So, engine is installed. No change in sound, but power... power is missing from the very low and from the mid range (have not tested for higher rpms, its a new engine;D).. the lower compression ratio can be easly noticed.

next week will go to the guy to talk about a marelli computer (cosworth), if he is able to install, will buy it.

Guys, my main question, do you recommend oil coolers like you can buy at www.focussport.com ?? RS uses nearly the same. To make a real air-oil cooler, would cost about 4-500 usd... or i will do all the best, but please send me some money for xmas;D

The oilcooler is a must. I cannot exclude from the setup. I will go for the one which is on www.focussport.com. But not because to get closer to RS. The engine setup wont be the same.

Do you know this focussport.com? how fast do they usually ship out?

the downpipe??? or the actual Turbo manifold?? I assume you mean the manifold. I have heard that a shorty header can be modified to mount one, but a cutom one built IS gonna cost some $$, unless you make one yourself......then it's way cheaper.... that's one of those things that cost a good bit to buy. ebay maybe??

No, this is Würth, this spray is to clean brakes but it's perfect to clean any metal from dust, oil, grease etc.
