    My New Intercooler

    just got mine from allard sport it is on ebay number 8047188163.. cost 104.00 pound moving the inlet pipe to the side though.... the extra pipe work was 17.00 silcone hose from turbo to intercooler. Pipe being made from outlet upto the top of radiator by topgear basinbstoke. Then i am going to use the pipe from vxr to the plenum chamber as this has the sensor built in half way along it. all in price 250.00 poung a bargain i think.

    very sensible

    but... is it bar and plate? and the volume of it is the same size as the original more or less. guess it would be in a better place for airflow though

    bar and plate are the best ones

    the volume is= 600 x 160 x 55 mm = 5280000mm cubed or 5.2 litres cubed. the pace or courtenay ones are around 9 litres.

    still its an improvement, is in a better place and depends what your going to be running of you need a bigger one
