    If a bit flush tho you could fit a better looking one and open up your lower grill

    As said they are all the same so no real point on a diesel remapped or not tbh. IIRC chrisgettings fitted an additional intercooler and lost power - could be wrong though.

    The in and out on that one is too big, ideally you want 2.5" not 3". i would disagree that it doesnt make a difference you if you do it properly your going to relocate the intercooler to the front grill and remove it from the heat sandwich. I have done mine and although no big power gains from it, i would still say it was worth doing

    thats fine, you done want the core any bigger than the grill, measure your font bumper grill and look for that size but 3/3.5" thick
