  4. Check your intercooler, before it splits!

    General T5 Chat
    (applies to all 1.9 and 2.5 T5s, -I don’t know about 2.0l) From checking the forum it’s well known that intercoolers fail, some because of stones and roadkill, some due to failed welds on end tanks, but the largest number seem to be like mine, where the top and bottom tubes split. On closer...

    Looking at intercoolers...thinking if im going to get one i may aswell get a bigger than stock one, common sense says front mount gets cooler air to it than right ontop of the engine block and the L200, Pajero options dont seem that cheap once youve bought brackets/hoses etc. So.........Are...

    New T4 Members Forum
    Loving my T4 camper - its a 51 reg - 2.5tdi 88bhp I think - the one with the blue coloured "i". Does this configuration suit tuning or maybe upgraded intercooler. Anything to get a bit more pep in the engine. With 4 people on board plus gear the van struggles up steep hills and overtaking is...
  15. Any way/point in remap without intercooler?

    Engine & Gearbox
    I've got a 2.5tdi it's 88bhp. Its just a wee bit flat when compared to my Golf Gti. I'm just wondering if there's any way to get a bit more power with a remap or do I need to go down the intercooler route. I'm only after a wee bit more power and would be well happy with 110bhp. Any thoughts.
