well i've been a busy boy since that intercooler kit on ebay sold for Ł600+ second hand.
the first prototype has been fitted but i have had to loose the fogs and side grills. looks pretty good an works well, no more LAG than standard SMIC yet intercooler core has a larger surface and internal capacity.
I have also had to cut 5mm from the bumper to allow a gap between core and aircon rad.
pipework has been done in 63mm piping which is the same as standard pipework.
total cost in man hours and parts Ł265.
what i proposing to do is if anyone is interested at this point is for Ł350 you would get..
INTERCOOLER CORE 450x230x70 63mm inlets
ALL CORE MOUNTING PARTS
BUMPER BAR (cut) exchanged for your current BUMPER BAR. or extra Ł45 if no exchange.
ALL SILICON HOSES (USUAL COLOUR CHOICES)
ALL THE HEAVY DUTY JUBILEE CLIPS
FULL FITTING INSTRUCTIONS
A couple more pictures...
the green tape is only colour i had at the time to mount external thermostat
behind my RS4 bumper which i have fully repaired and removed headlight washers and number plate recess..
If anyone is interested no let me know!
or you can wait and i'm going to get the side pipes all made in alloy piping
bigger cores are also available for extra charge.
