    Intercooler Pipe Corroded

    Hi,

    Has anyone else got a similiar issue - or had one - done a search but couldn't find anything.

    When looking down the front of the engine - between the airbox/engine/radiator there is a T-Piece which I believe are Intercooler pipe.

    One part of it is metal and mine is terribly corroded....looking at replacing it looks a RIGHT pig, as the pipe is welded on to the mainframe I think...

    anyone else had to replace this or got one corroding?

    What would be the impact if there was air getting in at this point?

    Id imagine if you had a hole in the intercooler pipe work then youd notice a distinct performance reduction and youd probably here a fair bit of high pitched noise when pushing it hard.

    When I had a FMIC running on my Punto GT one of the jubilee clips wasnt quite tight enough and it whistled and drove like a dog.

    Hmmm no problem with performance but have ALWAYS had a bad starting issue with quite a bit of smoke and it smokes heavily on take off - but it is remapped.

    Just wandered if anyone else was experiencing a problem with the pipes down by the left hand side of the engine being corroded at all.
