Hello A2 TDI owners,

With this post, I am opening a group order phase for the all-alloy intercooler, as used in my TDI120: http://www.a2oc.net/forum/showthread.php?32986

This intercooler is suitable for all A2 TDIs, whether they be right-hand-drive, left-hand-drive, 1.4 TDI, 1.2 TDI, etc. If your A2 runs on diesel, this intercooler is for you.

As many A2 TDI drivers will be aware, the original intercooler fitted by Audi is poorly made and unreliable. A failed intercooler results in the car entering 'limp home mode'. Replacements won't always be available from Audi and, even whilst they are, the poor reliability of the original unit remains. As such, a replacement that offers both bullet-proof reliability and increased effectiveness is needed.
The shortcomings of the original Audi unit and existing third-party replacements are documented here: http://www.a2oc.net/forum/showthread.php?32986&p=281492#post281492

The all-alloy intercooler that is available for purchase here solves all reliability issues, offers increased cooling capability and fits the car as standard. In order to fit this intercooler, there is no need to modify any components of the car in any way.
A full description of all the benefits of this intercooler, and how these benefits are achieved, can be read here: http://www.a2oc.net/forum/showthread.php?32986&p=281493#post281493

The all-alloy intercooler is manufactured by Pro Alloy Motorsport, a UK-based, FIA-approved automotive manufacturer who specialise in race-standard heat exchangers. They have manufactured intercoolers, coolant radiators and fuel systems for Ferrari, Lotus, Noble, Aston Martin, Cosworth, various performance Audis, countless classic cars and many others. Their expertise with alloy manufacturing means they've also been heavily involved in the restoration of Bluebird K7. Pro Alloy Motorsport's website can be seen here: http://www.proalloy.co.uk/
Note that this intercooler for the A2 TDI is not available directly from the manufacturer.

The intercooler that Pro Alloy Motorsport produce for the A2 uses the later 12mm MAP sensor. If your A2 currently uses the older 18mm sensor, a new 12mm sensor will be needed. If your A2 does not have a MAP sensor fitted in the intercooler (such as the TDI90), then a blanking plate for the sensor hole will be provided. All intercooler kits are supplied with bolts suitable for mounting the MAP sensor or the blanking plate.

The total cost of the intercooler is £495, though this may reduce slightly if a particularly large number of orders is received.

Postage costs are not included.
For UK orders, there are numerous postage options. It is possible to have the intercooler posted directly to your address for £15. Alternatively, they can be posted to a garage of your choice or to WOM Automotive, who are my recommended installer. They can also be posted to me, for delivery at a later date when I'm on a UK-wide A2 tour. If a large number of intercoolers are to be posted directly to me or to WOM Automotive, delivery costs ought to be minimal.
International postage can be arranged. Please let me know your address and I'll supply a quote.

The intercooler comes with a 12-month warranty against manufacturing defects, but, if installed properly, it should last as long as the A2 itself. The company who manufacture the unit have tested it to 100psi, so the A2 turbo will never break it! The manufacturer describe themselves as "world champions in customer goodwill", so if you have any problems outside of the standard warranty, they will be happy to help.

Should you wish to purchase an all-alloy intercooler, please post in this thread and send me a private message containing the following information:
- First name and surname
- Full address (including street name, house name/number, town, postcode)
- Email address
- The number of intercoolers you wish to order
- Your model of TDI (75bhp, 90bhp, 1.2 TDI)
Once I have received this information, I will send you a private message and/or email with my bank account details.

I hope to leave this order phase open for approximately 8 weeks, at which point manufacturing will begin. (Provisional order phase end: 31st Aug 2017)

Depending on demand, there may be further order phases in the future, but this cannot currently be guaranteed. As such, if you want one now or don't want to risk your current intercooler dying after the manufacturing run, get your name down! Whilst the all-alloy intercooler can be considered a performance product, it is also a product designed for reliability. Therefore, no matter what the nature of your relationship with your A2, this upgrade makes sense for all.

Many thanks,

Tom

1 intercooler for me please Tom. Confused why you need our bank account details though - we need yours in order to do a payment transfer but not vice versa? Storing name, home address and banking details on a potentially un-encrypted forum is not very sensible.

You're on the list, Simon.

You are absolutely right, I don't need bank details as such. I asked for these details to be included simply to help me to keep track of who'd paid and who hadn't, but I'm sure full name will suffice. Original post edited. :)

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom,

I would like to cancel my pre-order of the intercooler. Please put me off the list.

Sorry for any inconveniences caused. You do know how badly I wanted to have a better IC cause it could be a perfect upgrade. Unfortunately, my plans have changed.

Nevertheless, I am still interested in purchasing your other parts for the intake manifold that are not subject to this specific thread. Hopefully, they will be available soon.

Hi Bala de Plata,

I am most surprised! You've known about these intercoolers for about a year and have always seemed very keen, so I am now curious to know what you have planned.
Anyway, that's not a problem at all. I have removed your name from the list. :)

Cheers,

Tom

5 weeks to go in which to order an intercooler.

This could be a once-only opportunity. There's no guarantee that there'll be another production run after this one.

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom,
I wish I was at the stage of car refurbishment that I could be part of this but I hope it is something that might be available again in the future.

Best of luck in getting enough interest to keep the manufacturer sweet to the idea of a future run.

Alex.

Hi Tom,

I've put my name for one, but in reality will need two. Only problem are the finances as I can't order both at the same time. I was hoping that I will be able to order the second one within next couple of months, so I'm joining Pinkythelabrat in hope that it will be available some time in the future (for the second one).

Regards,

Boris
