    You say that the intercooler is a tight fit. Could you remove the old fit and fit the new without removing anything else, major that is?

    I have just had the Forge intercooler fitted to mine, I got Lipscomb's to do it as the front bumper has to come off to do the job, and while the instructions supplied are quite comprehensive it would be possible to do it yourself if you have the time/patience/garage space at home.

    I have also spent the morning fitting the Forge induction kit, I have to admit it took a couple of hours to do despite the claim it is a 45 minute job. But now it is on there it looks great, I just need to take it for a test drive.

    Thanks for that.

    Being cheeky do you still have the instructions? I wouldn't mind a look at them if possible.
