The 965 intercooler is good, but you'll need to lose your condensor in the lid and relocate it IIRC.

BTW, I have a Kokeln from 7-8 years ago.
I recently put in a Kokeln long neck- and, although the car runs well with it, I was amazed at the poor quality of welds/construction that you get for close to $1900 for the kit (through IA). The overboost switch mounting hole was poorly tapped and it stripped as I hand-tightened the sending unit. I wound up having a plug welded in and grounding the switch. My welder nearly tossed his cookies when he saw the welds on the Kokeln unit- there was visible dirt in them and they appeared to have been done by an amateur. If I had it to do all over again I may "chance it" with the B6 unit because it's basically a polished copy of the Kokeln unit- and if you buy it directly from B6 it's a heck of a lot less $ than the Kokeln, B&B, Andial...or any other brand that I've seen. I say, "chance it" because there have been reported issues some have experienced with poor communication, inadequate packaging leading to shipping damage and long production times (if you do a search you'll see what I mean). It's possible that B6 had some early growing pains and is now on the ball...so it may be worth giving them a call. My $.02.
