SLek Front Lip with Intercooler - will it fit?

I have a Slek front lip on my car....does anyone have a Slek front lip and an aftermarket intercooler? specifically a AA Sport.

I am worried the slek wont attach to the bumper after an aftermarket intercooler due to the slight pressure it applies on the bottom of the bumper (and thus deforming it a little)

Isn't AA sport a 5"? I would think it would slip in there without much trouble, a 7" is a tight fit, but I bet you can still mount the slek without issues. There are plenty of people on the forum with various lips and aftermarket FMICs.

The AA sport does deform it but only slightly and it's more toward the rear of the bumper. You definitely wouldn't be able to use those 3 center mounting holes unless you used flat head screws and mounted them from the top or 3M taped that area. I can take better pics of my AA sport from the bottom if you'd like and post them tomorrow.

I didn't have any issues with the alignment (tabs and screws). It does seem a tad bit low from that angle...but down here I certainly didn't want it blocking the radiator so it never concerned me as it is not obstructed.
