VRSF 7" FMIC Question

To those who installed, how did you go about coupling the driver side with the lower charge pipe provided? It seems awfully hard to clamp the bottom half of the lower charge pipe to the curved rubber arm that connects to the intercooler. I think Im leaking from that spot and thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance.

You need to keep the connection at the upper charge pipe loose to maneuver the lower correctly. Also keep your lower fmic mount bolts loose until all snugged up on piping.

Not vrsf specific, but hope it helps.

Baby hands.

But seriously..
Like mentioned, keep the couplings loose.
Once everything is aligned\connected properly, tighten down.
I was also fortunate enough to have a smaller driver with an elbow.
