Looks very nice.... all the piping looks very simple and easy to install.... what did this set up cost you and was there any custom work or welding needed? Or was everything a pretty straight forward install?
Yep . This was just a pic of the first day I got the brackets complete and installed the i.c for fitmentThe first picture still has the factory IC and the hot pipe upgrade installed.
IC is the Mishimoto J-line
Yes. this is a very straight install. The way this was installed can be the final product for anyone looking to attack this install. I am just going a couple steps further and getting the pipes made into a one piece design and power coated also. I will also be coating the i.c with depression coating to help it during hotter temperatures.Looks very nice.... all the piping looks very simple and easy to install.... what did this set up cost you and was there any custom work or welding needed?

I have the specs somewhere around here. but I you look up mishimoto j-line you will be able to read full specs. Yes you can do an oil cooler where the stock i.c is, there is plenty of room. I will be adding that down the line. The only issue is if you have a FMCAI like Jason that wont work. You will have to place is on the other sidewow.. your pictures make me really believe in the DIY for the FMIC... im assuming they were taking at different points because the first or 2nd picture looks weird with the tubing routing
Just as Jason mentioned. the first picture was just fitment of the I.C
I couldn't believe how perfect this thing fit. I also have the lower shield on. Just takes a little pressure to keep it up to bolt it.
what size intercooler and do you think there is enough room to mount an oil cooler to the bumper bar around where the stock intercooler was?
well that just gave me a good chuckleYou have brought me to my knees 'gradamus.
I'll have to start putting together the funds
Yes. the map flange is mounted on the stock i.cThe map flange. Did you have to move it BC of the fmic?
Everything with the setup is running great.that's a real nice set up.. and updates on how the FMIC is going?
Some quick questions. Has the increase in the volume of your intercooler system ..had any adverse effects.. And what performance have you seen from this mod.. Have you had to adjust your tune with the new front mount..
Just as James has said, I did have to get a retune to address the addition of the new FMICYes he has had a tune set up for the front mount . Also the ecu does know the volume of the factory intercooler system, so we have seen a front mount run a bit funky on other 1.6t gamma engines.
