Cheers for the quick response.

I'm glad you said that as was going to wait till i upgrade to ct-27 to run 205 ic, more things to purchase, less demand over here in NZ.
My projects not much at the mo, just really stock, but ill take some pics anyway.

Did anyone have to cut the brackets on the inside of the bonnet to get the ST205 intercooler to fit with the bonnet closed?

And has anyone used the ST205 intercooler with the standard single entry turbo?

Good question - I believe someone has, with modifications to make it fit though

It's been done on my ST165, and the car doesn't boost at all, goes straight to fuel cut. Think it is because the turbo has been clocked the wastegate arm isn't long enough.
