So how much would the kit be all up?
It is only $299 for the Intercooler piping, how about for the radiator?

Hi Brent,

what size would the cooler be? Is it a guaranteed fit without cutting the impact beam?

Will it be under $500 delivered?

If so then I'm keen

thanks

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.

yes economy, increased boost levels as soft pipe is removed.

overall can increase power and effienceny depending on how u drive...

i am very interested in the piping....but not the intercooler I picked up a 600x300x75 with 2.5inch tubes for a good price so I am just interested in hard piping and radiator hard piping....

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..

So just how much better is the hard pipes vs after-market silicon hoses?

ok cool

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.

Cheers,
Brent
