    Actually quite like the look of that kit on the red car...

    But I'm sure this build will still be quality...
    of course I dont care, your a muppet!!!

    Jon I am keeping things relatively stock with the rev3 motor, aiming for reliability over all out performance, in effect a "stock" 1.5 as the factory might have intended.

    I am going for our tried and tested SC location intercooler above the gearbox, it gets loads of cool air blasting up from underneath the car in that area and not directly over the engine, I am not a fan of the Gt4 chargewarmer but it does have its uses when space is tight, I am using the chargewarmer on the Mk3 3s-gte build but purely for space restriction reasons. I also don't like the added weight of the chargewarmer, pipes, pump, cinq rad, all of that coolant etc

    This is what I am going for, a recent customers 1.5 build but in a more OEM colour scheme, this setup just makes everything so compact.

    Paul, what intercooler is that from or what brand is it?

    And they are just as efficient as standard?

    They're better than stock, larger core.
