    Has anyone fitted a front mounted intercooler to their short nose T4, and had it situated behind the grille?? I have seen people mount them below the bumper (especially when they have fitted an aftermarket bumper), but I have seen an intercooler that would fit lovely behind the radiator/lower...

    I understand what they both are but what are the dangers (if any) to the engine? Can anyone advise please??

    Has anyone been using a charged air cooler instead of an intercooler? I have been talking to Rake who is thinking about getting one from Renn Tech As I understand it the charged air cooler uses water to cool the air being drawn into the engine. The colder it is the more dense it is. I spoke...

    OK, just as a pure matter of interest, does the size of an intercooler make much difference?? I'm assuming bigger=cooler=better - at least to a certain extent - but what are the sort of core sizes that would be appropriate to the 1.9, 2.4 and 2.5 in standard trim (so to speak) and what sizes...

    Finished fitting nissan x-trail intercooler into my 88hp today.re-sited n75 valve, re-routed vacuum pipes. Re-sited coolant tank. All hosework was either modded from standard pipework or scrappy sourced. Pic 2 and 3 show the modded pipe layout either side of i/c. Pic 3 shows MAP sensor spliced...

    Project Power has been a major force in the T4 movement, and following on from Trumpcard Trivia I thought it would be interesting to see how the figures stacked up for the different starting points i.e. the TDI 102 and the TDI 88. So, using the data from the TDI as a general starting point...
