Since I did a body lift on my Grand Vitara TD, it's been bothering my that my top of engine mounted intercooler is no longer directly under the air scoop in the bonnet. I considered raising the intercooler up 60mm to match the body lift, but then realised I would also have to extend all the pipework too, which I didn't fancy, so in the end I made a 60mm deep extension cowl to fit on top of the intercooler.

I don't know if it's my imagination or if the cold air which is now directed through the intercooler in a similar way as it its supposed to be, is actually making a difference or not, but the truck feels more responsive and on a recent 250 mile journey with it fitted, it was a fair bit more economical than it was before.
