Needed to put a bigger FMIC on for more flow so I purchased a Godspeed intercooler core to go with my current setup. The old dimmensions were 26 widex6 tallx2.5" thick , the new is 30x10x3" .
I had to hack alot of my bumper core support out in order to fit the new FMIC behind it.
As always I like to keep it stealthy. Purchased some Eastwood radiator paint to cover it up.

I still need to trim here and there to get everything perfect but the bumper is on.

Looks good Chris [up] Were you able to keep your secondary air pump with that piping or did you remove it?

I removed it over 2 years ago. Im sure you can keep it if you are careful with the pipe routing.

Havent had the time to test it out yet. I literally slapped it on yesterday then headed back down to school so I didnt wanna blow a pipe from here to there. Ill give it a go in the next few days or so, hopefully this solves my issues!

Thanks, Ill take some when I get the chance. I need to do some slight trimming to get the grills to fit perfectly on.

Looking very stealth........I've been thinking about painting my core and piping black as well.......Have you done any logs to see how the new core is working?

Not yet, I don't have a Vagcom at the moment, hopefully this weekend. Im aiming for lowered IAT's and waaay less timing pull. My logs last time were off the chart.
