Cp-e Intercooler

Has anyone purchased the cp-e intercooler for their 1M, and if so, what do you think of the product?

My thoughts ; the end tank and weld seems to have good quality. The added cooler should aid in the cooling system ...

Price is higher or rather the highest among other I/c brands for the 1M.

i just installed mine. that is a tight fit in there. it truly maximized whatever space was there. the quality is very good. i bought the added oil cooler but chose not to install it. seems like they outsourced the oil cooler from china and i wasn't happy with the quality. anyway, after taking the car out on the track, my oil temps were reasonable.

now, as to performance, i installed catless downpipes and midpipes together with the FMIC. i noticed more lag, feels like there's less power below 3000 rpm. but the revs climb faster and feels stronger up top. maybe a new tune for all the mods will make things better. but so far, i think i'm satisfied with the changes.

I know of a local 1M that has one on. He is FBO and has tracked the car extensively already, no problems.

CPE looks like they make decent FMIC. Design and welds look good. I'd get one minus the CPE logo...

I have it. So far so everything works pretty good. No cutting involve either but its a tight fitment.
