  • intercooler+turbo hoses

    Hi everyone...
    i noticed that i had very high temperatures. for example when i drive in a very aggressive way and i select 3rd gear i already have 68c degrees iat(intake air temperatures) with 30c degrees the stock ic doesnt help at all (temperatures after loggin' with my laptop)
    any suggestions???
    someone that has tested smth (regal-courtenay-etc) and he is pleased, i think he would help (if possible with numbers)
    i also would like to know if there are any turbo hoses for our car, cause the only thing i found was samco's coolant kit, which i believe its worthless...
    correct me if i am wrong

    thx a lot in advance

        i believe the iat is read before the turbo prob by the air flow meter, so the reading you have is before the intercooler has done any work. Think how hot it is in your engine bay after giving it some beans.. All the components (pipes etc) are going to be hot and heat up the air which is why the air goes through the intercooler last before going into the inlet manifold. Someone please correct me if im wrong..

            too much money must be spent for courtenay here in Greece...
            intercooler for example costs about 1000 euro...
            yesterday i found this ---> (type
            and i might order it... seems to fit...
            a friend of mine (ibiza cupra remapped 1.8T) said that he bought one of these and the max temperatures he show was around 45c degrees in summer!!!
