I'm looking for an intercooler kit for my car as i like to have an all you need kit.
I would hate to rip my car apart to fit an FMIC an find that i hasn't got all the part i need.

So what do you think about these kit's ?

Price unknown
ALFA JTD Intercooler maggiorato

350eur (not cheap)
JS-Tuning.nl

How about this universal kit ? will it have to part i need ?

Get an intercooler and go to your local mufler shop, so they can do the piping.

if you use the universal piping, you'll need a ring of weld putting around to stop the silicone couplers/pipe blowing off.

I had it done an inch from the end of the alloy pipe, then clamped either side.

Can somebody tell me what kind of performance gains could I expect from FMIC? My car is remaped from standard 150BHP and 225lb/ft to 180BHP and 275lb/ft.
Would I need to do whole remap all over again, or would the performance be increased due to lower temperature of intake air?
