upgraded intercooler, WOW

A big thanks to Randy(Tdi Guy) for getting me a great deal on an Alisport intercooler. I put this thing in, did a simple 3 minute minimal adjustment to my fuel pump and now its like a totally different truck. On a stretch of road that I typically needed to down shift to 4th and struggle up I now pull along easily in 5th. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner. For anyone that is considering this mod, do it, you will be very pleased. He also sells the VNT turbo kit, which I plan to do in the future when I can rebuild the engine to take the extra load, I'm just not sure of the mileage on it and dont want to overdo it. Again, thanks Randy

This is very relevant to a problem I'm having! Did you get the full width intercooler or one that fits in the stock spot?

In hindsight I wish I had gone with that option. I got the full width one and am having cooling difficulties stemming from both covering the radiator and increased airflow through the old intercooler location. On the plus side, I did have the same great performance gains that you're now experiencing, and no EGT problems.

I got the allisport stock location but double the width. It gives a good bump in performance, but I haven't gone crazy with the fueling. I didn't realize Randy could get these.
