      Question XC90 intercooler questions(s)

      It's kind of an if/then question.

      Are the intercoolers for the xc90 T6 and the xc90 2.5T the same?

      If they are not, do you see any proplem with using a T6 intercooler in a 2.5T?

      If they are the same, am I safe to assume that the intercooler of the 2.5T can handle a turbo bump (ie., 16T turbo)?

      Thanks!
      05 S40 T5 fwd
      Elevate IC, intake pipe, silicone hoses, CBT, TCV, tune & torque mount
      Spec SMF, Snabb shorth throw shifter & s60r clutch
      Viva cross drilled/slotted rotors, EST DP & cat back
      I definitely need some sticky summer tires. To be continued.....

      We haven't tested it, but based on Volvo parts look up information the intercoolers appear to be the same.
