    Isuzu intercoolers?

    I have noticed most 4bd1T Landy setups are not running intercoolers. My question is if you where doing your setup again would you install a intercooler?
    Iím finally about to undertake my re-wire of my county and turbo setup. Iíve collected all the bits I need and just waiting for my hx30 to arrive but unsure if I should source a intercooler as well?
    Thanks

    What's the plans for the engines tune?
    I have a Plazmaman water to air on mine, yeah it lowers the egt's, and i suppose it does its job, but is it necessary, not really.

    You will love it!
    It is a completely different engine with a turbo
    Is an intercooler required?
    Really depends on how much fuel you add and how heavy your right boot is.
    IMO no itís not necessary
    Make sure you get a good EGT gauge though. You will need it!!!!

    Has anyone tried doing a TD5 intercooler and radiator? It would seem and easy fit.

    A friend installed an intercooler on his County 4Bd1t and claims it turned his horsepower into draught horsepower.
