Hi guys,

I dont have one, I need one for a friends Giulietta 1.8 Quadrifoglio Turbo.

He has remapped the car to 285 Bhp and he has been told that a nice intercooler kit will give him another 10 bhp.

Been searching around for such a kit,
Looked at AHM, shop-alfisti and on other sites over the internet, including the Novitec page and Gozzoli in Italy.
No luck though.

Has anyone by any chance already done this mod to their Giulietta ?

I have not done an intercooler kit but I have made an induction kit by removing the standard airbox and putting in a cone filter :

sounds lovely !!

I have also a you tube video as well :

hope this helps !
Yes, sounds good that mate! :thumbs:

Seems pretty quick too, might go test drive one of these.

Actually, no, better not must stay sensible!! :lol: :p

Is it possible to measure your current intake temperatures?

Please measure before and after

Going to order an intercooler from here ProtoXide On-line Shop - ProtoXide. . Not cheap but plug and play. So far ive got Spider box, Ragazzon exhaust without centre box, induction kit and soon also decat.
I've been using protoxide intercooler on my GQV for a long time.
That is surely not a plug and play intercooler. You have to remind the seller put longer connection L pipes (blue connection pipes on pic) , or you 'll have to modificate your intercooler connection tubes.

After that you 'll have to cut your original intcooler's plastic supports to fit this large protoxide.

Does it worth it ? Sure it does. After the setup it will blow like hurricane :lol:

Thanks DeP for the info and pics. What i meant by plug n play is you dont have to alter anything major such as alterations to bumper etc.

Has anybody tried the Bluetooth obd dongle to use on Torque app? Im using torque app but dont get all read outs that the app could provide. Does it depend on the quality of the dongle? Mine is a cheap blue one off ebay.

Yes, dongle is the issue, I bought a couple and none worked with iPad and I just gave up. I now have an S4 mini maybe I must try again

I am using cheap ELM327 based BT dongle, works fine with Torque on an Android phone - reads most things from the ECU including boost etc.

My Bluetooth dongle works with my S3 and S3 mini its a blue thingy off ebay.

I get no intake temps etc etc . So i was wondering if the dongle is an issue , me not being able to get full potential of Torque.
