What did you do to your connect today?

Postby Rumble bee » Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:07 pm

I'll start, I took some pics and thought I'd start a thread on what we're all up to on our vans....
Be it fixing, modding or just cleaning it.


Made up some more hoses and fitted up my 110 intercooler,

Thermister by the look of it. I will be tapping it into the plastic boost pipe, as it was bolted into the old intercooler. Runs fine as it is for now.

The one off the 110ps connect, noticable improvement over the original.

Thanks, i'd use autoglm bumper care on them. I've also tried some 'forever black' its an amercian product that dyes the trim. Worked great on the handles but very patchy on the arches. As you have to get off all the old dressing off as it dosen't like silicon. Will try again with it when I get some time.

do you think front mount intercooler would be a good upgrade from the 110?
