Don't think it'd be worth your while fitting an uprated intercooler unless you uprate the turbo too. For the extra 3-4hp it'd give on your current set-up it's a small increase for a fair old wedge. I'd wait till you've got a bigger turbo if I was you.

Cheers, Jim

with the k03 s is it a simple bolt on item? it off a seat leon 1.8t and i`m told that it is. i`ve got to cut the gay muffler thingy off it though.

will the revo need retuning? can this be done. my engine code is agu non dbw

Fit a towing ball. When the idiot is so close you can't see his lights jab the brakes.[:D]

Revo dont write a code for the AGU / KO3s combo, it will still run OK with the K03s but you will not get the full potential from it.

TimSims has a K03s on his AGU so it may be worth you having a chat with him.

You will have to go for a 'custom' (lol) remap from the likes of Jabbasport.

Maybe and it will request it for longer.

Tim is using a boost vlave with good results though.

or you can get a 15" exhaust and some under car neons. Im sure they'd give you 50bhp extra and shave 3 secs off your 0-62. On a serious note, you seem to have the right mods on the car so it seems strange a saxo is keeping up

vinny the r32 bumper was from a mate who works in the body shop at the steelers and it came in on a smashed 32 and he repaired it and gave me it.i needed it to be able to fit my intercooler behind. i will be looking to put some skirts on but not sure which ones as i dont want a 32 rep.
