Hi, sorry to open up an old thread and I haven't been on here for ages but I need some advice @r5gtt.

I've finally got round to sorting my intercooler and I've opted for the s3 with alloy end tanks but I wanted to ask you if I need to change the pipes on it or will I just need to cut the old ones to fit. Thanks in advance and I'd really appreciate your input.

I’ve been reading this thread as I’m looking for an intercooler. There’s a lot of mentions of s3 intercoolers for £200. I’m being quoted £550 from the dealership. Are you guys talking about aftermarket eBay ones or something? If some one could send us a link would be appreciated! Also what’s the toyo sports and intercoolers like. Also what are perons? Thanks

That's the going rate for a used item rather than new. Usually plenty floating about

Ahhh ok. Thanks for the reply dan really appreciated. I’ve been looking for weeks but no joy. Im keeping an eye out on eBay, mk5 parts sales on Facebook and the audi-sport forum. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places?

You’re not the only one! I’ve also been looking for one recently and haven’t seen any.

There's 2 choices of S3 IC.  Pre-2009 which is about £550 as you say, and post 2009 which has plastic end tanks for £349ish.  Golf 6R is another option.   Darkside developments sell the pre-2009 S3 IC for £360 - https://www.darksidedevelopments.co.uk/products/audi-s3-intercooler-with-alloy-end-tanks-for-mk5-mk6-platform.html

Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

Thanks Pudding! I've actually found a second hand pre 2009 s3 intercooler for £220 with hoses. If id seen this before agreeing to buy, I would of checked Darkside out! all good, hopefully the one I'm getting is worth the slight saving.

No worries.  With s/hand intercoolers, I would take the time to clean them out thoroughly in case of turbo failure and also get a pressure test.  You can do that simply with a cheap gauge and a bike pump  :happy2:

I’ve decided to just get a new oem S3 intercooler from Darkside. I was just wondering if anyone thinks it’s worth upgrading to the Forge Turbo Hoses (https://www.awesomegti.com/shop-by-brand/forge/forge-turbo-hose-kit-for-vag-2-0tfsi/), or is it not worth it; will the originals do the job?

The original hoses will do the job, you must have to cut the hose at the metal bit, try to get it as tight to the metal as you can to save as much hose as possible.
