    Went to PCS to have new Bosch 10 IC pump fitted which I bought from US and also uprated IC Heat Exchanger which Ollie got from Eurocharge. Everything went smoothly wiuth the pump then it came to the exchanger. Seems like it was totally the wrong type as nothing fitted. Brackets, holes and if it had fitted the oil cooler would have been scraping the road!! Felt sorry for Graham who had to put it all back again.

    Obviously not Olly or Graham's fault as they ordered the correct part but can only assume it must be for an E55 or similar as it certainly wouldnt go near my SL55. Just hope Eurocharge can sort it out before 17th May when I have the remap and pulley fitted.

    Frustrations of modding I guess.

    This is a pic of the heat exchanger. It did have 2 packs of brackets but they did not help.

    I know it's not a massive help but that's clearly different to the EC one fitted to my E55. My one has welded strap brackets on the face rather than top. Mine also hasn't got the extra plates at the bottom which I assume are to re-mount the oil cooler.

    PCS will send us some images of the fitment issues and the brackets. We will make sure you are all sorted before the PCS GTG.

    Still waiting for an update on this. Not looking good for getting something sorted before PCS GTG. Had really wanted Heat Exchanger done prior to remap and pulley. If I cant get the HE done prior to remap and pulley would I need it remapping again if I get the HE added afterwards?
