I've searched and guessing this topic has been discussed but can't find what I'm looking for. I want to replace my boost/intercooler pipework to get rid of the dodgy VAG connectors. I can hear the faint sounds of a boost leak and i get the odd drop of oil drpping out of my joints.
I can only find the Darkside SMIC kit for the 1.9 ASZ engine. The kit looks great but is a bit pricey for me - i was looking more in the region of £200-225.
Does anyone know of kits you can cobble together from different sources? I've seen SMIC intercoolers on ebay for around £70. I can't find any pipework kits to join it together though.
I have the EGR valve still in place but disconnected (inc the pipe that goes to the manifold). I'd like to keep it for the ASV valve but if I had to remove it to fit a pipework kit I would.
I don't fancy messing about hacking things to bits to fit a FMIC... My aims with the car are to give a bit more oomph with a Stage 1 map to 170ish and to cure the boost leaks.
