    confused intercooler

    My mate has offered me a intercooler and said he will fit it to.
    But is it worth fitting or any benfits from doing so?

    dont bother tbh m8, the turbo lag would drive you mad

    Others have already come to the same conclusion. Standard setup on the 2.0T works just fine, and the turbo lag is minimal.

    IMO If you want to spend money what you should consider is a remap and a 314mm brake upgrade.
