  • intercooler update

    i saw craigyvxr last night in his corsa vxr "very nice car"

    anyway we had a look at his ic and mine ...

    massive difference

    our exit pipes are totaly different location
    we have a huge fan that makes it impossible to use teh corsa ic anyway

    now the main problem..

    our meriva vxrs have the sensors on the out side where as all other vxrs have them inside the pipe work



    gona be awkward for us guys

        well the sensors have to be the same so all that is mate is use the corsa pipes so then they are inside but let me go to radtec and see what they say mate before you rite it off im confident that they will be able to do sumat

                        will you get any gains from an upgraded intercooler if you have only got your precat removed and apanel filter,excuse my ignorance on this guys

                          you will mate definutly... did you get the pre cat done then mate?

                          best off getting ic fitted then to curts for a re map when you can afford it ..

                          i would say 210-215bhp with pre car filter and ic... with a re map aswell anything up t 240 bhp maby more

                          mine alone with just pre cat made 202.2bhp and 240 torque last week

                          and a guys standard with just filter made 192 and 220 torque

I am interested in this intercooler plan but as ever cost would be an issue. i am on net all day at work lookin at different ideas(like now)and reckon i need about £20k up to now
