    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default Plasma's FMIC fitment at the GSi Workshops

    Well the day started off with me arriving at the GSi Workshops about 9ish and we popped into my favourite Maccy D's where we had a spot of brekkie.

    Back to the workshops and the previous nights work was bolted up and removed from the inside of the workshop. Into the workshop with my car with the front bumper having been removed whilst I was waiting outside.



    Mark set to work by offering up the intercooler against the crashbar to find the centre and to see how we would physically fit it. It was decided to fit it behind the crashbar so it sat back from the front of the bumper but it needed a couple of brackets TIG'd to it to mount it from.



    Having mounted the intercooler where we wanted it the original intercooler was removed and the aircon rad pushed gently back to take up its space.



    The radiator mounting were put back in place and everything was checked for a nice secure fit. As you can see once Mark gets started he swings the ratchet like a man possesed! You can see the 2 original intercooler hoses which were slightly trimmed and modified to fit onto 2 custom made coupler/reducers.




    Intercooler pipes all joined and connected together



    Picture showing how much room is still left!



    Looking down you can just about make the intercooler out.



    A look through the grill to the left



    A look through the grill to the right



    And how it looks face on.



    I'm over the moon with how it looks and fits. And as for the driving I think it pulls more consistantly than it did before, but more driving will be able to let me get a better feel for it.

    I'd like to thank the technical director Mr Gsi for his hardwork and ingeniuity (sp?) and for letting me bring it down there in the first place!!. Thanks also to Duncan for changing my discs whilst the intercooler was being fitted..

    All in all I'm extremely happy with the outcome

    my god....FMIC's seem to be all the rage at the moment!

    looks like a very impressive install - but then i wouldn't expect anything different from the vectra-c technical director!
