    Intercooler

    Happy birthday scooty

    Just been looking at your pictures and noticed you had a pace intercooler fitted.
    I have one on my car, But I have the pace power pipe as well.
    But I am not really happy with the pipe it is a lot smaller in diameter than the one supplied by Regal and were they have welded all the small pieces of pipe together the weld has run into the pipe making it smaller.
    Is that a regal power pipe on your car if so how did you get it to fit, did you cut of one end to make it shorter.
    Havenít been out in the car yet as itís still having body work done on ití is there much difference in performance.

    Thanks for any help

    Awwww thanks Mat/guys.

    The powerpipe is the Regal one (originally) - and it is a tight squeeze, but if you twist the top charge feed pipe (Pace) while you are fitting it, you can get it to fit ok.

    Shev's has the Pace powerpipe, which is a smaller diameter. Not sure whether smaller diameter would equate to higher pressure, or a larger diameter is better for more air mass??

    Performace wise, the car pulls much better especially in 3rd/4th/5th, whereas the engine used to struggle a bit in the mid/higher gears.

    Won't see the true benefits of it though until the re-map.
