    yeh,but it's running at it's limit now,chris said its not the intercooler itself its the pipework (too small)so it start's getting a bit hot after 5400 rpm..but it's fine for the road.

    good stuff mate. been thinking about the underdrive pulley but wasnt sure if it was worth it? seems like the 3 inch exhaust was a good purchase

    oh yeh well pleased with the piper!! ohh and she does pop!!!makes me wonder what she'd make with the cam,inlet mani and better intercooler?thing is i have a 16 row oil cooler where the front mount intercooler would go,chris said he could cut the intercooler pipes off and weld bigger outlets on (re powdercoat it)and fit bigger hoses tho so i might do that?not sure yet.
