    Hello all.

    Thought this may be of interest to some of you.

    I'm collecting parts up for my 2010 S3 in prep of going Stage 2+ in the near future and been looking into replacement FMIC's.

    On my previous Focus ST-3 Airtec by Autospecialists was the way to go for best performance and value and they also are very highly rated by the Focus RS boys and girls. The quality of his products is really top notch and the reputation of them on other marques speaks for itself.

    I called Alan at AS and got chatting about their Stage 2 Airtec Intercooler for out VAG TFSI engines, essentially unlike most of the IC's around for our cars (and the AS stage 1 they sell) this is completely redesigned from the gound up and in spec like no other available with a 55mm core, new end tanks that flow better than the competition, are tapered top to bottom in relation to the core which gives a larger surface area than others and billet mounting points for a perfect fit every time. He went on to say it's a product he's extremely proud of.

    Available in natural silver or Pro-Series satin black, with or without the Airtec logo (in various colours) and with high quality replacement silicone hoses (in various colours) and all fittings required along with full fitting instructions.

    Everywhere that stocks these (Awesome, AMD, GNJ) has them at the RRP of £595

    Alan has offered these at a superb Group Buy price of £495 (the same price as their cheaper "like the rest" intercooler) in any colour, hose colour and with free UK main land postage.

    We need just 4 people to make this happen! Well, actually 3 as I'm having one!
    :hubbahubba:


    Please reply if you have any questions or want to show interest. Also feel free to contact Alan directly at Auto Specialists if you like as he would be in a far better position to talk technicalities than me, and is a bloody nice chap to boot :)

    Likewise. This is next on my list of mods to get.... How long will this offer run as funds are getting funneled in to other avenues at the moment and this is a bargain that i'm not sure I can let slip through my fingers?......

    Excellent progress already.

    No end date guys and as many can join as we like :)

    If it would help drum up interest I'm tempted to contact Alan and point him in the direction of the thread, if he would let me have mine now I'd be willing to dyno the car, fit it and have the car dyno'd immediately after at Ecotune on my Stage1 S3, you will likely see a very good increase in mid range torque with this fitted even to a mildly tuned car as I've done some logging and even my cars intake temps are getting into ECU pulling power territory on a spirited run.

    That would be ideal... would be good to let people see first hand accounts of the advantage of this product..

    Reason I am asking is I potentially wont have funds available till after SCS on the 24th of July so if its still running then I would take full advantage of it then but right now, as i've said, money is going in to other avenues to get the car ready for SCS.

    My car is screaming out for an uprated FMIC as on these clammmy hot days I can feel the difference in the cars performance.

    I might be interested but i'd like the know the difference in terms of power and/or performance vs standard on a Stage 2+. I am going to look into it and see what I find, but feel free to post info if anyone has any.

    I'd be interested in seeing the gains. I've been contemplating an intercooler for a while now, and if I do go for one I want it to be worthwhile in terms of results.

    Hi Ben, shouldnt be a problem shippin it to France but you may want to call Alan directly (number in the first post) to get a price.

    No end date on this group buy.


    Hey mate.

    Basically we need to get confirmed commitment and I can call Alan to inform him we have the minimum required of 4 ready then just a case of calling up Alan at AS and placing your order individually.

    Does anyone know if these are a straight replacement or is there some modding to do to fit?
    Interested to see if it makes a difference on Muzzas car.

    Right guys, I've just spoken to Allan @ Auto Specialists.

    The group buy is officially open!


    Mines ordered and should be with me for the middle of next week, if anyone wants to place their order now then feel free.

    Please just call Allan at Auto Specialists (Quoting the Muzza/ASN Group Buy) on 01375 371 449 to place your order directly the price is £495 delivered to UK mainland

    We will run this until the 15th of August or until 10 are sold whichever is sooner, we can look at the possibility of extending it if there's more demand. They have a couple more in stock right now and more at the fabricators just now which will be ready in a week or so.



    Muzza80 - Black - No Logo - Black Hoses (PAID FOR 17/07/2014)
    OrkneyS3 - Black - Red Logo - Red Hoses

    I have an Airtec stage 2 Intercooler fitted to my S3 - running at stage 2+ and it was initially hard to notice the difference because of the huge power gains from stage one , However were it has been hot recently i have noticed my car does not lag or lack power what so ever so these get a massive thumbs up from me! :)When fitted you cant see the intercooler or the pipes unless your head is pretty much inside the engine!hope that gives you a bit of insight!Alex
