Hey Paul,

When I was looking at doing this it was my understanding from Osh that the Aftercooler kit would work just as well on the Dinan system as the RMS. Since the RMS is basicly a exact copy of the Dinan.

The parts I know of are the air-water cooler exchange box, a new thin radiator with two electric racing fans and the plumbing.

Be warned however, if you have the Dinan warrently, this will void it.

I know....Osh told me the same....The negatives are: no local support and few dinan platforms who have done it...Sure, they say its the same as the RMS platform...Except, we all know the software is different....And, I'm sure its not identical in other aspects as well. Someone told me they've only sold 4 of the intercoolers! I find this hard to believe, but lets face it, if I want to hear of owners' experience with the Dinan Vortech kits, there's no shortage of info out there....But just try and get the same info on the RMS intercooler! Theres just not a large installed base....Combine this fact, with all the problems Dinan had developing his own intercooler retrofit, and I'm sure you can understand the caution with which I'm approaching it...If you hear any more, let me know....thanks.
