Sorry to be a n00b but I've read the big Intercooler thread and still don't quite understand the benefit of getting an aftermarket one... does it allow higher boost pressure? Does it increase economy? Both?
If economy gains can be on the order of 1 litre / 100km then I'm interested for $500.
mookers, check out my thread in member's ride, in there i have pretty much logged all the mods I've done so far.. and to quickly answer your question.. YES fuel economy gets better as well as the performance..
Kevin, I dont think you'd wanna use a hard pipe on your radiator.. just use silicon based hose or a tougher one..
I have actually purchased a set of the intercooler piping today in Hong Kong . as I was desperate for piping, but I am still chatting with the guy in sydney. so leave it with me and I'll see what I can tee up.
