    Most disturbing thing about that one is the fact Nicely already brought up about the pipe length - both sides have half a metre excess piping.
    The other thing is that the 'L' shape right before the throttle body isnt really conductive to even flow moving into the throttle body. Sure the air is going to be under pressure and it *shouldn't* make too much difference - but I will still avoid an install like that.

    It is possible to get one with pipes which follow the same route as the the WMIC pipes. The cold pipe goes down and doubles back over the top of the cooler to the exit. Obviously, the pipework is ever longer...

    Nicely, what size is your intercooler? and do you need to shave the reinforcement?

    600x300x75. The bumper needed shaving, the undertray trimming and the chassis legs needed *cough* 'adjusting'. Oh, and I lost my standard fogs...

    I got my FMIC halfway on yesterday.

    I didn't have to trim the chassis legs (but it was bloody close).
    But I have to trim the the reinforcemenct bar for it to go back on.
    And the front bumper needs trimming to. haven't checked the undertray yet, but I suppose I need to work on that to.

    Think I need to get something better than a Dremel tool for all the cutting

    Ah, now that's reminded me. It needed about 1mm filing off the rear sections of the reinforcement bar around the edge of the cooler (two contact points). Nothing major though, hence why I'd forgotten it.

    When I fitted mine I used a Dremel to cut my bumper to size and also to shave the chassis legs. I set one on fire in the process though. Had to take it back to the shop and claim Id just been cutting up airfix models.
