    Thats strange, you'll buy a very expensive Forge intercooler, you'd expect it to fit just right, but now you can't even mount you're foglights :confused:

    I have another question that could be interresting for everybody. I would like to put all temperature logs with all different intercoolers (smic, forge, seat sport, aftermarket universal) under each other so you have a good image of witch cools best.

    Keep in mind cooling ain't everything that's important with an intercooler, it's design is very important to keep the final pressure behind the throttle valve as high as possible.

    I know there already are some logs available on seatcupra.net but I cant find em all. To begin with I,ve got mine here with the original smic.



    Seat Ibiza 1.8 20vt FR remapped @ 214 BHP
    Intercooler: Original SMIC
    - Old type FR Bumper log 1 - Outside: 19°C - Oil: 97°C - Water: 97°C
    - Old type FR Bumper log 2 - Outside: 19°C - Olie: 100°C - Water: 100°C
    - Modded Cupra Bumper log 1 - Outside: 19°C - Oil: 97°C - Water - 97°C
    - Modded Cupra Bumper log 2 - Outside: 19.5°C - Oil: 100°C- Water - 96°C


    [​IMG]



    This log may not be correct as it is performed by Forge itself.
    Seat Ibiza 1.8 20vt FR remapped: No
    Intercooler: Forge kit for Ibiza MKIV
    Outside air temperature, 16°C - 4th gear run

    [​IMG]



    This log is from user smark32
    Seat Ibiza 1.9 TDI PD130 remapped: Yes
    Intercooler: Stock smic
    Outside air temperature: unknown - 4th gear run

    [​IMG]
    Seat Ibiza 1.9 TDI PD130 remapped: Yes
    Intercooler: Stock smic - REMOVED FOG LIGHT
    Outside air temperature: unknown - 4th gear run

    [​IMG]

    This log is from user Damoegan
    Seat Ibiza 1.8 20vt Cupra - remapped: Yes
    Intercooler: Stock Seat Sport FMIC
    Outside air temperature: unknown - Gear: unknown
    This is a strange log, as I don't know what scale is used on the horizontal axle. The vertical one shows very low temperatures beneath 35°C

    If anybody else could post there logs here would be great.

    :confused: SeatSport style kit? What do you mean? If you mean a front mount, then it's been out for years. I should know as I had the first ever one when I had my first Ibiza. In fact, it's pictures from my old car on their site...

    forge are looking into a new FMIC for the ibiza going to make it similar to the seatsport one as a few people have had some problems with the other one (fitting) which is how i read it?

    I'm going to try fit my tomorrow (with help) and have a few questions.

    Do i need to buy any screws to mount the FMIC to the brackets as i didn't get any with my kit

    I'm sure i've seen a guide but can't find it ( just read through 11pages here ) anyone remember the link?

    Cheers

    The Forge pipework doesnt go that high up - so if you buy the Forge pipework and Intercooler, you wont need to that pipe as you dont change that pipe. :)

    right after reading through all 11 pages i've came to a slight conclusion that just need finalising if someone would be kind enough?

    these are the parts i would need to fit the seat cupra fmic to my 1.9tdi 130 sport (53plate):

    6LL145804 AIR COOLER
    6LL145935C PIPE
    6LL145832 HOSE
    6LL145879 BRACKET
    6LL145770 PIPE
    6LL145838A HOSE
    6LL145834 HOSE
    6LL145808C BRACKET
    6LL145875A BRACKET
    6LL145808B BRACKET
    6LL145875B BRACKET
    6LL145832B HOSE

    6LL145808 Mounting brackets
    6LL145808A

    N90280901 x4 mounting bolts
