          the intercooler is just air, the turbo spins up and pushes air through the intercooler where its cooled which reduces the inlet temp. Sure someone will give a better explanation but thats it ruffly

                        no, oil. i can see with how the water is settled on it. and its a very oily looking colour. its not from mine though, ive had a check. its quite funny though, its collected in the corner of the skirts, looks like the car needs a shave!

                              you're into your diy arnt you.

                              good job you asked aswell, otherwise you might have taken the intercooler off and stuck another radiator on!
