Yep, very much so!
IMO it's not worth paying the extra for Forge, DS etc when Airtec Gen3 does the same job for half the price.
Only if you're doing 100's of trackdays in hot weather would I get one of the more expensive I/Cs.

Stupid question probably... Are the after market intercoolers an easy DIY fit or do they need to be taken to a garage to do it ?

I plan on spending some cash coming up to summer on a Dreamscience CAI and the Airtec intercooler and id like to do them myself with a friend who works on cars alot.

Cheers and sorry for the hijack

couple of axle stands, couple of star sockets (or whatever they are called) for the undertray screws, a couple of sockets, a bit of time (45mins) and bobs your uncle.
I can say this now with a lot of thanks to a fellow member who helped in fitting mine ... they know who they are

Firstly it's a great bit of kit! I'm delighted with mine.

Secondly I'd say you'd be better advised to get someone to help as it's quite a heavy bit of kit so having someone to hold it while you locate the bolts will be a good idea.

+1 to the help. Not easy to manuovure it into place, hold it there and attach it whilst on your back under the car.

I think it is where most of us bought ours from
although some of us were lucky with their group buy from last year.

Good thinking that man...!

Yeah all we need is a nice warm day i think and we'll be sorted


Cheers for the input guys
No worries - that is what we are here for
