    You can pick those XR6T intercoolers for like $50-100 as most owners upgrade to a larger one anyway.

    The intercoolers are too small for the XR6 once tuned up, but perfect for a smaller 4 cylinder turbo.
    Yeh it's a perfect size, and I picked it up for $50 delivered lol. A great deal when compared to anything else in that price range. Plenty enough for my setup too.

    Haven't made an update in a while as I wasn't really doing anything other than driving it until a few weeks ago when my water pump decided to die. First time doing a timing belt & water pump job and one that I was really worried about doing myself for a while but I went for it and thankfully I don't have bent valves after the job

    Installed a titanium pulley provided by Seb at Euro Revolution because why not.

    A few issues that I faced, unfortunately my new OEM serpentine tensioner failed, not sure exactly why but it was shredding the belt. Installed the old tensioner the exact same way and it was working fine.

    I also had to replace my radiator fan as it failed but its making a lot of noise, anyone else experienced this?
