    Gents:Niceone:
    What would be involved in changing intercooler from the exec to the Type-S? I see that the Type-S has a far more efficient intercooler than the exec by the looks of it?
    Apart from the obvious is there any software changes that need to take place?:Niceone:

    This is the view of the Type-S

    This is the standard car.

    You will get cooler denser air with the bigger intercooler but there are few changes you will need to do . you will see a improvement but nothing major on a stock engine without a remap.

    Hello there,

    Not sure if this is in topic, but is it possible to see the same schematics for the 7-gen accord with the cdti engine? As in my opinion, intercooler for standard dtec is pretty much the same as in cdti?
