    Looking to upgrade the standard intercooler.  What are rated best, Mountune? Roose? Airtec? What are you guys running and recommend?

    Thanks Paul.

    I done allot of looking round and managed to get a second hand ETS, its a beast and looks very well made 👍 Bought the mountune pipe set to go with it, but wish i went for the ETS kit. 😕

    Evening mate!! There’s 2 types of Intercooler, “tube and fin” and “bar and plate”. Tube and fin is lighter, Bar and plate is a bit heavier but far more robust!! I went for the ETS Intercooler which is Bar and Plate. It’s a cracking Intercooler and like @gm has said, it’s a very well made bit of kit, lovely welding on it!! There’s loads out there, varying in price, guess it’s down to what you want to spend mate!!

    Cheers, Marc.

    @brembo Evening mate, I’m still undecided on the colour tho??? i got a load of oven cleaner to strip the anodising, so i think its going silver / original colour with clear coat. It is well put together, and suitable for bigger BHP than some others i looked at.. what upgrade pipes did you use?

    @gm Evening mate!! I think the Gold would work if you had something else gold on your Motor, maybe wheels or brake callipers or sunstrip even!! I’ve got all Mountune Hoses. I really wanted the Stainless Mountune Hard Pipe, it’s very well made, and just ended up getting the Hoses from them too!! Not had any issues.

    Cheers, Marc.

    @brembo i done the same to wanted the stainless bit, but then really looked at the ETS kit after i ordered the mountune…. 🙃 My big silicone pipe has lumps bumps and imperfections and bits falling off it inside, but mountune have said its normal.. 😆 wonder how long it will take bda to spot and reply 🤣

    I was going gold wheels, borla ones but not so sure now… think black and bit of carbon is the way now????

    Mountune cooler is manufactured by Pro Alloy I believe. Just with different Mountune embossed end tanks and without the air diverter plates. And a price hike of course
