Consider upgrading those jubilee clips to the t style clamps. My 300c had a habit of blowing off the pipes with the standard jubilees on. I am running higher boost on a remap though...

Lovely, very clean and well done, by the way, what does an intercooler do ?

Thanks. The intercooler basically cools the air from the turbo before it goes into the engine. This allows more oxygen to be burnt since cooler more dense air contains more oxygen. Bigger turbos generate more heat therefore they benefit from bigger intercoolers. The end result is more oxygen available generally means more power to be extracted.

Another great how to video. It is videos such as this, that give people the confidence to have a go themselves and avoid garage bills. Like the humour too, made me chuckle.

Torque Steer it works fine, my videos are very amateur compared to yours mainly because I have a spanner in one hand and the camera in the other. What video editing software do u use?

Yeah was about to ask the same thing. Does installing a bigger intercooler having any advantages / disadvantages? Hopefully in a few months will also do a proper detail on my car

Haha thanks. He said that the car feels more eager although it might just be a pseudo effect according to him. He said it should help prevent heat soak issues when booting it so there is no loss of power.

That model is known for oil consumption issues has he not had any?

yeah but as the car gets old, oil leakage is normal due to car's parts wearing out and its impossible or unwise to replaced everything in the car. if you had 1 year old car then yes you should really never have to change oil until oil change but if you have a 9 or 10 years old car you can't expect the same

+What you see what you get that would purely depend on how much oil is in it and how much oil the minimum requirement is. How long is a piece of string?. If you have to add oil more than once in 12 months you'll have to have it inspected. It should have enough oil to last between services. The amount of oil that blows by the turbo should be very minimal. If you are concerned about the condition of your turbo(s) then remove the intercooling pipe (pre intercooler) and check inside it for oil. It is a 5 minute job and extremely easy. If there is liquid oil in the pipe then the intercooler needs to be drained and the turbos inspected. If there is only a light coating that looks like carbon/dirt then that is normal.

+Torque Steer also i had oil consumption issues so audi agreed to pay for the engine rebuild. Since in uk its quite cold the inter cooler shouldn't really boost much power than befofe
