    hi all, im new to the site, and im in need of some help if possible..?

    basically we'v just recently bought an a3 1.8t and we bought one of those ebay front mount intercooler kit's, but when i come to remove the satndard i/c i found that it has what looks like to me a map sensor on the cold side of the i/c...?

    im just wondering if there's anything i can buy to get over this, and im also wondering where i can buy a boost hose tht goes from the cold side of the i/c to the inlet manifold, but i need one with a take off so i can fit a recirc valve, iv found kit's, but i only literlly need that one pipe...

    any help with this would be awesome!!!

    also, while im here, is there many south east (near eastbourne) members on here?

    I used the seat leon double pillar gauge pod (can buy single ones) as they fit the pillars and only need to trim a bit off to fit 100% cost about 30 on ebay
