jump on xr6turbo forums. get a WogCooler through the bloke they call the Wog. They bolt in to the standard pipework and flow heaps better. Good price too.


That is the wog cooler, i bought the same cooler off ebay and it arrived with xtc advertising, which is dyno wogs business. As far as bang for you buck they are decent coolers, with just the cooler and generic 10psi tune i got 255.5 rwkw, where as the tune alone normally only gets around 230-240rwkw. Plus they are piss to fit and look good.

Wog cooler is the exact smae one as the Monza - They come from the same factory he just bought a few and sold them as "wog" coolers.
Use to think the wog was teh ducks nuts but then you hear peoples storys!
Get whoever is cheaper - The monza one from autotechnica that Most Autobarns, Repco's, Auto Ones can get in or if the Wog is doing them cheap!


Problem with the Monza and Wog coolers are they only replace the cooler. Getting a kit like the Hybrid intercooler kit replaces all the pipe work aswell with larger piping, also shorter overall.

Yea chaning the pipe work is deffiantely recomended, i need mine to look as stock as possible though, for warranty and being a p plater with a xr6 turbo, i want to be able to pop the bonnet and say its stock, ifs theres chrome piping eveywhere thats prett hard to do. For how cheap it is, it isnt a bad cooler.

I had the hybrid style one which is the same core as the wog/monza one... i found it a bit too small for the summer heat, so I put a bigger one on... 600 x 400 x 85... now on hot days it doesnt lag so much

Did you have to move the air con or anything like that to make such a big cooler fit?

Yes, I moved/ pushed the air con line back towards the radiator. And cut some of the bar, about 10mm x 40mm on each end

dynowog designed those coolers and monza make them for him, hence them being named a "wogcooler"
what stories have u heard neo nick?

edit: btw those wog coolers are 300% more efficient than the standard coooler. 8-)

I use the stock rubber hose from Turbo to IC, with a reducer to fit the 3in inlet on the IC... then I made up 2.5in piping to go to the trhrottle body- under the headlight, up and around the manifold into the throttlebody.
Doing this you loose the airbox and crossover section, so I mounted a pod filter under the pasanger headlight, and re mounted the bov and plumbed it into the intake.
Once it was dynoed it hit 14psi on the 10psi tune, so the tune was redone and it made the same power on 8psi... much better to drive especialy in traffic
