    Which intercooler should i get?

    I have a coupe turbo with VXR turbo, k&n filter, Pre-cat , sports cat & full powerflow exhaust.

    Which intercooloer would give the best performance?

    EDS Side or universal front mounted intercooler?

    Both im looking at are the same price, but understand that the front mount would need modification to my coupe bumper as i want to keep my fogs, but the smic looks as though it will have restricted airflow.

    Thanks for any help.

    they both have good and bad points

    the side mount is easyer to fit as its just a bolt off bolt on item plus its been designed for the car its going on, however the airflow over it is not as good as a fmic

    the universal one is not as easy to fit but its not hard have to move the rad or fan back a bit, its universal so not designed around the car its going on but its front mounted so gets more airflow

    Where can you get that EDS SMIC for that price? There 700 euros on the EDS.de website.
