After 1000~1500 miles for the valves. then whenever you service it.

check the head bolts for torque too (eventhough they're stretch bolts, wouldn't hurt to check them now, whilst fresh, and see if you can read what the current torque is, then after the mileage check they're similarly tight... although to be honest i've never heard of any troubles with them)

It might not be a bad idea to check them, before you start driving it, too...
You never know !

x2 check it before the first start up, unless you are absolutely sure it is to spec.

MAtt,

Did you drop this in yourself?

I think I may have just found a helping hand for when I drop mine in.

Define "service". At every oil change? I've heard this from some folks, seems a bit aggressive but I'm willing to do it if that's what is best. I've been going every 8,000-10,000 miles.

Yeah, every oil change (can't remember the book service interval for the 200 Tdi off the top of my head... 10k miles?)

For the few minutes it takes to whip the rocker cover off and stuff the feeler guage under the caps, it's no big deal.
Makes the engine much quieter too if the gap is correct.

Where did you get the intercooler? On ebay or from their site?

I got it directly from the site, but originally found them on ebay. I was looking for a cheap universal intercooler and just randomly found that they had a knock off of the allisport / allard intercooler.

http://www.ssautochrome.com/level.itml/icOid/1437

About half way down the page.


The construction is solid but the welding and finishing was crude. Still huge compared to stock and not 900 bux .

This thing is not a drop in piece, you need to trim the body part that the grille attaches to and weld up brackets. Took me about 2 nights of work to get it done. If I had better steel selection and better welder/ skill it wouldhave been much easier
