Finally fitted last weekend after having it sitting around for a couple of years...lol.
Definitely make a difference - engine seems to breathe more easily and at higher rpm definitely spools up faster and power comes in better. It does help with temperatures too. They still creep up in standing traffic but come down a lot quicker than before and on cool mornings temps on intake are in the 30 degree range. Good but expensive upgrade but worth it as I think the under bonnet temps get high compared to the 9000 as is so cramped under there. Can't wait for a colder wet day to get the full benefit :mrgreen:

nice. I agree an intercooler upgrade is always noticeable.
When I fitted my universal, I was impressed at how the numbers dropped and pickup improved.

I can clearly hear turbo whistle at lower road speeds now since I fitted my do88 IC :-)
