    will someone please measure the core size of the forge front mount.
    after that forge kit on ebay went for over £600 i'm going to make my own kit.
    but i'm stuck on which core size to use.
    if the core is too big they will be more lag, if the core is too small then cooling will be insufficient.
    the standard intercoolers have a total core size of 5600ccm i'm looking at a core size of 450x230x65 which should work out at 6727ccm.
    I believe this should be big enough and will be easy to hide behind the bumper and no cutting of the bumper bar.

    So far all the parts i have decided on using will total £240.
    getting everything to fit is the next part.
