Replacement intercooler
« on: October 27, 2019, 09:11:37 PM »
Hi guys got a 2008 Ed30
The intercooler is looking pretty knackered , I was thinking of replacing it .
What’s your options on replacement intercooler and  prices , or does anyone have a good second hand one .
Cheers

The S3 / 6R one would be a decent choice unless you intend tuning to 400bhp levels. Typically start from around £100 for a used one. Quite a few people will insist on the earlier alloy model however inside knowledge suggests the later iteration with plastic ends flows better and is also cheaper.

Are you sure you're not looking at the Air con condenser?  That is the front most radiator and takes all the stones, so the intercoolers rarely fail unless the end tanks crack from too much boost.

If you mean the pipe connections are all oily and dripping, then as above, 6R/S3 will solve that.
Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.
