bought a mk3 cupra just before christmas looking at changing the front mount intercooler from a universal ebay jobbie that on now to 1 that fits propper. is there any 1 else other than forge that make a kit for the car. im sick of pipes popping. ive never had a proble with pipes popping off on any other turbo cars ive owed.

also after a front bumber that hasnt been hacked to bits

its the clamps on the pipes that are making it pop you need decent pipe clamps on instead of the cheap jubilee clamps
