Subject: Re: fitting an intercooler (9K LPT)

Hi Andy, I've done ths and yes I did notice the improvement, but I also got used to it very quickly. As far as problems go, my insurance company now takes another 50 quid from me :-( You will need an extra bracket on the right hand side (looking from the front to the back). Make sure that you get the right aluminium pipe that goes between the intercooler and the throttle housing, if you've got the trionic ECU (I think you have) then you need a tube with a fitting for the air temperature sensor. Also if you have an automatic then this tube must have a nipple for the pipe that goes to the gearbox. You also need a fair collection of rubber hoses and Jubilee clips etc. Don't know about fitting extra gauges, sorry.
