Intercooler Piping Upgrade?
Posted 06 November 2012 - 09:02 PM
i was reading a Performance Ford type mag where they did an i/c comparison between various i/c's and the R-Spec one came with larger diameter piping which made a huge difference in terms of bhp but a lot more on torque, with standard piping in made similar power to the others.
This got me thinking as the tdci only has 2" piping. could this be replaced by 2.5" piping? would it make a difference?
the outer diameter of the i/c piping is 2" and if an aftermarket i/c was to be used which already had a larger diameter then this possibly could be matched to a large diameter pipe all the way to the turbo where it would go back to 2" and increase the air pressure going in?
your thoughts please...

Its not a straight forward job to do but fingers crossed i will try to pop down to the exhaust place this Sat and take it off there and get them to fabricate a new pipe as they have a mandrel pipe bending machine. Will need to relocate the sensor part for it to work.
I will also get some silicone hoses to replace the OEM ones.
