    a m8 of mine has fitted a vxr i/c to his gsi, and he spoke to courtenays and the vxr i/c can take a suprisingly high bhp

    good stuff cause the guy still has the set up sitting there... so it could be poss for me to just fit the rad, aircon, fans and intercooler right out a vxr and into the coupe?

    if so i would be over the bloody moon

    and also have a FMIC up for sale! lol

    around 400bhp and he knows the vxr i/c is capable of it, thats before someone tries to shoot it down
    as said the vxr i/c is a very gd i/c, its better than a lot of ppl think

    Neil has one fitted to his GSI (It was in TV recently), I'm sure he will post in this thread at some point. He removed his aircon though.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
