    Very minor changes on the inside of the bumper.... all looks standard once fitted on ...will post more pics ...

    Next is a big turbo upgrade:eyebrows: which will include a new exhaust as well

    what exactly did you have to do to the bumper to get it to fit? do the fogs fit back in ok? im going to go the route of making my own i think! did you have to cut the crash bar much?

    cheers Dan

    Will that actually aid boost cooling that much without? Just thought that the larger size would be giving you more lag issues?

    Hi

    There slightly more lag but nothing that phases me when compared to the original setup. Will post the measurements. Iam in South africa ...had a friend of mine make up the cooler.... the logs have shown a good improvement over the stock setup... i will get the figures and post soon...I already noticed that my car does not feel slower in the heat that we experience... normally on a day that is 30 degrees celcius i would feel a the car not boosting to its full potential ... over the weekend the car was going consistently even at temperatures of around 33 degrees celcius.

    I am extremely pleased with the results.
