    three intercoolers or one

    hi all
    ryt just a question about my intercoolers

    iv got a front mount intercooler and when fitting i kept my smic's
    so iv got three now

    is having three intercoolers going to be a down side or a good thing
    qnd what will it affect if i should not have three running at once

    is this the answer to my fault pressure drop between dv and throtle body

    tar

    There will be a slightly increased pressure drop, how much will depend entirely on how much your flowing thru them.

    I wouldnt have thaught it would have given any fault codes though. If you've got a barry valve get rid of it before trying anything else.

    yes i am with 0 problems and gets the temps down super quick on boost, the FMIC was very slender and has roughley the same capacity as the large pipe that joins the 2 smic,s

    Was he bent over talking out his arse at the time? That won't cause running issues. Any pressure drops would be very small.
