Re: i wanna buy Intercooler (Predator)

I believe thats just a core you will still need to fabricate and fit the plumbing for the FMIC.The intercooler that Phuz another SS member sells is very reasonable in price and has had many good reviews.

Re: i wanna buy Intercooler (zayzay)

the PhMIC is a GREAT deal, similar effect as the BIC, but a lot cheaper.<p><A HREF="http://run.ath.cx/PhMIC.html" TARGET="_blank">http://run.ath.cx/PhMIC.html</A>

Re: i wanna buy Intercooler (lan)

Hey, I want one too. Got a couple of questions:<p>Let's say something hit and damaged my OEM IC <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Would the dealer void my warranty if I installed an aftermarket one?<p>I know it depends on the claim, but what are the possible causes that the dealer could blame on AM IC to deny warranty work?<p>Also, I know we got 2 IC's. Does the bell replace both w/ just one, or do you get to keep one of your old ones?<p>P.S. Sorry if these are dumb questions, I just got the car yesterday so I'm not too familiar w/ it yet. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Bell replaces both oem intercoolers<br>Depends on your dealer might want to contact some of your area R owners and see what they say.

Re: i wanna buy Intercooler (volvosince16)

I got a huge laugh when I compared the one Bell intercooler with the TWO OEM intercoolers that came off my V70R. It was hard to believe that Volvo made a big deal over it having two. What a joke. oclv

Not for nothing, the install on the phMIC is a lot less invasive than the Bell - and having seen both up close and personal, the modern-day phront mount is the way to go.

The Phmic also fills the front bumper space much better. Looks cleaner, but the installer is kind of a crusty dude. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
