    Sounds very good indeed. Hopefully there will be similar exciting joint ventures for the Vectra.

              Sounds a lot until you see what the kit comprises of and how big the cooler is! I've seen the full kit at Billing at the weekend even includes new front fan and laser cut alloy cowl assembly.
              The price is comparable with the big intercooler kits offered for Golf's and Audi's

                      Hi the Interccooler is fairly straight forward to fit, we have designed it so that the body work does not have to be cut, no major componants have to be moved as this would have had big implication to the manufacturers warrenty, whilst air con will not have to be discharged then regassed.
                      I would always recomend the exhaust first, as it helps the car breath especially when a remap is added. After this a map then intercooler... or even Inercooler and map :P

                      Yes it is big, It is actually only 4 rows shorter than then uprated RS500 Cosworth intercooler.

                        are there any comparison of temp in/out with and without the intercooler?

                        also how many litres is it?
