Best write up i have possibly seen on here and that is saying something! Would love one of those intercoolers too.
Keep up the great work.

Incredible job Tom and incredible write up - your attention to detail, persuit of perfection and willingness to share what you have done in such a detailed way leaves me short of superlatives. Exceptional job!
Thank you so much Tom for taking the time to write such a detailed thread. By far the best thread I've read on the forum.
Wow!! Amazing write up... A new long term goal for me and the bar is set so high...
An instant classic post from a forum veteran. Absolutely fantastic. Thanks Tom.
Agree with all of the above. One of the best threads on this forum . Well done Tom. Much kudos and respect for an amazing job. With so much A2OC sewn into the very fibre of this engine rebuild it's an all round good news story. Thanks for sharing.
A fantastic, informative and inspirational thread Tom.
What a fantastic project and great write - up. It was a pleasure to play some small part in 'building the dream'
I must say that you ... did a really great job putting out the utmost from a good old 1.4TDI. Nice. Respect!
Top man. Top job. As usual. I bow to you, Sir Timmusness.
This is top drawer stuff Tom. THE best post on the forum and that is saying something. Truly amazing.
Great post, it shows what we all know on this forum, your OCDness is a truly remarkable gift. I'm as envious as your charge cooler pipes. Well done timmus.
Wow! Just...wow! I've just spent a delighted hour reading this and learning. I thought I had some idea about how the engine worked but this is another level! It looks amazing and I WANT IT!
Great work Tom and beautifully presented too.

We are a very fortunate club indeed, to have such a talented and intelligent guy who (like us), loves his A2 and who has invested much of his valuable time, effort and no doubt money into imagining, researching, developing, building and documenting this thoroughly mind boggling improvement for the benefit of our little diesel powered aluminium companions.
He could have been into Fords or Vauxhalls lucky us.
Just spent an enjoyable hour reading this thread whilst sitting in the sunshine outside our caravan. I can only echo the sentiments already expressed; amazing thoroughness, great write up and, if proof was ever needed, total confirmation of Tom's status of virtuoso supreme!
Bravo Tom! What a great write up, thanks.
Wow, what a thread!! Congrats, i've enjoyed reading and looking at the pics!!
Congratulations in putting it all together and getting it all done, and done right at that! Hope the engine goes on forever.
The length of that inlet tract is a bit of a horror show isn't it? The price Audi paid for having the turbo around the back of the engine, I guess.
Hope ... you start offering hose kits and intercoolers (aftercoolers actually) to club members
I particularly liked reading about the ceramic coating use and the special intercooler you have developed!
The intercooler and pipework make a lot of sense for starters!
Would love one of those intercoolers too.
I was thinking that too Euan if it's a case of 'when' not if the intercooler will fail. But I'll wait till the when.
Is the intercooler going to be produced in any numbers for purchase by members?
Where is everyone getting these silicone hoses from?
... well, I like to think so anyway!
I went for blue ...

After the changes to the turbo did you get the core rebalanced?
Also, as you did my map, you said the egr was now redundant. Can i remove the valve as you did and block the holes?
I will also be putting my name on the list for the intercooler and for the hoses in black for a Tdi 90 (As and when they become available).
