    rolleyes Silly "newbie" question time

    Where the hell is the intercooler mounted on a 56 plate 120 SRi? Is it a side mount?

    Only reason i'm asking is that if its a side mount, how does the cool air get into it as both the "vents" where the spotlights sit are covered

    Also, if its a side mount, would the intercooler benifit a "vent" in the inner wheel arch to allow the "hot" air to pass out? Ran this mod on my 200bhp vRS Fabia and it seemed to lower the intercooler temps and let the car boost easier.


    Just a thought guys
