.

    I know this will sound like a dim question but you haven't fitted the pipes the wrong way round / or fitted the wrong one on the wrong side?

    mine didn't fit either had to make and pay custom pipings go to the other shop for pipings and so on, fitting take twice as long and twice as much cash.
    didn't get any replacement forge pipings or anything just we are sorry didn't know that it doesn't fit facelift s3...was really pissed at the moment..
    here are the pics of mine:

    To be honest,the plumbing and so on were amongst the reasons that I went for a single purpose built large intercooler.

    True.....I've made a few wrong turns along the way with other cars,but thanks to you guys here and on VAGOC,this has been good so far.......have a look at both Airtec and ProAlloy.
