there is plenty of universal ones on ebay which iam sure you could fit somehow and it would just be a case of making somepipe work up

think iam going to go for the grille mounted option now for a intercooler as dont want to chop standard bumper up really and i think it will get more air behind grille and keep it looking like this

Yeah definitelty mate, slightly shorter boost run too :)

i have an aj tuning bumper so my cooler would get more air flow from being in the bumper really,but i prefer the grille option.

if im going out to race i'l just pop the grille off

Hey Steve , what turbo would you suggest me ? Now I have T3 and it is very laggy.. It comes on full boost at 4.5-5k rpm...Ofcourse ,it kicks very well , but my car is for road use (not planning to have more than 200bhp) , so I would like to have very quick spool , at low rpm's , but to try not to lose torque at highs. I am thinking about something like KTR 250 ROLLERBEARING POWER SYSTEM HYBRID TURBO , but the price is a bit high  :)  what do you think about it?  :wink:

Thanks for any suggestions.

Sorry for my english...  :oops:

I can get a roller bearing T28 for 910+ postage, or something like the T25 with .49 rear will do, like i have now ;), this is 520 new or i'm thinking of selling mine soon to upgrade to a T28 as i use mine for drag racing, keep an eye on the for sale section.

Here is a price list, you would have to add postage to any of these prices.

T25 with .47 rear, good for 180bhp, maybe more depending on engine spec 450 (this turbo is closer to the KTR 230 than the 180 as the 180 runs a bored out .35 T2 rear housing ) 55 trim comp wheel
T25 with .49 rear 225 bhp 520 60 trim comp wheel
T28 with .49 rear 260bhp 620 50 or 60 trim comp wheel
T28 rollerbearing 280bhp 910

you'l have to push the rad towards the engine like i have unless you find a slim intercooler,
also when you measure up,dont forget about the silicone bend's you'l be adding that will make it wider still.

if you can find one,i'd get a cooler with the inlet facing towards the turbo,you'l have little bit more room then :)
