      Not many of us have 3.2's unfortunately. Hopefully one of them can chime in and help out

      Driver side is the factory one, correct?

      I need to find and buy one for my air-to-water intercooling ASAP.

      Thought you were going no heat exchanger?

      Decided against it after a long discussion with my EVO people. In a nutshell, with my somewhat small core-to-tank size the system would be good only for a few passes before heatsoaking and needing to be drained and refilled with cold water. For that initial idea to have practicality in my racing environment, I would have to carry too much volume to make it work (someone ran the numbers).

      The revised idea is to have at least a small radiator that will keep the temperature where I need it for the duration of one racing session.

      Prerty much have to be specific as to what you want to see. General engine compartment shots, or advise specific areas to snap.

      Remember, we have 3.2's and don't need to work on our cars much.

      I borrowed pic, but these spots are still mystery. Etka says this connection (circle) is 1J0 121 087 K and R32 uses 1J0 121 087 J but needed to buy hole hose. Etka doent know 1J0 121 087 J part. I have seen 2 different sets on this audi tt on that part and really interested if this is 087K-part.
      It would be really nice to know rad`s mounting points and if golf even have those. Also how the hoses goes to rad( arrows). I also wondering maybe R´s radator is same as tt have but just frame is different and makes it on driveside position...
      I have ordered radiators frame, hoses. But mounting points is still mystery. This small rad is really expensive over 300€ on here, so that im interested if i can flip R`s radiator

      As per above picture, there is also a power steering cooler at the front.

      The RHD R32 does not have any cooler fitted at all.

      The cooler above is fitted to both Left and Right Hand Drive TT's with the same pipes out that side.

      I would be interested in a couple of shots of where this mounts exactly at the front and also where the connecting pipes run along the chassis rail/engine/reservoir if possible.

      I am pretty sure I could add this into my power steering fliud circuit from the end of the rack on my RHD - the return line comes from the right (LHD Passenger side ) end of the rack.

      A few cars have had power steering issues here in Australia from the heat.

      The second radiator is a brilliant idea too.

      Thanks, maybe my first and last good idea

      If you want to compare, here is pic on steering fluid cooler on R (return lines):

      Unfortunately that wont work on mine as the inlet for the LHD R32 cooler is is on the gearbox side.

      This is the TT set up:



      The #8 and #9 parts are the same for Left and Right Hand drive

      #4 is the RHD only return line part to the same common cooler.

      So this would join up my rack very nicely if it all fits.

      #3 is the LHD only part coming from the other end of the rack.
