I promised pics of the front end so here they are.

Will do one massive thread when i get more pics and everything is sorted over the next few weeks.

Right, this is the car straight off the trailer with nice new engine in it. The bits that are missing are hiding in the shed.



MR Postman then delivers my nice new shiny front mount intercooler.



I set to work, removing the standard top mount intercooler.


Decide to get the core mounted and the drives side pipework done first.

Now its time to get the rest of the pipes in under the bonnet. This was a mission.



Thats it, we are all done, quick test run for a few miles and it appears i have no leaks so the next job is to get the bumper, splitter, lights and grill back on.





All finished, and looking and sounding mean.
Looks a damn sight better then this now................

Yeah, had to cut away quite of the bumper and think im going to take the fog lights out and put covers over them as they are completely out of line due to having to cut half the brackets away but im made up with how it looks. laugh

If i had all the bits in one go would have got it done in a full day i think. If i was to fit another then yeah it can be done.
Had to keep popping up to tweeks for the odd hose etc.

Not noticed any lag to be honest but then again i cant drive the car had at the moment anyways. Power increase i think there will be but will have to wait and see when i get it all mapped and set up.
