    intercooler and cams fitted

    Over the last week the car has been at AAS in newcastle for the pipe work to be made for my universal intercooler and while it was there thy kindly said they would fit the 285 piper cams i have had laying around for the past year and a half.

    Piper seem to believe that these cams should be run with uprated injectors but i can prove they can run fine with standard injectors!

    The car pulls so much stronger all the way around the rev range. Tick over has not been affected either unlike you get with the regal cams etc.
    The car s been RR'd next month so will post up the results after that.


    A few pics of the intercooler fitted............

    Cams...why do I now want some after being in FS3.5 last night? Something about uprated cams making engines sound and go that bit nicer

    Tidy job on the IC, whole car must be a different beast now with the engine changes and the lowering!

    Looking good!

    I just read your car mod diary and was wondering what work you had done to the head?

    Thats happening this winter come time, to something very simular to the standard stuff.

    nry - oh yes mate it has transformed the car, so much more enjoyable

    ClarkySri-T - the valve stem oil seal were passing so they were replaced, everything was checked out and the head was gasflowed just because it was off and now 28 piper cams

    Nice one mate!

    Stew and the boys @ A.A.S really do look after you don't they? and always a top job to boot!

    I'm going to them when I have the cash to have my exhaust made, they're also going to do a couple of other things for me too including a custom shiny intercooler to throttle body pipe and a temperature sender adaptor so I can fit my gauge!
