    I have one with a coupe bumper, you dont need to cut the bumper, it just fits.

    However, you do need to mount the rad at an angle to fit it all in. Not sure if it coes with the brackets to move the rad or if you need it as as eperate kit as the cooler was on the car when i got it.

    It's only the coupe one that needs cutting - GSi's and SRi turbo's don't need it.

    And the coupe's don't need much cutting really - I think it's just the back of the lower grille slightly.

    True, but not a big job really - I did mine in about 15 minutes with a decent hacksaw and a drill!

    Cheaper yes, the same certainly not.

    If you want to save money and are happy to DIY then the group buy is a great deal, however if you want the best option then consider buying a customer made kit.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    yes i know that the CS one will be better but at 3 times the price
    me i was looking at getting some made up by http://www.allisport.com/
    but the price would be about the same asthe CS one unless i had 10 sets made up

    I would rather pay the extra to have shorter pipe runs with the courtenay unit.... Longer the pipes the more lag

    if you want a better intercooler go to www.allisport.com they will mate a better one ito your own spec
    me i would fit smaller fans an make it core bigger an move the end caps around abit

    if you want the best get one custom made as the ones CS sell are very good but could be better all down to what you know at the end of the day me at work we have a guy that only dose rads intercoolers so i just ask him for a hand
