    Hmmmm. Waste of money IMO.

    I would guess you don't have overheating problems at the moment, so why fix a problem you haven't got?

    hmmmm...it is a fact that they might look similar but they dont do the same job mate!
    intercooler is to cool the air that goes from the turbo back into the engine again...the radiator is to cool the water/engine temp.
    as said by our mates upthere... it is a waste of time and money.
    Intercooler will be a nice mod

    Indeed, big difference there. Have a read through this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercooler as there is some good info there.

    An FMIC is a good mod for turbo cars as it helps sustain the power made by the turbo for longer, as it keeps the air cooler.
