In Topic: Dual Pass Vs Single Pass Intercooler?

16 November 2015 - 04:44 PM

It's pretty annoying this is coming out after i already bought and fitted the older version not long ago.. Price seems very competitive as its the same as my singlepass and with a significant drop in temps over the older one too..  :angry:


My drop of 20C over the std intercooler does not seem to give enough headroom when the engine management cut-off temp is set so low..

Nice information you posted, and the air temp values are almost the same drop as i had, 60C to 40C and the new massive one almost halves the temp once again..


Most of the gains from the Airtec is because of the outboard mounting and that carries on with the monster dual pass, i indeed agree that the Mountune IC is a waste of money and wont give you any benefits as goingwith the  "step" up as the Airtec..


I would say its overkill to go with the dual pass if your going for normal upgrades and a map up to say 160hp, when you feel the need to fit new pistons and rods this would be a smart upgrade..


What about oil cooling and you also need to do oil changes more frequently, as i would think that the eco oil will degrade much faster when violating it with more hp..?

Right I have found the guy selling one of they mountune inductions I asked for his email he's selling it for £110 delivered he will get back to me


I more like this package for sure and go for it, and i wish used my brain and went for the mountune kit and it would have been cheaper and easier to fit.. But im keping it for now and getting a map with the changes i've made for now..


A lot of aftermarket parts fits like it was made for another car, all my induction parts from AS and silicone tubes from J1 i had to modify.

I had 320hp and that didnt help the vader


I know and i guess there's never been the need for these big bucket like cone filters, and its something we/i've fitted without any knowledge about airflow.. I'm only 150£+ new hose out of pocket, as i had to cut and ruin a new silicone hose the fit it because of space issues.


Please go for the Mountune style airfilter box or stick with the stock airfilter box, others are money down the drain imo..


Anyone have options for exhaust upgrades, maybe fitting 140hp model parts etc. after a downpipe+cat upgrade? - I want to wait with a upgrade here as i dont want a new rear bumper and want to hide the rear silencer tail pipe as the stock one..

I had the darth vader on my mazda3 mps , novelty of the noise soon wore off , esp on fairly light throttle.


Exactly the same points i have about it, i got tired of it 15 mins after finished fitting all the pipework and filter.
