u can get massive universal ones off ebay for about 100 quid but then ud have to work out what pipeing ud need,

but for about a tenner u can buy just about any chrome pipe and then ud need a few silicone adaptors,

also saab 9000 intercoolers are massive and are abotu 30-40quid!

How much bigger can you get in the front of a MK3. There does not look to be loads of room in the front of mine

i think either brianpotter or hellfire done it on a TDCi, you will need some kind of remap to make it work properly, and it may need some jiggery pokery (possibly cut bumper) relocating things. on my mk2 TD the PAS cooler had to be repositioned for the big intercooler

when i took the front bumper off mine to do all the stone chips on it at work, you could double the size of the intercooler in height and not need to modify anything, we use a company at work (i work in a bodyshop) that could prob make one up for me, i thought id ask if there was a big gain from doing it before i enquired
when i do ill post up how much and how easy lol

why would a re map need to be done though???

ive got a merc sprinter intercooler i know its wider than a mk2 radiator and pipe holes aim towards the rad when fitted so you can fit them down the side of it

i will be selling it too its brand new.
