i think this may be why my car would seem to hold back when flooring it (not that i do
)

big thanks to ads for sorting me out the new pro-alloy strs cooler as a replacement

WTF has happened to that??

dave and gardener - the cores have blown out because of the boost pressures and because they not the best coolers in the world. adam knows what i mean


phil - the car feels sooooo much more responsive. basically before i fitted the new one, the car felt like it had a mix of miss-fire and turbo lag and then the boost would kick in, and all you need to do now is tap the throttle and you have instant boost pressure.

i had no idea it had pushed the top out until i got it off the car.

its worth getting it changed asap as when i first noticed it only 1 core had gone on the bottom, and then when i was at pumabuild last week 3 had gone! and that was in 3 months!!

there are two ways you can tell if the bottom is getting worse

1 - look through your bottom grille with a torch

2 - look under your car at the bumper deflector (infront of the main undertray) and you will see it pushed down, mine was down about 4 inches!

other than that get the car up in the air and remove both undertrays and have a look

Yeah i have looked and its has changed shape, but does that cause it to stop working? i know it looks weird. But does that mean it broken inside?
