    Intercooler?

    I was told by mate who also has a sri turbo that when i get my front mount its not just a matter of bolting it on and driving away? is this true?
    And what else do i need to make it run propa?

    Thanks chris.

    Its a little harder to fit a front mount than just boltin it on.... It can be done though!! But yes you can just bolt it on and drive away. The car will just work as normal with more power. It will just start to fuel itself like it was running in winter.....

    I was talking to your mate about this the other night with the Black
    Sri Turbo
    you can just bold up the intercooler with some new pipe work mate
    an get a remap latter when you have the Cash
    it will pull a bit harder with out a remap

    MAP sensor holder is easy, just buy a VXR solid pipe which goes between the IC and top hat. Note that you can only buy this with a new sensor though - so you will end up with a spare - which is no bad thing as I have replaced mine 2 time since owning my car. They are about £55.

    The Courtenay IC is pretty easy to fit if you are fiarly competant. The hardest part is cutting away small sections metal on the front cross member. I think it comes with good instructions too. This also seems to give the best performance out of all the off the self ICs for the Z20LET from what I know.

    just checking. But can you fit the courteny front mount in behind the bumper without having to remove the black honeycomb on the bottom half of the bumper?

    Not sure on the SRi turbo tbh. On the Coupe to do need to trim a little off the bumper/trim - but it fits under the GSi bumper.
