306 Intercooler Help

Post by cozziepj » 11 Jun 2005, 20:51

Hi has anyone fitted a xsara/xantia front mount intercooler to there 306 or zx? if so how did you do it? i managed to connect it up for a little while but wast sure how to mount it and what fans to use, also had to use the smaller thicker radiator out of the citroen.
Has anyone any advice cause when i had it fitted it i had the boost at 23psi and it pulled 10 times better than the normal intercooler
cheers

If you remove the standard fans and cowling, you should be able to fit it in their place. Replace the standard fans with the slimmest ones you can find, so it all fits in!

How about Xantia TD Pipework and manifold? It's slim and really hugs the back of the engine...

that was the bits i was using the right angle bit of pipe that comes off the turbo was squashed between the brake servo and the inlet manifold. looks like it would be easier to get a new pipe running towards the gearbox then turn at a right angle towards the intercooler, but dunno where to get something like this from

For that, you would have to have a custom made job. Its not too expensive if you know where to go. You dont even have to use stainless steel if you are not worried about looks, cheaper materials will do fine as long as they are up to the pressure.
