    here's some info on the I/C's avail no figures but having owned an ED30 and fitted the S3 I/C its def worthwhile and I have bought another to go on my 8P. The orig poster on that post had one fitted and he had lower temps but I cant find his post about them.

    More intercooler options for the 2.0T :) - SEAT Cupra.net - SEAT Forum

    found it, this was a MKII Leon Cupra
    As a guideline, on mine, with stock code and no other mods, we saw inlet temps decrease from 30oC to 17oC with outside ambient temp of 13.5oC.

    On a mapped car, we saw 20-25% drop in inlet temp with the S3 intercooler.

    Thanks for the info manor13. My main worry is the boost pressure difference between a 2.0 TFSI and a 2.0 TDI. When people start running 25+ PSI on their TFSI Is the S3 cooler still up to the job?

    i doubt it as that more then a stg 2+ i would assume on a k04 westy.. it think the Airflo and THS FMIC are good and i think Alex has also posted another one just forgot the name but its on his thread.

    As you can see from my pics above there is a fair bit of oil in the boost hoses which will be sapping my power. Also the boost hoses are really soft so it all needs replacing. I'm sure with a clean FMIC and a catch can ill get most of my performance back.

    Can anyone tell me if the 50mm Allan key bolts pictured above from the EGR delete are a standard Audi bolt?

    1 has dropped out which may explain some of my poor performance.

    Interesting. Been through his feedback to see if anyone has commented on this cooler but can't find anything. Looks the part but I'd prefer to hear experiences of it.

    Do you know what, I was thinking this on my way into work this morning! I bet it was run as a twintercooler and that's why there was so much lag. It would also explain the small core :think:

    I'd love to have a big cooler just behind the bumper by itself as that'll offer the best performance and cooling but If an S3 cooler upgrade keeps the temps down on a hybrid It definitely looks the easiest option, if a little expensive.

    Thread revival of the worst thread ever ;) Not quite as good as my last thread that's for sure!

    Anyway, not much to report. My gearbox gave up the ghost and gave me a nice big bill. I have now sourced a new bonnet to go with my face lift big grill bumper and the new boot lid. Just need to get it all painted and fitted ASAP then I'm done. Might get the wheels returned but that's about it.

    Yeah sorry about that. A weekend at the Nurburgring has made me want to buy an E92 M3 but unfortunately they cost too much. Might look at an E46 though.

    Do it! Just make sure you budget for rear subframe work or get one that's already had the work done. I'm on the lookout for a B7 RS4 or E92 M3, it just has to be done!

    Finally got round to sorting out my facelift front end and new boot today.

    Managed to get a bonnet, bumper, and boot lid all in akoya silver to save me the painting costs.
