    what & who are best to go for......engine upgrades

    i'm lookin to buy the CSS2 in a month or 2 however i plan on changing the side mounted intercooler from the deal for a lower front mounted inter-cooler..

    is this a good decision...will it be worth while?

    hi m8! i've spoke to courtenay sport about this just before christmas they strongly advice uprated intercooler on any remap! they say with stage 1, milkek cat back, front de-cat and large side mount intercooler expect around 240-250 bhp! don't quote me on it! I've slept since then! but around them figs!

    lol sweet ,cheers mate ,i'm definately gonna change the intercooler but on the CSS2 they offer the sidemounted one but i'm gonna ask how much extra it would be to have the lower one fitted instead..i've got a zuast system fitted which is fine,

    the only other thing i thought about was havin them chip it aswell but not sure if thats worth doin aswell as havin the CSS2 fitted..

    Just before anything gets said - ALL tuners offer their own products which have all been proven to work - therefore the choice is yours.
