    bang for buck? intercooler vs et 137

    hey guys ,

    running a 07 rxp with

    8650 ecu
    x charger
    42 inj
    valve retainers
    resonator bypass exhaust

    Im in Aust and by the time i ship fizzle xs intercooler kit here and do conversions etc i m up for approx $600, which will be what i can do a et 137 drop in for....




    so bang for buck - which would be the better option ??????

    will i have issues if i run standard rxp innercooler with et 137 with my current setup

    btw pm me if anyone has any of the above up for sale?

    Intercooler for sure. I wouldnt run an et137 without an external cooler. Especially at 8650rpms.

    mmm. was my thoughts also, but sometimes the chase for higher boost makes me do silly things

    Once your set up with the intercooler, you can easily upgrade the charger down the track. You will get big gains going to an external cooler set up anyway, and it will be much safer.

    You're probably going to need to add fuel when you increase the boost also. Im assuming you have a Les ECU remap?

    Check the classifieds bro. There are always cheap intercooler kits popping up in there. Or post a WTB.

    I bought the complete Piranha parts I/C kit off Damo.R for a good price.

    I live in the UK and shipping on the Fizzle Intercooler was high for me but it is one of the best mods I have ever done to the ski. 100% go for it.

    And don't forget about the RRFPR when you put on an intercooler, and a AFR gauge, you don't want to run lean,

    The RRFPR might not be needed, depending on the mapping on his ECU
