    Hi

    I've found a front mount intercooler in my price range eventually.

    The intercooler is 2" (i assume thats how thick it is)according to the advert. Will this be of for my AUM that will eventually be around 250bhp?

    Cheers

    I should imagine 2 inch to be the pipe diameter

    The advert only says Golf GTi 1.8t FMIC 2"

    But it is brand new and a verryyyyy good price

    Cracking, cheers for the help. Looks a decent bit of kit for less than £100, just wanted to make sure it would be ok.

    Is there any way you can get them to fir without losing the grills and foglights?

    Is it right that the "budget FMIC kits" dont come with a take off for the DV and the N75?

    Have you checked out the big intercooler thread? I know the thread is a bit of a mess now but if you look through there is a lot of good info. That small cooler should fit fine without any problems with fogs and grill if it has 51mm pipework too.

    Do you have the link to the thread mate? I have used the search function.

    Ive just emailed the seller to see if he can take pics of the pipework as some of the "budget" kits dont come with a take off for the N75 and DV.

    Hmmmmmm

    No point fitting a wellycooler on a K03s, especially when you will need meth to get anywhere near 250 anyway.

    Best bet is to use that smaller kit to keep the pressure drop minimal.

    You'll need a Forge MAP sensor pipe, and to make a take off with chemical metal.

    Look at the FAQ in the top of the 8L forum, Prawn has a guide for fitting these which will answer ANY questions you have.
