    Hi

    In answer to your question, yes.... its very worthwhile fitting a front mount intercooler (FMIC)... and while you are getting acquainted to the search facility, have a look at this thread from the stickies posted at the top of this very section of the forum...

    When you are done with that you may want to read this one too

    Enjoy and welcome to the forum... we are a friendly bunch... honest

    Hi tuffy just a quick question i know u will know the answer 2 lol. I fitted a fmic a few months ago, the car already had stage 2 mapping on it due to the previous owner getting it done. Would it be worth getting the stage 2 mapping re-done with there now being a fmic fitted?

    Thanks in-advance

    Live mapping would be my suggestion, purely to make use of the modifications you are making to the car.

    edit - chuckled at Tuffty's second link.

    I really fancy a FMIC but not the cost of the forge kit. Really dont fancy trying to fit a custom one either, any budding volunteer mechanics on here fit such a thing for a few quid

    Still unsure on whether I will mod my car, but if I do I will do it myself - worth the knowledge gained and the saving on money side of things.

    There are lots of guides on here Chris, and I know if you did have any issues, Bill, Welly, Tuffty and any other will help as best they can.

    Should be able to... can't remember the details of what can be done with a stage 2 Revo but sure you can get it tweaked to take advantage of the FMIC
