    I read somewhere on the "net" that when the forge and airtec coolers got tested back to back with each other that the forge intercooler had cooler air temperatures going into the engine than the airtec intercooler did.

    They have the same engines temperatures when you are at stage 2 or 3, but when you go above stage 3, the Airtec has lower engine temperatures. I have 415 bhp corsa and we have 5 °C temperature rise, at forge at this stage you can get 30°C or more then ambient temperature.

    I went with airtec for mine, still waiting on it being delivered. I'm only going stage 3 but as AljazK said, I've seen airtec used on some pretty mad power VXRs and they seem to have no issues.

    I've got all the parts fitted to my car ready to go stage 3 except for the injectors that would need fitting at the same time as the remap but have been sidetracked lately as I'm converting the single pipe over to a cobra twin exhaust, got the exhaust, diffuser and bumper mounting bracket here all ready to be fitted once I get time.

    Hope that helps.
    Where can I buy this mate?

    Use this plus the "torque" app if you have android.

    If you have an iphone there will be a similar app...an apple freak will confirm tho.
