    Intercooler and hardware

    So Iím thinking about fitting an intercooler to my 2.4td. Before I go and remortgage my house for the bits I need I thought I would ask if anyone has the parts on here they wanted to sell?

    Cheers.

    I think I have a spare l200 top mount that came with the red van if thatís any good to you. Very used but I donít want anything for it.

    Failing that, I used the eBay one that loads of people are selling. 650x140 or something like that which came with the pipeworl and clips. I just needed a couple extra 90 degree bends/reducers. Works a treat.

    Feeling the love right there!

    Would be a good option - have read in a few places that these can be used quite easily and effectively.

    It's a cracking offer - all credit to Tommy - but his eBay FMIC is working a treat with 300įC EGT's (exhaust gas temp) fully loaded. You'll not get anywhere near the same efficiency with the large L200 IC with its oddly sized 48mm ports spread across the top and no real directional airflow across it (that's why it was originally fitted with an electric fan underneath to draw air through it despite the bonnet scoop!) PITA but go mortgage the house and do it properly!

    I wasnít interested in the top mount myself. The airflow on the FMIC is far superior. I have a new grill cut out beneath the number plate to get the air flowing through it. I reckon it cost around the £160 mark including the mk4 golf lower bumper grill.

    Cheers tommy, I am tempted to go fmic but for the little extra power Iím using in mine I think a standard top mount should be enough. I want to keep it original as possible but as good as it can be if that makes any sense. I need to spend some time on the old boy now the sun is here and get some bits sorted on him. Not least the flashing oil light!!

    Well youíre welcome to have the l200 one from me if you want it. Itís free to a good home. I wonít be using it as the red van will have the same set up as the white one in a month or so. Itíll help me clear a little space in the shed and get less earache for all my car parts lol

    I have a standard top mount from a 2003 2.5 tdi. Have the brackets and one pipe that I think is right and a couple a pipes I brought to play with. But the way I have the 1.9td going now I am tempted to move them on. £100 quid the lot.
