I am I have been on the phone to amd today and I am not that impressed I would like launch control and hard cut limiters if I'm honest to be put into the remap, r tech is a good price aswell

Does anyone have a good guide for fitting an intercooler I can only see a twincooler and I am fitting a single bigger one to replace the standard cheers

I was torn between a normal and a sintered one but I am hoping to get over 400 ft pounds of torque eventually and can't see the point in swapping it over again. Just hope it isn't that much of a pain to get use to

I'm having a. Nightmare with the pipes from the intercooler , I had it all fitted then it popped off when driving , the pipes from turbo revs don't fit as they are too long for the leon , has some custom ones made all sorted now

Just to update this if anyone is interested ,

I have got the uprated intercooler in , also auto tech internals and the AUDI rs4 fuel return valve ( I have no words for how fiddly the install was for the fuel return valve , just glad it’s all in now )

I have also had. Single mass flywheel and Sachs sintered clutch rated to 450 ft/lbs installed

I’ve also put a new fuel filter , pollen filter , oil and oil filter , and new spark plugs in , running like a dream

All booked in for a stage 2+ r tech remap on 15th December ,

Hoping for some nice numbers
