    Hi all

    Im not really that clued up on intercoolers,but would like to know what would be the immediate difference in performance with a forge FMIC fitted in my FR 20VT. Its basically standard at moment with the standard SMIC.

    Cheers Will

    It has been asked and said here before but I read so much and trust so little, so to be sure:

    If you want to change the SMIC to a FMIC but have a FR TDI 130PD with facelift FR bumper AND Xenons/Washers. Which intercooler+pipe-kit will be the right choice? Or is it just not possible to keep the washers (I need those for the Belgian MOT).

    I prefer the Seat Sport with Forge pipes, but that might interfere with the washers, right?

    I'm sure you can't fit a FMIC with XENON washer jets for the headlights. Either the Forge FMIC or SEAT Sport one as on both, you get the top intercooler pipe (going from the FMIC to the EGR), running right along the top edge of the bumper. Right where washer jets would be. So I think you either need to live with SMIC, or fit a FMIC and take off the washer jets.

    yep you're right you just cant get one if you have headlight washers

    ive spoke to jabba, and they can get a custom one made by pro alloy but it will be 1600 as they are one offs,

    forge have said you can use a universal cooler and get the pipes made up

    Hi!
    Sorry for bothering! Have used "search" but there is a mountain of pages and I did not found egsact numbers I was looking for...
    Can someone just write what diameter is OEM intercooler piping on PD100? I recon it is 57mm (2,25") but not sure. Does FMSKINT fit my PD100 (ATD) cause I think that kit is build for PD130?
    Thank's!

    Not Gunna lie I've not done a huge search but if someone can answer this it'll be greatly appreciated :D

    I'm upgrading my IC pipework for my cupra from turbo to IC. My problem is with the connection to the charge pipe where a rubber pipe goes inside and seems to be clipped in from the outside. It baffles me an I don't know how to go about upgrading this certain pipe.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated :) it's a 1.8t btw ;)

    You dont need to drill any holes at all... de-mount the rad, slide the brakets in and bolt it all back up

    how much are new standard ones? My intercooler looks like it might have a leak has its gotoil coming out along the opposite end to where the pipes join. Is it common for intercoolers to split?
