  1. Hello everyone, I did some research already but I still cannot find the answer to my question. I am still a bit green when it comes to this topic so feel free to redirect me to another post. I have a 2003 Toyota Hilux 270VX with a 2.5L D4D 2KD-FTV engine without an intercooler. I was planning to add a bullbar, air snorkel and some bigger tyres on my pickup and wanted to get some more power from the engine (as it will be doing more work). As it is I already feel that it is a bit laggy from standstill and was wondering if adding an intercooler would help. I might consider adding a chip as well. Having said that, should i just get the chip (any product suggestions)? Should i get a top mount or a front mount interooler? I heard that top mount would have less turbo lag which is better for my case but considering that I will mostly be doing city driving with it, i was worried about heat soak after a while. Then again not sure if the snorkel with the front mount will cause even more lag. Should you have any questions please ask Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
