Swapped over the boost gauge today from the A4. A quick test flight shows that it'll spike 18-20psi, but will hold 15. I know I have a leaking intercooler (have replacement). Hopefully changing that out will yeild a couple psi :)

Started on the intercooler/snub mount job tonight. Getting the bumper off the S is really easy, but you have to be quite brave, It takes a lot of force. The old intercooler is out, and it was defo leaking. I think it took the brunt of the accident, and maybe was one of the only parts
not replaced. I was surprised that there was less dodgy stuff under hood than I expected. One interesting find, however, was an intercooler shroud that shows lines where to trim it before installation. It was untrimmed and probably about 30% blocked!
