Title: twin intercooler
Post by: r5gttraider on 00:25, Fri 03 April 2009
had a crazy idea

could i move the stock intercooler down to the inside of the bumper and have a pipe running across the front to a second intercooler

just got given a spare one from my mates friend i brought the car from

some thing along the lines of

genreal pipe layout

Very long boost circuit, no real gain, prob won't be able to fit it where you want to.

the long route was what i was thinking

im not after any gain

i want the charged air to be cooler to make the engine run cooler, as i read the key to hgf is to keep the engine cool, just a idea

my intercooler was 65 an the pipe work for it came nearly 140 an buy hgf do u mean head gasket failure becuase its engine cooling u want to be looking not the air intake temperature

yes so you paid 200 quid for it all

so i need just piping,,,, even if i pay 140, but then i suppose a double capacity oem look i/c would be cheaper??

any way
i can get the alloy pipes made bent for preety much nothing, mate works at a metal fab/engernerring company already spoke to him and asked if i could get this done

did you buy the pipework as a kit for the 5 or did you have to maket it up then get the relative pipework that looked close to what it was supposed to?

cant you just move the rad over abit to where the old intercooler was,save you cutting away at the car.the pipes should fit spot on ofthats done.

Post by: owe on 11:26, Fri 03 April 2009
yeh i thought bout that as u can see the rads sittin a bit wonky lol but rather than start extending pipes an stuff i figure its gona be far easier to just cut out a notch, line it with something then the pipe shud sit in it nicely

use the bonnet seal stuff the rubber bit that slots down both sides and across the bulk head get some of that stuff

or door seal

both will work
