Right, my birthday yesterday so got a bit of cash Have decided to spend it on the car
So, have had a look at Abbotts website and am thinking about a bigger delivery pipe or perhaps putting in a bit extra and getting one of their knockdown price intercoolers.

What do you reckon? Has anyone got any experience with the bigger intake pipe? Also is it beneficial to my car (MapTun Stage 3 aero - approx 300bhp)

Oh please, help me spend my money

I thought that would be the popular choice
Is the Abbotts one any good and I presume it's a straight swap?

thanks

Yes, it's very good- I've got one. It's a direct replacement for the stock unit. You need to remove the cooling radiator and unbolt the A/C rad to swap it.

Running 50mm Allard I/C with standard ECU gives me full standard boost almost all the time where before it would heatsoak easily.
I'd say you dont really get your ££ worth unless you are running it with an uprated ECU though.

I've also got an Abbott Intake Pipe on it's way. Presumably it fits onto the stock intercooler. Does this mean the pipe narrows towards the bit that goes into the I/C? If so does anyone know the size of the pipe at this bit or the size of the I/C pipe?

thanks

I have Abbott's enlarged intake pipe fitted and will be installing my Allard 50mm intercooler hopefully this week. I have not measured the pipe but it is seems to be the same size as the throttle body connection all the way except for the last 3" where is shrinks slightly and connects on the standard intercooler hose. It is a drop in replacement, I didn't notice any difference in performance but I am sure it will complement the new larger intercooler.
