    The standard intercooler is sandwiched, replacing it with a front mounted intercooler will see gains if you are tuning but not in an otherwise standard car.

    Has that got anything to do with the plastic shield just behind the upper radiator grill?. I've not had the bumper off yet on the facelift model so was surprised to see it when I looked through the grill. Why is it there?.

    That's not actually the intercooler, the one you can see through the front is the air-con condenser. Behind that is the intercooler, then the radiator. That's what Nutron means when he says it's sandwiched in.

    Evidence on here suggests that unless you are doing serious tuning, then any gains from changing the intercooler, or even front-mounting it will be minimal.
