I know, I know, I know. All in good time. BTW that oil is from 3 weeks so for a rover, pretty darn good!

Okay punk's It's a little hard to fit a much bigger intercooler when a winch is about to sit snugged up against the radiator. I have been noodling haw to get a large one in there for a while now. Still not sure how I am going to do it. Yousef, if I told you, I would have to kill you, and nobody wants a dead Ninja. It will be done in 14 days though!!

Is there space to move the engine rad back and then fit a huge intercooler in front?
There certainly is on my 200 tdi. Alternatively you can get a higher flow & better cooling = more power intercooler which fits where the standard one lives fron Alisport here in the U.K. ( says he with a standard intercooler)
As for the oil leak - its only a leak if the oil containing component empties in less than a day, otherwise its only a slight weep!!

Thats one thing I have been thinking about, Mike. There is room, especially if I get rid of the stock fan. I was also considering an intercooler mounted on the inside of the radiator. Might be pretty easy. Do you think that would work??

Probably far better to move the engine rad back and stick the intercooler in front. the intercooler needs all the cool air it can get.

Yeah, but I spent some more time looking at it and while I could realistically get an extra 2 inches back, I would end up mounting the winch 2 more inches back and be in the same predicament. I might have to end up with a twistedperformance direct replacement. Which brings me to my next question, have you ever heard of them? Good, bad reviews. I figure you might since you are on that side of the lake.

David--
I have the two speed fan off a taurus that is a great fit for the D90 radiator (except it was too fat to use on mine w/o relocation). If you want it, you can have it.

Yeah! Def. What is the story, can it pull enough CFM's?? Is it a puller for the inside of the radiator? I will take it though! PM me about shipping. Thanks

David you could try Allisport
http://www.allisport.com/home.php
I've spoken to him at shows and he seemed an all round good chap or
http://www.jeremyjfearn.co.uk/
He's been big in the diesel racing world over here for a long while and is highly regarded.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the link but those are just so expensive for what you get. I am looking to find a cheaper alternative. www.twistedperformance.co.uk seems slightly more reasonable. I am still looking at other options also

Dave, the twisted performance intercoolers have the standard top & bottom sections of the landrover intercooler and weld in a higher flow center core. Allisport and Jeremy Fearne both give you whole new intercoolers
You could also try
www.allardturbosport.co.uk
they're a well respected name on this side of the pond as well, at the end of the day you only get what you pay for and Allisport's welding is a thing of beauty
the Allard site has lots of options from not too much money to serious

Have you modified the fuel delivery?
There's a good article in this month's LRE about doing just that, they don't mention the exhaust gas temperature though, that's rather important as I understand things, If that gets too high the engine goes into meltdown. Does a larger intercooler help with this.

I have upped the boost and fuel a good amount. I am around 150bhp. Does not sound like a lot but man it moves that thing. The problem is the EGT's like you said. I would be getting the intercooler to solve that problem more than for just the power. I can peel out on a dry street in first and second gear with 37in tires. I have a 2in no muffler exaust which helps with the temps, but not nearly enough. At normal freeway cruising, I am at about 650 but I can hit as high as I want floored up a big high hill. I always back off and never go over 1100. It is amazing how much that guage can move around. I have been doing some research and I found an intercooler option for $490 that will fit with my winch and moves 850 CFM of air. Way more than the other places!! That is probably the way I will go but thank you for your help!!
