Yup, correct. My engine already has an intercooler. It's not clear what other differences there are - is the turbo the same? Are the innards the same, etc etc. Don't think it's worth the effort.

This place has a box which takes it to 100hp - bolt on so can be removed and I think it has an adjustment allowing you to turn it down.
Looks good! I'll think about it, but of course, the ugly face of insurance rears up again...

My aim: to achieve 3L/100km.
Best tank @ 65mph: 864.2 miles 69.36MPGus 3.4l/100km
