Just got to installing it today. Took me 3 1/2 hours with breaks in between to get hydrated and cool down. I don’t have access to a garage so I did this in my driveway on dirt and gravel in the sun…not fun. I should of refreshed the PRL on the intercooler but I was over it lol.

Any issues with boost leaks or was everything good to go? Heard some people having issues.

Did you have to muscle your aluminum cold side pipe to match the mounting locations? I had a really hard time with that, needed a helper to force it into position while I fed the screws into place. I noticed your cold side pipe that mates with the intercooler is a little off center (slightly upward on the right side of the coupler). I ran into the same problem and thought it was just me! That whole piece is mandrel bent and hand welded. So those manufacturing variations happen. A few nuances but ehh it works… so far. Lol

I made sure to spray every coupler with a bit of hair spray and tighten them firmly, the last thing I want is blowing one off and having to remove my bumper and other parts to find a boost leak. FK8 Clinic had issues with his 90 elbow at the throttle body blowing off but that dude is running +28 psi. I plan to go there with MHI’s stage 2 in the future so hopefully it isn’t an issue.

So far it’s been good though! I can def hear the turbo sucking in air once I removed the massive resonator and installed this piping. Especially when climbing up a hill or accelerating while already at highway speeds. Sounds pretty neat tbh, stock intercooler resonator does a good job at canceling those frequencies, I was surprised.

It was slightly off but I did manage to get the fastener bolts started and tightened all the way after everything was in and clamped. The pictures I took is with all the pipe,fittings and clamps not tightened so the process was not quite complete I forgot to take pictures of it when it was really done and fitted properly. I made sure that I could feel the aluminum pieces on the silicone fittings where the pipe should stop and clamped/torqued where I felt comfortable with. I did notice the turbo spool a little louder without the intercooler resonator as well which was a plus because I missed the sound of the open k&n intake. Fk8 clinic will probably be running more boost than that after he gets the p600 so let’s see how that goes lol.

whats your experience without the resonator? I ask cause Dan villa in YT didn’t like the delete.

Before PRLs charge pipe system came out I had the resonator delete with the stock IC piping system and it made a little noticeable difference in sound but really didn’t feel any hp gains in terms of power.
