Okay, I'll try to fix those pictures tonight! I'll also try to get a clean datalog with the PR.

The foot is horrible (swollen, bruised, and bleeding). I ended up dropping a 3 ton jack on the other foot and stepping on a fire ant hill washing my car later that day too. All happened with bare feet.

My FMIC wasn't angled at all. I noticed it was hitting the bumper beam at first causing it to angle, but it straightened out once I moved it back. I was along, so grabbed the floor jack noted above to raise it into position. I also used the old hairspray trick to help lube the couplers during install which helped me a ton.
The only real issue I had was fitting the 90deg elbow coupler onto my lower charge pipe. I had to remove my lower chargepipe, heat up the coupler, then force it on to the piping.

I saved the pieces of the coupler I cut off just in case someone asked how much I had to cut, so I'll measure that tonight.

Yepp im the same guy.
Are you talking about the ic or the couplers?
The ic is clearly not a cast one, see attached image regarding that they forgot to flush/clean it...

Tbh im fairly certain that the reason mine is sitting in an angle is due to the Turbo outlet coupler is messed up. But I don't want to pull the whole ic down and try and source a new coupler just yet..

The intercooler end tanks are cast, the intercooler core is not.

No problem, send me the pictures in email and I can take a look. I've installed so many of them I should be able to see an issue.

I had a track day with the new 7.5" Race intercooler. And what a difference!!!! Pushing 20psi on stock turbos for 20min on track and my IATs were only 15-20 above ambient. What a beast this thing is. Worth an upgrade from 7" intercooler. No timing drops at all. On steet IATs seem to drop going into a pull. Very nice!

I swear by it every time as well. It's such a big improvement it's very underrated IMO.

Also the only IC you can get a matching 3" cold pipe for to keep it 3" all the way to the throttle body.

Hmm, it is advertised as "includes 3" lower charge pipe" maybe it tapers to 2.5''? I don't recall mine tapering at all when I installed it. It's not a major issue either way.

Either IC seems to be the way to go. I do like your diverter plate on the inlet.

You'd have to check with them. Last I heard they include a 2.5" J pipe. We offer both, the 3" lets you stay 3" all the way to the throttle body.

I already knows that to fit the race intercooler some portions of the bumper needs to be trimmed. I have a OEM M-tech bumper, does it also fits on mine?

None of the actual bumper needs to be trimmed, just a lot of the plastic lying underneath.

can't wait to install this IC, I would also like to order the 3" J pipe. Does the 3" fit for an AT car with the transmission heat exchanger ? (just below the radiator)

Yes it does, as I have the AT and this FMIC with 3" J pipe.
I would HIGHLY suggest unscrewing the trans heat exchange from the radiator shroud to give you some more wiggle room, then reinstall it once the piping is all connected.

I see from your signature that you have a 135...may not be exactly same room as mine, even tough you might have less room than a 335.

anyone with a 335 AT with the 3" J pipe?

I don't know if there was a N55 thread for this thing. I couldn't find it doing a quick search. Sorry.

Hi, I'm finally getting around to installing this monster on my N55 E93. Cut cut cut cut....

In shroud that I'm cutting to get this thing to fit, I have a sensor. I think it's the ambient air temp sensor? Well, it no longer has home. Any tips on where to mount this now?

Zip tie to the bumper support or anything close by. Lots of places.
