T4 Post Icon 1.9 tdi conversion

hi all
started my 1.9 tdi conversion this weekend

old abl engine out , front mount intercooler fitted
abl motor stripped
ahu engine stripped and cleaned
just a couple of small probs on rebuild of ahu :

do i use the water connection on the side of engine behind pump off of a golf as the abl one has 2 sensores on it wich get in the way off the injector wires

am i right that a golf one has a extra smsll take of pipe for the pipe that was on the metal pipe at the end of the abl head

also i have fitted front mount intercooler behind bumper and have used 2.5 inch pipeing . is the g15 turbo powerfull enought . or do i need to use 2 inch .i have the 2.5 inch pipe but it looks very big

thanks
paul

cheer for asking that paul was just about to ask the same question.
got my abl out today, bit of drilling and tapping of holes tomorrow build up engine and put it back in late on.
i left the gearbox in found it easier to remove engine
have you a list of bits for the intercooler you have used? looked at 2 lists on here and 2 different sets of parts.
hope it all ok for your rebuild.
