    New T4 Members Forum
    Hi everyone. I'm looking to install an OEM intercooler on my 88bhp 2003 4 pin long nose (if anyone has one to sell?), and then plan to get a remap. But I want to be able to stop well with the extra power. So can I upgrade the brakes relatively easily/ do I need to put on bigger calipers etc. Did...
  2. Intercooler T5 BEHR 2009 Used - Nottingham / Beeston

    VAG Parts For Sale
    Hi, Replaced this intercooler while chasing down a boost leak when in actual fact the intercooler is leak free. It's sat around doing nothing so thought it might as well be put to good use. No leaks. Straps a little rusty but they are sturdy. I'd like to get a tenner for it. Collection from...

  6. ACV Vac Hoses

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hello All, I have been experiencing loss of power and have been getting code 00575 - manifold absolute pressure sensor. I am in the process of replacing all vac hoses and checking that the routing/installation is correct. Two questions; Where should the ECU vac hose go to? It is currently...
  7. Change of priorities sale!

    Parts For Sale
    Hmmm, It's a bit unfortunate, but our priorities have had to change. I'd been collecting parts to upgrade/modify/complete our Caravelle, but it has now developed some more significant problems that require funds to solve. So, much as I think I'll eventually regret it, I have to clear some...
  8. which Intercooler? Forge / Darkside

    Engine & Gearbox
    Forge is expensive at £400+. It also appears to use the clip style hoses which are problematic. Currently my gut is to go with the darkside developments one. Its £225 and looks like you can use their (hardpipe & silicone)kit, thus removing the problem of the VW clips... I have no experience...

  10. Intercooler hose part no.

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, Is anybody able to give me the part number for the rubber intercooler hose on the right hand side that connects to the egr on 55 plate t5 2.5 AXD engine? Our local VW garage refuse to give out part numbers. Also any idea of the best place to buy this cheaper than the VW price of £84.92...

  12. Is my temp sensor in the wrong place?

    Engine & Gearbox
    HI guys, just been looking at my intercooler pipework today as I've just ordered a PD130 inlet manifold and realised that A) The PD manifold faces out in the opposite direction to the one I have now. B) Am I being stupid or is the inlet temp snesor on the wrong side???? I though that the pipe...
  13. Splitter/IC grille advice

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi there, great bodywork gurus! I'm planning to get our 2.4D turbo'd by Mole later this year (budget permitting!) I've also spend some time looking at the various threads about location of an intercooler, which seem to suggest locating low down near the front is the best from a heat...
  14. Auto Box Fluid

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, I have just had my Sonnax kit and intercooler delivered and will be tackling the job soon, but one thing I need a bit of clarification on is the fluid level. I'm lucky enough to have a dipstick for my ATF, but when I fit the kit I'll have to add extra ATF so is the dipstick mark still...
  15. Auto Box Intercooler

    Engine & Gearbox
    I had a sneaky peek at a T4 Eurovan yesterday with a 2.5 petrol engine and an auto box...the box was fitted with an intercooler (factory fitted) but the IC itself was just a strip around 25mm in diameter including fins. The only reason I haven't fitted the auto box cooler mod is what size of...

But can anyone tell me what does this pipe I have highlighted do? and what to do with it...
  17. intercooler 1.9td ?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Im looking at fitting an intercooler to my 2001 1.9td abl, can any one tell me which one works better, a top mount or front mount intercooler? I am undecided because the top mount gains heat, but the front mount has longer pipe work, Thanks T:
  18. Sprinter intercooler just does not fit!

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hello all! Having recently carried out the TDi conversion, I have been trying to fit the sprinter intercooler. Having read most of the threads about it, I know that it is very tight around the radiator, but mine will just not go around it. When the driver side is tight up against the radiator...

  20. Intercooler upgrade = performance downgrade...what's gone wrong?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hey! just fitted my intercooler today to my 88bhp 2002 2.5 AJT engine in preparation for PP2. As I went off for my test drive I was rather disappointed to find out that instead of extra performance I seem to have lost power from the 3rd to 5th gear... It accelerates and revs fine in the first...
