    Front Mount Intercooler on Coupe

    I know this has been covered a load of times but i would like to fit this to my car, I think zafgsi has this one on his zafira also but what is the correct pipework I need? can I leave the o,e boost pipe on the drivers side and just cut it to size for the intercooler and then buy new ones with the vxr map sensor pipe for the passanger side of the car. Cheers

    this is the link

    not sure john, but the pipework on ours isnt 64mm so it wont fit onto the cooler. the link shows for scarlet and not an astra! might fit? when you say drivers side pipe, do you mean the one from the turbo to the ic! if so then yeah just cut it to suit! dont the coupe need there bumpers cutting out to fit a fmic? its a real easy job to fit one if you have everything to fit! have you seen the kits on ebay that come with all the pipework? think they are about £350 all in. it would take about an hour to fit!

    I know it says a starlet but its the measurements of the intercooler which would be perfect to go behind my bumper, I see what you mean about the oulets it looks like I need 57mm not 64mm I need zafgsi to post up on what he has fit on his I think.

    Ive got 63mm pipe work but the lugs on the FMIC are 57mm, so i just tightened a 63mm connector to the lugs. I hope this helps?

    Thats great thanks for that, its that size which should fit perfect behind the coupe bumper without to much stress. So what pipe work did you buy to hook it all together ie 90 bends and joiners?
