    Yeh man all about the Vstack! It'll definitely give a good cold air feed for the turbo.
    What's the plans for yours?

    im thinking to make a box, abit like the tegiwa/gruppe M airboxes for ep3s. tuck it behind the bumper and have it feed by the remaining bumper hole i have.

    a quick test version shouldnt cost me too much to make so worth a go. means no heat soaking the filter and no water getting to it either.

    Mocked up the Intercooler today!
    Just worked out where I want it to sit etc.
    Treated the front end to some more underseal to keep it fresh!

    As you can see I’ve cut out most of the crash bar! I made a top Intercooler mount at work using material from an old dog gaurd I found in the skip lol!

    I need to modify it further so the cooler sits 40mm higher. I made the mount so you can adjust the Intercooler on the mount.

    This is the height it will sit at when it’s done, atm it’s just resting on some sockets.

    And my intake idea will work by the looks of it. Most difficult but will be the bumper.
    Kind of wish I had a drag style front end!
    Before....

    Modified the mounting bracket today, so that it sits 40mm higher.

    Looks good, Hopefully that filter will help with getting some colder air in.

    Yeh hopefully it will work, I’ll get the cooler bolted on this weekend and then I’ll be able to start playing with the bumper to see if it will work.

    Today was a success!
    Got the Intercooler mounted :dance: and 80% plumbed in.

    I’ve very happy with how it’s turned out, the cooler sits nicely, and it’s nice and high.
    Now the cooler is in place I can finalise the design for the bumper and intake, I’ve got it all worked out in my head and marked out on the bumper, it’ll be a fair bit of work but it should be worth it. Will start on the bumper next week! So stay tuned!

    And finally, you all know that @jesse888 tuned my car, and I say time and time again about how much of an amazing job he’s done.
    Well I thought it was time to start spreading the word! So I had some stickers made up to advertise him.

    He’s a great tuner and it shows as he’s starting getting a few customers now!
    Give this guy a chance, you won’t be disappointed.
