  • fitting txa intercooler

    Anyone fitted this themselves? and if so how easy/difficult was it?, how long did it take?, did you jack the front end of the car up? and what difficulties, if any, did you encounter while fitting?

    Cheers

            If you look on the forge website it tells you step by step with pics. I used that to fix my washer bottle

              am definitely gonna fit to avoid any extra costs, as long as the instructions tell me how to remove the bumper it should be fine.

                i didnt jack up the car, bumper camp off with a little bit of elbow grease, really straight forward fitting, providing you know where things go, need to take the crash guard off to be perfectly honest just to get aircon fan out ect. and then the hardest bit if im honest was mounting the cooler. Will take you a few hours just dont rush it. Forge have a fitting guide for their cooler on their website, i used this as a basis.

                          oo little far for me to come help :P but in my advice if you are not sure even with the instructions get someone to give you a hand. You should be fine if you are mechanically minded. and yes look at the link above, i found it useful. bare in mind it will be slightly different as you have TX cooler not forge
