    Default Intercooler blowing

    Looks like I need to replace the leaking intercooler on my 2004 1.9 8V. Replacement from Vx is pretty steep at £215. Quite a few cheaper ones on ebay but they are all the 34mm thick version for the 16V engine whereas mine is 29mm thick.
    Anyone know if I can use the thicker one on the 8V engine or will it confuse the ECU?
    Or anyone seen the 29mm thick intercooler going for a sensible price anywhere?

    I think this is the one for your car, best check with them to make sure, but it's a genuine Vx part at a bargain price of £51 :
