I'm sure a few others might chime in with tales of their B6 experiences but at the end of the day, my B6 IC fitted and works just fine, although it wasn't all plain sailing.
A few points to note ...
  • it is an extremely tight fit under the engine cover and required a bit of "adjusting" of mounting points to get it just right
  • the plastic shroud under the engine cover comes out (I replaced shroud with three pieces of sheet metal that fitted to original shroud mounting points (can get pics if you want)
  • some supplied hardware was wrong size and wrong thread
  • the boost switch is remounted on the IC and if you don't have a good earth to the IC you won't be able to start engine
  • the pipe coming from the turbo had to be shortened by about 15mm (I cut it close to the top and used hose to reconnect the two parts)
You may not have some of these problems if your IC is coming from another car.
Also, my IC is B6's 930 upgrade so it may be slightly different to yours.
