    Talking New mod

    Hi guys, i recently done a few new mods to my car and have a few bits to do this weekend but the one im talking abut is a big intercooler! I actually installed it 2 weeks ago but had some problems with some of the pipework but now is all resolved and im very happy with it. Its not made a huge diference but is definately a lot smoother driving. Pics at the weekend

    Can't wait to see the result. Been thinking about an intercooler recently. Might wait to see if I can get a better turbo or a hybrid.
    Do you mean smoother when you put your foot to the floor? How much power is gained from an intercooler?

    Smoother driving when flooring it or not, its just made the car a bit more pleasant to cruise in

    I put in a second front mounted intercooler which was effectivly like putting in an intercooler twice the size but with better cooling because it passes through twice. I saw about 7 bhp gains on the rollers and that's probably because it was so heavily tuned. I doubt I'd see any gains now with the water methanol in place. It did look nice with the FMIC though.
