Hey guys,

I've heard plenty of stories about why not to get FM intercoolers etc.... But i'm still going ahead with it lol

I'm having a bit of trouble though, the standard intercooler has got the sensor plugged into it, so i was wondering what part i'd need for that same connector to plug into.

It's the charge pressure sensor if i'm right, Anyways if anybody has some knowledge that can help on which pipe to buy that would be really helpful.

It would be so much easier to attatch the new FMIC after the standard intercooler... But that's just gonna be stupid haha. So help me out if you want.

Thanks guys

Yeah that's the one. Well not really a big one, something with a low pressure drop that will see me through to when i change the injectors and stuff...

Say about 650mm long, about 200mm high. Thanks for the info, can i get that from their site?

EDIT

forgemotorsport.co.uk/content.asp?inc=product&cat=&product=FMMAPT

That the one i'd need? Thanks
