What about petrol cars. Can the engine AUA be changed with 1,6 FSI?, or is it much easier just to replace it with new AUA. Found one new on ebay;

MIne is having 210000 KM and is leaking oil + the noise it makes while running reminds on diesel engine.

This would require loom work the internal loom is different on the 1.4i to the 1.6fsi it would be a massive job

Hi Tom,
I've just caught your amazing TDI story and the lengths you went to, to achieve it. Awesome 👍
Looking to do 'something' of a similar ilk, but certainly no where near as extensive as your project, I was wondering what make/model of Intercooler and Turbo you used? Also, you imply that the Turbo/Manifold swap is just that - a swap? Does the increased Turbo output need the increased Injector capacity or will the ECU/Vacuum system within a standard TDI75 (albeit breathed on by Vince @ Stealth Racing) cope with managing it?
Lastly, the Silicone Tubes used for the inlet delivery, what make did you use and where did you source them from?
I know you posted this many moons ago, but I hope you might have some memories or records.
Many thanks for any info you can give.
Mich

Hi @MichST4,

Many thanks for your kind words.

All of these items are custom fabricated. In the case of the intercooler and the silicone hoses, they're only available through me. The intercoolers are manufactured in batches, meaning availability is dependent upon stocks/demand. The silicone hoses are manufactured on demand and are usually delivered within a fortnight of the order being placed.

My right wrist is currently in a splint, and typing with only my left hand is slow and arduous, so please accept my apologies for the brevity of my reply. I shall endeavour to answer your other questions once I have a full set of limbs again. :)

Kind regards,

Tom

Hi Tom,
Sorry to read of your impediment....climbing again perchance??
Thank you for getting back to me despite your suffering. Regarding the Silicone ducting, I’d like very much to replace my OEM rubber with something rather more exotic. However, and this may be a problem. I’ve a BHC spec engine that has separate EGR and Splutter Valve. The Splutter Valve has a specific quick release/retention clip as a means of connecting the inlet duct to the manifold system. Whereas I noticed with yours, that your combined, albeit modified, EGR & Splutter Valve has a straight on push fit & clamp arrangement. Are these replacement Silicone ducts able to take my setup or would I likely need to introduce a sleeve to join the old and the new???
Whilst you’re chewing on that one, I seriously hope your wrist repairs itself to full functionality and in a timely manner 👍🏻
Many thanks Tom
Mich

I too have been looking for the scoop (or air diverter) for the intercooler. It seems not included in the VAG part system database, I have been asking the local VAG dealer but they cant find the scoop. Luckily @A2Steve kindly could share a picture of a scoop from one of his breaker (thanks Steve) that shows the part number:

Just in case no-one here is able to find one in the recycled parts, Audi Tradition still have them - (brexit & importation duty chaos notwithstanding)
