I have a B6 installed...it took some modification to the mounting tabs...the holes were off center and required me to have the holes welded shut and re-drilled. I had one fellow do it who didn't know what he was doing and kept blowing off the up pipe fitting. Took it to IPB here in Sacto' and they did it right. The intercooler is really quite nice and does a good job of cooling, but it was a bit of a hassle getting it to fit. I had to trim the plastic shroud, but found another in case I want to retro to stock. I slit a piece of black hose and ran it around the edge of the shroud to seal against the intercooler. It's worked well here in the Sacto' valley where summers are hot. I haven't tracked it so I cant' address how well it would work under heavy load for a long run....heat soak etc. I paid $1K for it then paid another couple $400 plus for refit so you may be better off getting one that's a drop in and run. Maybe B6 has addressed the fitment issues by now...but it was NOT a plug and play fitment as was advertised.
