    Intercooler Fan Fitting

    What Fan should i get for use with my universal intercooler (where can i buy it? Will it cause the EML to come on?) , i don't want to loose my Air Con in summer - recieved my 2.5" (63mm) piping today. Will i need to cut my GSI bumper? move the radiator back? i found a thread about a month ago- did a search but can't find it- it had a diagram of all pipes required!

    help much appreciated

    Your 63mm silicon hoses will clamp down fine on those outlets as thats what I have.

    Use the wider hose clips too
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
