    Default Larger Intercooler + Silicone hoses/ Pipes

    I need a larger than stock intercooler for my Defender 110. Also need all related silicone hoses + pipes etc.

    Are these available any where in Pak? Dubai ? USA?

    Assalamwalikum,

    You can find 'em at Shershah or you can even try the perfromance shops here is KHI, they might have large ones...

    Racer..many thanks for the links, I am in touch with these companies. Notice that they are all UK based, I am at this point seeking USA or DUbai based company.

    By the way how can I edit my post ? instead of writing "larger" , I have written "larer"...

    Maybe the admin can correct it.

    Racer, thanks for the help..and no need to promise..

    Also can you share your experience on having double shocks? I am seriously thinking of having twin shocks mounted on both front and rear. Do you have any experience in this regards?

    Racer,

    I wanted to know how the set up works. I have been told that one set of shocks work as "primary" shocks and the second as "secondry". Some one else told me that the load is divided equally. So I am not sure how the shocks are mounted and how the load is divided.

    Right now I have ARB Emu set up, should the second set of shocks also be same as what I have ? or can I go with something more tough like this

    http://www.4wdconcepts.co.nz/Tough_Dog/Shocks/tough_dog_shocks.htm

    Or Bilisteins? Rancho?

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Regards

    The setup I saw had a equally divided load type set up. If it is a Primary/ scecondary type setup they should be on different height controls.

    Hi Racer,

    Did you up load two or one pic? I can only see one, the equal load pic.

    Anyway, I have written to ARB and will call them tomorrow and find out what they suggest in regards to twin shock mount.

    I am ok with both set up, equal or unequal. In fact given that my current shocks are fairly soft, it maybe better if I go for more of the same, rather than introduce hard shocks on the suspension, as that may result in the hard shocks doing all the work.

    Regards

    Racer..the primary/ secondry set up looks complicated.
    I will visit Khan Motors tomorrow and ask them if they have done this kind of work on any 4x4.

    Regarding using two different shocks, I also would not advise it as it make one work harder then the other, as you mentioned.

    Racer.. I think equally divided load set up is what I will go for...but first need to find shock mounts that can accmodate two shocks..
