    I’m looking to map mine ASAP but I’m being told that the 225 intercooler is useless.

    What you guys running and what power you running?

    I suppose we should also mention what turbo also

    I used an Airtec for a megane 225 it nearly fitted straight on just had to trim a bit of the bottom scoop and a couple of bits of plastic under the bumper

    Thanks
    Also another question

    Who’s insuring you all? I assume you are informing of engine swap.
    Person I bought it off decided to insure as a standard 197 - not my style at all!

    For me I have a garage and the trade policy covers modified cars for personal use

    As long as it's a bar and plate intercooler it'll be fine. Not a a tube and fin. Doesn't have to be an expensive one either. The spec you Need to get somewhere around the 300bhp/300lb/ft is the intercooler,
    630cc injectors, 3" exhaust system including the down pipe. And a meg mk3 250/265 T15 turbo.

    I have a cheap intercooler but it's a tube and fin, so the charge temps creep up quickly, still made 304.8bhp and 298lb/ft. It's ok for driving about but no good for the track!

    Didn't know until I had it mapped. Learnt a lot along the way.

    So they wouldn’t quote me due to the fact that I ‘occasionally’ will take it to work.

    Explained I have 4 cars and it won’t be often but they wouldn’t budge. Rules are the rules I suppose.

    Anyway... ended up arranging though flux - 39 - decent postcode - mirrored no claims from other provider. £315
