  • Lets talk about: Intercoolers.

    I'm currently on stage 2 on the 'Burg, after reading around a fair few threads on here and generally other car forums it would appear the Astra with stage 2 is running quite high inlet temps so I'm going to ask your opinion on intercoolers.

    I'm running Thorney stage 2 but their intercooler is a tad pricey at £1100, the Forge one is the front runner for me at the moment considering what you get with their intercooler kit for the money.

    But maybe John could answer, if I choose to use a different intercooler to what is used on their/your stage 3 am I going to invalidate my warranty with you (Thorney) and will the different flow rates of the Forge compared with the Thorney cooler cause running issues at all?

    Cheers
    I have a difference of opinion to you.

            Yeah not sure where I got the idea in my head that the Thorney cooler was £1100, just checked again and it's £831 so only a few quid more than the Forge one.

            I'll stick with the Thorney cooler then.

                  Yeah but are you gonna fit it yourself? 1100 would probably be a fitted price..

                  There is options on eBay ~400 quid which are more then good enough for stage 3. But I'm sure Regalvxr and dtox will start the my extremities bigger then yours argument again. lol

                    Yeah fit it myself, it's fairly straight forward will get my mate the Vaux technician to help as well.

                          Yes but whats the point of being raped or £1000 for a cooler that is way over spec'd for my needs?

                              plus if you get the Forge cooler you get the larger pipe work and top hat for maximum flow
