intercooler on my euro 86 w KG engine (i think the us 84 I5 turbos were KH's):
- both endcaps are plastic
- has the 7/8 port on the inlet side, which feeds wg, isv and fi air shrouds
- not sure if it has the temp sensor boss - i believe my air temp sensor
  is mounted on the intake manifold near the throttle.
- made by Langerer & Reich (stamped on the i/o cap)
- audi part # 035 145 805E (best as i can read it, stamped on the i/o cap)
- also has 3717204 on it (best as i can read it, stamped on the i/o cap)
- if there is anything else stamped on the i/o cap or printed on the
  bottom, it can wait until i remove the ic.
 (i have 3 meters of 13mm ss hose clamp material ready for that eventuality.)
