Youll have to ask Grant it his car now.
My current 2 is a yellow v6.
Intercooler is ahead of the gearbox.
I would have a charge cooler tbh.
When i get round to a supercharger thats what i am going to do.

Anyone got any advice on a 2.5 inch v band adapter versus a 3 inch - the 3 inch is cast, the 2.5 is stainless?

Which would be preferable

Cheers Scotte/ Any idea where to get some nice long studs for the new exhaust manifold? - is 10mm thicker than the OEM one.

So, any ideas on washers for the manifold studs? I have nord lock washers, but I'm reading mixed things.

Thanks in advance
