Twisted Performance, allard turbosport, and JJ Fearn are some of the names most commonly bantered about in the Rover mags. Looks like Twisted has simple clip in solutions from under a thousand to as much as you want to spend.

Is that black truck too slow for a potential buyer?

OT - Cobra pix soon...

I like the looks of the stuff from Twisted, especially since you can plug in the chips and not worry about having the testbook on hand to do the tuning. Plus, you can tart it up a bit with the upgraded intercooler and full stainless exhaust. It'll be a sex-o-rama when you're done.

I believe a chip installed previously was one reason why it spent so much time at Alan's Cityside after you purchased it. Why go there again. Let the new owner figure that out.

That black D110 already has an Allisport intercooler and chip.
I know the guy that did the engine install on it here in San Diego.
Get rid of the automatic and it'll go a lot faster.

yep thats her!!


david - the shifter has a "button" on the top that pushes in, which allows the transmission to shift. it is a full automatic, they use this type of shifter in old resto-mods. to make it appear to be stick, when in fact it is an auto... does this make sense??

Not totally relevent, but I bought the uprated intercooler from Twisted and the quality was a joke. It cost a lot, they shipped it in bubble wrap with no box. The thing was dented. They took some money off and just told me to run it. It did nothing for performance, nothing for EGT. I think they are a cheeseball garage company. I would go somewhere else.

What I meant by "I like the looks of it" was just that - the website makes it all look straightforward - but I should clarify I've got no experience with the company and can't recommend them. Hearing Buck, they're probably just re-selling off shore crap, but who knows?

Buck - Can you post up a close-up picture of the outside of the intercooler core (the fins)...

The stock TD5 intercooler is such a work of fart, i'm amazed anything could be worse!!! I'm just curious that's all... I've spent a long time testing and researching intercoolers - and stories like yours interest me.

I don't have one. They just took the stock intercooler and cut off the ears and welded in an "uprated" cooler. With these things, size matters. If I knew that was what it was, I could have done it myself for a third of what I paid. It didn't work anyway.
