    thinking out loud here

    i know there are plenty of people that have fitted front mount intercoolers to their cars. has anyone attempted to fit something from a different car and mod it to fit?

    just thinking that maybe something from another car could do the job of a more expensive kit for a fraction of the price.

    its not the cooler thats expensive its the pipework, so what ever cooler you use you will still incur the cost of it.

    has anyone ever used the intercooler of the frontera on a astra turbo?

    was thinking frontera cooler. i know that was a mod that folk used to do on the cav turbos.

    either that or vivaro vans have a decent size of cooler on them as well, could be worth looking into.
