Whoa, that is HOT!!

I am pretty sure you will see a good drop. Throwing a bit of methanol in the mix will help, too.

PMed you. . .the group buy is over unfortunately, but I tried to work with you on price as best as I can. I will not be able to honor the group buy price, however.

Will there be a possibility for another one in the future? If not, any special holiday deals to hope for?

**UPDATE**

We just installed our first one at the shop today!! I can confirm there is NO CUTTING REQUIRED. That being said, I would probably recommend you remove the shroud that presses up against the front of the intercooler. I will post pictures of what I'm talking about tomorrow. I think for airflow, it would be a good idea, and I'm almost 100% positive the piece that you can remove is secured by bolts, so it should be reversible when you want to put it back to stock. We did NOT remove this piece as we were looking to stay 100% stock as possible. Just wanted to let everyone know that, as advertised, you do not need to cut.

If you're planning on tackling this install yourself, make sure those o-rings on the OEM couplers are greased up nice; this will help big time! Of course, you can PM me, call the shop, or e-mail us for help!

As I said, install pictures will be posted tomorrow.

**UPDATE**

Here is a few pictures from the installation on Mdawood's VO 1M.

Here you will see some comparison shots from a coupe different angles:







HERE IS A VERY IMPORTANT PICTURE FOR INSTALLATION

I highlighted the piece, in red, that needs to be pried out of the way for installation. Again, you do NOT need to cut or remove this piece. . .but if you want more airflow, I believe this piece can be removed without cutting, as it appears like it is bolted in. This customer did not want it removed, so we left it in place.



Forge intercooler being installed, again please make sure you use good grease on the OEM rubber seals that will slide into the Forge intercooler, I suggest white lithium grease, used liberally.



Fits well for being a good deal bigger than stock, and not needing any trimming of any sort.



And a couple finished pictures, you can not tell anything's been done. You can also see the shroud that can be removed flanking the new intercooler. If it were my personal car, I would remove it.





Hope this helps some of you DIYers out there!

Let us know how it turns out!

We will be installing another one in house in a few short weeks, if no one's posted one by then, we absolutely will.

The shroud is very restrictive for sure, I'd like to see if gone. . .but I understand if someone just wants to keep everything there like OEM.

Good to know, Frank, thx. I'll def be installing it with the shroud removed especially if it is a bolt on/off piece.

IMO little point to add an aftermarket FMIC only to have it operate below full potential because of a restrictor piece (especially if it is one that's an easy on/easy off). Restrictor plates are for NASCAR

Just did a little more research, and it looks like it is indeed a removable piece.

See number 16 in this picture. It's part number 51 74 8 051 604



Hope this sheds a little more light!

I agree that it restricts the flow and I certainly dont want that. My concern isnt with cutting or not looking OEM my concern is removing it might yield an unfinished or incomplete look.

I have no issue with cutting or modding parts, I just want the final look to look "finished"
