Buy a smaller cooler ?

Any exhaust shop will do your piping.

How long is the core?

Keeping in mind that our piping is designed to fit a core with a total length of 895mm's!!

If you needed you could just extend the length of the pipes.

+1 to your piping looking like it was really made by an exhaust place.. That many welds you could of bent that intercooler around the whole engine bay..

I dont know how you could say gktech piping is weak.. a mate was in an accident and the piping on 1 of the bends was bent otherwise it was still 100% straight..

Please inform me of your findings as I have had a set on a car longer than anyone else in the country and have not had one problem at all!

Even though I haven't had it on as long as Steve, I can agree with him.

I haven't had any issues at all, car temp stays low as well as piping

Best thing about it I must admit is the sleeper look
