    Intercooler piping

    Hi I was just wondering how much it would cost to get the intercooler piping fitted on my ca18det by a mechanic

    Completely depends on who you get to do it, what they’re making it out of and how complex it is. Only real way to know is to get quotes or use silicone joiners and metal pipe off eBay etc.

    What even does 'done' mean? Made? Painted?

    Welcome regardless.

    Ohhh, so you have pipe work already but just needs fitting? It's very straight forward, could you not have a go yourself?

    If not you'll just be at the hourly labour rate of the garage you choose.

    I'm not sure how to fit it as this would be my first time working on a engine and I want to make sure that it's done right.

    Your best bet is to go and ask a local mechanic how much.
    Your second best bet is to put pictures of your engine bay and intercooler kit up, also let us know if it's a kit that goes through the battery tray or not.
    Your third best bet is it to look at the instructions and give it a go yourself.
    I know not everyone is as comfortable around spanners and sockets as other, but with these cars, you wanna learn how to do stuff yourself or you will be constantly paying out for others to do it for you which will get very expensive.
