    I don't mean to be rude here, but discount aside, I bet you're still paying more than the total cost of a Toyosports setup, and you'll get a product that doesn't work as well.....

    You'd have to be getting well over 50% off to make the costs comparable, and even then the forge cooler isn't really man enough.

    I think you're making a mistake there dude....

    I concur and have already said as much earlier in this thread... I don't believe this size of FMIC to be suitable for a hybrid... and that based on personal experience rather than conjecture

    I fairness I think the Forge uses more rows than the AH V1 which could mean flow wise the Forge should cope better but it still has 51mm inlets which is a compromise as I know 63mm bends can be welded on in place...

    So a modified forge cooler might flow better?,i know a few people that work there,might be able to get them to modify it rather than re fabricate it somewhere else.

    Im sure a few people have managed to fit a welly cooler without having it on display well?
    I think its a case of mounting the cooler as far back as possible and routing the pipes in a tidy way.
    easier said than done though

    I'm sure someone on here mounted a big welly style cooler upside down?

    With the pipes dropping down from the top?

    I think karl wants to know how you managed to cut off a 76mm pipe and weld in a 63mm one.

    I'd imagine it's just clever welding isn't it? 76mm OD pipe cut off should leave a 74mm hole, which leaves a 5mm gap all round to bridge? Or flare the end of teh 63mm pipe to suit.

    its cut on the slant.. the 63mm bit, so aligned top and bottom, and a little tap on the sidetanks moved them in a little, and the rest was some welding magic :)
