Re: Intercooler Trivia, Stock intercooler good for 1.8 bar?

My ic does not have the aluminum end cap as yours does. Doesn't have the
flange for the intakes air temp sensor, either. I do have a factory
training manual with a drawing that does show what you have seen, though.
Your assumption may be correct. It may be for the 182 hp (KG?) euro turbo
