    im looking at a universal intercooler, and doing some reasearch im wondering what i need to do with the MAP sensor on the LC, do i need a special alloy/silicone pipe to house this sensor?

    any guides or owt would be good, seen loads of guides for the LCR but not much on the LC

    thanks! :)

    Yep i'd recommend forge, more expensive then the universal ones but it'll fit no problem comes with everything you need to do it properly and hassle free and before people say yeah but forge are over priced blah blah blah, some one had to do the design and research on the intercoolers for cheapo companies to copy and that isn't cheap to do plus their customer service is superb.

    Is that just for the silicone hose that goes from the top of the intercooler to the intake manifold with the map sensor hole in it? I Need a new one

    i was thinking of maybe cutting the OEM pipe and somehow connecting it in the system/, not sure though, if forge sell one for around 40.00 thats not too bad, do you have a link for it m8?

    check my readers ride, if not do a search on here, should be some pics. tbh, where tried to mount the forge pipe i think it was in the wrong location as it was the inner wing, if you place it more towards the TB hose you'd be better off.

    There is no OEM pipe to cut, the sensor is mounted in the intercooler.
