Re: Can I put my intercooler here?

Provided you have a shroud and air routed to it don't see why not. That's basically where it is on the 211 so would suggest that you seek out some pictures of that install. Thanks yes was going to duct into and out of it. Didn't realise the 211 had it there, will do some research - many thanks :-)

Can I put my intercooler here?

Ok, so I'm in the middle or a (more or less) total rebuild. Front end done, now on to engine and box removal for overhaul. One thing I'm not happy about is intercooler position, apart from the fact that there's nowhere for the air to escape to (I will be cutting out numberplate area for this), the i...

Re: fitting TC to the S1

Nice fix :-) Thanks for that. Just need to speak to DTA to make sure the ecu will be happy with a different no of pulses from front to rear.

fitting TC to the S1

Ok, so I'm going to skip my VAG ecu and fit a DTA S80 pro, this will give me the ability to use a quite sophisticated TC option.
No problem fitting rings and sensors on the rear hubs - but the front looks a little more complex - has anyone done it? And if so, HOW???

Where can I get a rear grill like this from?

I presume this grill was made for the motorsport elise? I am currently rebuilding/renovating my S1 exige and I have lots of extra air going into the engine compartment (to cool the intercooler) and I need to get it out again :crazy:
Anyone know??

Many thanks

Re: VAG sequential box for us 1.8t owners

Maybe I'll just work on getting the shift better (& quicker then).
Does seem a tad expensive for a road car!
Thanks

Re: VAG sequential box for us 1.8t owners

Basic is about £7k, with bells & whistles, £9k.
Just the gearkit alone is £5750 (I think that includes VAT).
