    Hi..
    The standard IC should be able to handle the 200bhp..
    Do You know Wat has been done to make it 200bhp?
    I also Got a tdi 130 with a ecu mod, which makes it about 160bhp
    Was thinking of a KKK BV43 turbo(from 170tdi) and maybe other injectors..

    mine is a tdi 100 mate, it has a 130 hybrid turbo, milltec cat back,derv doctor map, and a stupid huge air filter sat directly above my turbo :keule:. possibley already has injectors but im not 100% on that,

    but as a mate pointed out to me last night, my last 2 cars were a 400/400 evo and a 280bhp st so even if it was 200 if will feel like a moped

    Standard coolers are good to 270Bhp. What year is yours ? Early a4 b6 tdi quattro had all alloy intercoolers, later had plastic intercoolers so they cannot hold as much boost as early ones !

    My a6 avant is still on factory FMIC, altough it's from an early allroad so it's made entirely of aluminium, runs approx 300Bhp !

    Injectors are quite dear on the PD 130 engine, nobody in uk knows how to set Bosio or Firad nozzles so they are not popular ! A hybrid turbo will have trouble pushing 200Bhp, even BV43 is laggy on stock hardware. Mine has a remap, EGR delete, BV43, stock intercooler and just been rebuilt and it's still dog slow !

    You won't get a direct fit kit FMIC for the A4 Tdi, you will have to get a universal cooler and the buy the pipes and bends to fit it.

    AVB engines(101bhp) with stock injectors cam make maximum 160-165bhp,so you are a bit far from 200bhp.

    You can fit AM FMIC,have a look on my build thread,i all ready done it 2years ago.

    I would be more interested in the torque figures than bhp, afterall bhp is top end which in this country you can very rarely use.

    Hasn't Gordy just bought a fmic from darkside?

    Look at the recent threads mate and you'll find it, not a bad fit but expensive apparently.

    I have a plastic cooler I think and it's leaking a tiny tiny bit I noticed.

    A bv43, fmic, egr delete, straight through exhaust and your sorted.
    Injectors are fine for the power you can get on pd130s

    If you want mega power from a derv buy a 3.0tdi

    FMIC = Front Mount InterCooler

    BV43 is a turbo derivative from the later 2.0tdi 170bhp Audis.
