    FMIC - Installing a front mount intercooler from a Volvo V70

    Hello All,

    I'm not sure I've mentioned this before, but this is my first Skoda, and I'm really enjoying the look and the drive of the car. I've driven a TDI before, but only as a test drive, never really living with it, and it's quite pleasant.

    The engine is round, this is, it's got power across the rev range, but it's more powerful in the lower revs and I would like it to be even rounder in the middle and upper rev range and since I have a IC from a V70 P80 Volvo and am thinking of flash tuning the Octavia, was wondering if there is enough space to fit the Volvo IC.

    The Cooler is wide and tall. Not sure of the exact measures, but it's quite a lot bigger then the stock one. I looked around and the catch release and front bar seem to be the biggest issue with fitment. Has anyone tried something like this before? Is it doable with minimal fiddling?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
