The intercooler on my vectra 150 cdti has swollen to the point were it has burst at the top and bottom !!
I noticed it was leaking recently as i could hear it whistling! When i checked it has split along the top and both the top and bottom rows of the intercooler have doubled in size.. Just wondered why this has happened??
The car has been remapped in the past and is running over standard power but i dont know by how much! I have had it suggested that the increased power might have caused this to happen tho i cant see how as it aint that powerfull me thinks!!!
Could this be the actually cause of the damage or is there another likely cause known to do this??
Im thinking it must be caused by some kindof pressure biuld up but im not sure how this is happening!!
Cheers for any ideas! Dont really want to go buy another standard intercooler if its ganna be bent out of shape again ..
