There have been a few questions recently about what intercoolers will fit in the front of a mini, so I thought I'd share some research I did when deciding what to run in my own car.

For the benefit of those who find this thread in the future I have collated the pictures into catagories to help people find what is possible with their set-up. I have included the username of the owner to allow users to search the forum for more information on a particular installation.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of all of the installations available on this forum, just the ones I have. If you have any pictures of your installation, that you feel may be of use to new/future users either post a link or the image in this thread and I can add them to the main post. Also feel free to add any information or post corrections for incorrect information.

I do not own the rights to any of the pictures below, they have all been aquired from this forum. If you would like any of the images removed for whatever reason just send me a PM and I will amend this post.

It is Nicks and it's a cosworth intercooler.

My current one is available off the shelf from Allard. It's just had one of the end tanks modified a bit.

Excellent resource though. Well done.

Good work, I'll send some better pics once I have it all fitted properly. I guess it's also worht adding that there are two intercoolers in Audi TT one on left hand side and one on right hand side. Difference is in outlet location/angle.
