    Angry Blown Intercooler!!

    Guys i really need some help i've blown the intercooler on my 1.9 cdti its 04 and only done 47,000 the intercooler is now oval at the top instead of flat!? I've heard a rumour its a manufacturing fault but as i rang vauxhall they said they 'know nothin' the only recalls are to check the alternator!? does any1 know if the intercooler blowin is a common prob and can be fixed under warranty or not? HELP!!

    front mounted intercooler
    its not hard to do

    you can fit the intercooler to the vauxhall piping and it fits behind your front bumper

    ike this for an upgrade

    this is the one you want http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Deep-Core-450-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Have a look at plasma's thread on a FMIC that Mark (GSi3.2) did. Fitted in perfectly behind a pre-facelift bumper with no hacking away of any parts, and the pipework was very neat too.

    Not sure m8, you'll need to ask Plasma - maybe send him a PM.
