Totally forgot to check what size intercooler pipes are on my S40 2.0d s. Want to order my new larger front mounted intercooler. Most pipe kits seem to be 2.5" or 2.25" ( hard pipe with samco elbows)

Anyone know what size i need?

Don't believe there is a difference between D and T, which if that's the case the T5 piping is 2.25".

Thanks! I was pretty sure it was 2.25!

Mine is 7.8" X 22" X 3.5"

You could go a little wider but that core is nearly the exact size of the factory bumpers air dam so really no point.

Mine is 550x180x65, fits perfect, only 1 cool line isn't in the bumper "air dam" Fits with no problem,
so 140mm is a easy fit.
