    Intercooler

    URGENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looking at getting vxr intercooler, will this improve performance on my MK5 turbo or not!!

    have done the airbox and vxr intake mod, along with new K&N panel air filter, will this also make a difference!!!

    thanks in advance!!!

    There is no need to bump a thread that is only 40 mins old!!!

    I would expect you to get some gains from fitting the vxr intercooler as it is front mounted as opposed to side mounted and therefore will lower the intake temp, but im not a turbo boy but im sure someone will be along shortly to explain more in depth......just give them more than 40 minutes

    If you do a search on intercoolers on here then you will find a mountain of information on how they work and how they will improve performance etc.

    The reason you probably didn't get a quick answer is because most people are working at this time and dont abuse the internet like i do

    I was under the impression that it was a side mounted intercooler on the 170bhp model and a front mounted one on the vxr.

    if you say it has then would have to take word for it. mine is the 170bhp model, so assume it must be there.
