    In a word..... No. You don't need any of that pipe work and the 2 pipes you would need are not in that pile.

    That's great cheers
    Is it worth getting a taller one or not?
    Also does the 180 hight fit well without chopping anything?

    If you don't have any plans of going hybrid or big turbo you don't need an ic as tall as mine. When I went hybrid with the smaller ic (150mm) I was easily hitting 20°C more than the ambient temp, when I fitted the taller one (280mm) I was getting max 5°C more than ambient.

    Sorry mate never got chance today as chucking it down, but basically I've 2 short metal strips from b and q which are attached with screws to the top of the intercooler and then with a lot of hassle are attached to the crash bar. Need to drill the crash bar (use a big high power drill lol)

    Thanks mate and yea the weather's rubbish! Glad I got my service out the way before the rain! And that's what I was going to use something similar to what your on about... is your intercooler completely away from the radiator now then?
