Christmas eve, POP!!! big flash from the front of the bonnet and intercooler drivers side has blown its lid right off??? limped the car to my bros,removed cooler and tried a roadside rebuild...lasted 2/3 miles:-( so i know im in for a bill for a new cooler but i dont know why this would happen??? can anyone offer any advise please??? broken wastegate/dump valve??? over boost problem??? or matbe as i suspect, inferiour part??? many thanks in advance, im sure youll all be helping me loads in the future. Matt.
