R51 ntercooler upgrade

Postby toymaz » Sat Feb 02, 2019 2:44 pm

Hi Guys, 
Who has fitted an upgraded intercooler to their R51 pathy? What are your thoughts on it. I know Dingo had one in his .
Im looking at the plazmaman and HPD at the moment. 
Cheers

Made any decisions toymaz? They would both be good products. I would go with whichever one has more volume.

Hi Dingo,
Not yet, the plazmaman is the bigger one, i know someone with a custom one, it is basically 2 450x300 cores welded together with custom end tanks, a few tubes were removed due to clearance. A friend of mine made it ,but no longer has his workshop. It works fantastic.

Hi

I recently had to install a new intercooler as mine literally blew up and out.... root cause is unknown.

I went with the HPD option and except for it being an exceptionally well made product and a tight fit I cannot fault it.

Was there a noticeable difference I hear you ask.... well kinda, really good response and turbo spool seems to be better, however having said that I also replaced boost solenoid and MAF sensor based on HPD recommendations.

Cheers
