May I add thAt I pulled the two locating 'pins' on the top of radiator to allow for a few mm movement back to manoover the intercooler up and in.

I dremeled the hidden screw off (with a flexi shaft)

But as Rob states, it is really quite obvious what to do once you are in there Thumbs Up


This write up will help, nice one Robbo Thumbs Up

Do the Allisport IC fit with the original or silicone hoses from the group buy?

Hi Charles,

They fit with both but why would you not fit silicone hoses when in this far?

There is a group buy for hoses live at the moment Thumbs Up

Yes Rob

When purchasing I will put silicone hoses on Thumbs Up

I have replaced the turbo hose 2 month ago with a silicone hose. Do you think it's possible to buy only the 2 other hoses.

Regards

Robbo great post Thumbs Up
Now the intercooler fitted how did it improve engine performance?
Did it do anything to remove turbo lag?

I have the Decat done so would like to understand how much of a difference it makes.
Do you know if the intercooler fits with a hidden winch?

The intercooler allows the air to be at at a cooler temp all of the time even when under heavy load, which leads to a higher compression ratio with the compression of denser air in the cylinders

This give a better response from the engine so the car moves more responsively.

It is very noticeable low to mid range where the turbo is not making up for the lag.

Hope this helps Thumbs Up

Mine as mickey will testify flys like a rocket Laughing

You won't get a hidden winch in though as the space is filled with an intercooler, one of the G4 guys got a Alisport cooler for the winch fitting type Thumbs Up
