The mk2/2.5 can use st intercoolers. I use a small direnza one as it was cheap and I don't want loads of turbo lag. Will see in a few weeks when my car gets remapped to how well it performs. If I have/can go bigger without much turbo lag I would go for an airtec gen2 intercooler.

The standard st intercooler is basically the same, so not worth going for. An uprated (aftermarket) st intercooler is what you should look at. All the mounting points and hoses are in the same place, so it's an easy upgrade.

It's bigger than the one I've got. You would have to get a remap that takes into account the intercooler.
