hello all,
i know some of us here has got a bigger size intercooler swapped out.
care to share your set ups?

i'm eyeing a small ARC unit with a set of custom pipings, wonder if there are any that are cheaper but of the same designs.

cheers

Just went down to Ah Man there.
Intercooler plus piping cost around $700++.. But forget to ask what brand intercooler.

according to most experienced pple i talk to like Joey frm Harmony, Alex from Autotronic, CH motors, etc etc, they all seem to agree that a long and thin intercooler will work best as it keeps lag to a minimum. Piping can either be used stock or customized, but diameter musn't be increased by much unless you plan for a huge power boost which really isnt possible with the standard GDI anyway.
