335i intercooler on pre facelift 120D

Hi guys !

I tried to find a topic with the search button but could not find any information regarding that a 335D or 335i would fit pre facelift 120D.
The diameter of the IC hose connections are 70mm, my hoses are 51mm, so that won't fit.
I came up with an idea to use bayonet hose couplers. ... --600.html

Type F is a coupler (68.3mm towards 54 mm) which fits the IC and my hose when I cut the connections off and clamp it.

Yesterday I tried to fit the 335i IC from underneath but unfortunately one side got blocked by the front axle..

One other guy here on the forum Romak, did even put a larger IC in his car.
So it can fit !

My idea was to take off the front bumper and air duct (dont know how to remove the air duct btw), trim some plastic away like Romak did and slide IC on to its place.

Did anyone tried this? To slide the IC through the air duct hole?

Greetings from Holland!
