side mount will do fine
whenever you aren't making boost, the air out of the turbo is pretty much outside air temp
meaning, if you're just doing infrequent pulls it will have time to cool between them.

IMO he could probably get away with an upgraded SMIC if he was running a stock or even a VNT-17 that's tuned, but when running a turbo that's a 17/22 or bigger than I would recommend going with a FMIC.

I know that running a larger turbo isn't going to have as high of EGTs, but it's better to have a larger intercooler on a car that is going to be making 220 hp. There's a reason why certain size ICs have a hp rating...meaning it can only flow a certain amount of air and cool it as it goes through.

If you haven't made your decision yet, then either piece together a FMIC or bite the bullet and buy one, because what was the point in spending all that money on a larger turbo, bigger injectors, and a tune to let the ECU control all the new upgrades.

Otherwise everytime you wanna push your car you're going to have to worry about heat soak

Eh, I was running a stock side mount as the low pressure IC with a 46/58 compressor and 52/46 turbine feeding it only 16 PSI, the HP turbo did surge a bit earlier than it should've, so maybe it was a significant enough restriction to bump that down a couple PSI.
You'd see a lot better flow through the intercooler with it seeing full intake manifold pressure though.

Current setup's going together with a 60/86 compressor feeding the same junk stock side mount, but I won't claim it's a good idea.

Mkiv golf and Jetta are extremely close, so yes it should.

At the top of all the threads you found this thread on. Left top corner is the tab to make a new thread. I my experience mk4 golf and Jetta are about 95% the same. Most differences are body and interior pieces. For that matter there are a ton of Audi TT components that will interchange also. They might not be the same but will bolt onto one another. Little research and you wonít believe the compatablilty of those cars.

I havn't done one yet. But I think I will use the kit above on ebay. Seems everyone sells the same intercooler anyways. I would really prefer same side in and out and thats what im holding back on for now. I cant make up my mind.

Same side in and out is the only way to go IMO. It makes plumbing for that intercooler sooo much easier that going with an intercooler with opposite sides for in and out.
Good luck and keep us posted on how it goes with the install.

Your stock BEW intake manifold will work. You just need to buy a race pipe to connect the silicon elbow to.
Like so: https://www.darksidedevelopments.co....pipe-51mm.html

You could always keep your factory setup and just delete the EGR with these parts.

Good Luck
