The intercooler somes with silicone piping to replace the flimsy OEM elbows. these need to be cut off (there is an iron clamp that needs to be but with a power tool or saw). The intercooler didn't line up on the passenger side screw hole. It took as a lot of wedging and stretching to get it lined up. The intercooler is held up by two screws and two plastic clips. The clips helped to guide the intercooler to match up the holes, contrary to what their instruction manual suggests. It took us well over 3 hours to install it, with another hour or so to remove the old one.

I'll put the car on the dyno soon to see if we made any power improvements (in combination with the CAI's).
