Good job on the front mounted intercooler, that must have been a task and a half to fit due to being of the universal flavour. Was this the absolute closes you could it up against the water rad / air-con rad? Just asking because the consequence is that it sticks out from the bumper quite a bit, as does the pipes either side.

Have you noticed even a slight gain in performance? And I was just wondering also, what's going on with your MAP sensor fitting?! Guess it's hard to decide on how to fit that but I'd be concerned that it's got lots of potential to loose boost. I think others have had a fitting welded to a stainless piece of pipe so that you have something to screw in to, plus the rubber seal would seal to the round hole in the centre of the fitting.

cheers guys, i got the fmc closest i could to the radiator , its actually up against the plastic that surrounds it which i had to cut to bits to gain an extra 15 mm i think i got, also i had to turn the fmc the other way around so i could get the pipes to fit.

as for performance it piks up alot better,

i think av done a good job considering how tight it is

use some aluminium spacers or anything about an inch long and space that radiator back!!

then you'll gain all the room you'll need
