Re: intercooler help

I know Matt-wrx-import was looking into doing this too (as am I) tho i'm way off from starting yet... Maybe send him a pm and see how far he's got with it. hopefully you can both help each other out, and then tell me...

Re: intercooler help

simoly put people tend not to bother, the amount of effort needed to do it and the cost involved you may as well go front mount. Does't realy help you i know but does give an idea as to why you wont find much info

hey thanks, your reply went in to my spam, sorted that now. i dont know how to pm newbi, but that would be cool i have got a v5 tmic but have been told v9 are much easier to convert. i have done the bulk head with a soft hammer its not much to do, then it will fit, you may have to reloc, you brake vac, line easy. the hard part seems to be moving the bov and modding the ypipe when i get one.
