Does the same Code 3 intercooler fit both the Sedan/Coupes. Is there much cutting/modifying?

It fits both coupe and sedan and there is no cutting of the bumper necessary, you just need to trim the OEM FMIC housing..........my top end with this front mount is amazing and is a great addition to the JB3......the JB3 adapts well with this product..........

I think the Spearco FMIC is right around 1200, not sure on the oil cooler. PM Harold at HP AUTOWERKS.......tell him Kyle sent you, he will hook you up with a good deal and I am sure they have an oil cooler they may sell also.......

Honestly...don't throw money at a problem until you know what the problem is. Did you overheat water or oil? Was overheating even the problem???

Yesterday I threw a limp mode during one session, almost at the start. Both my oil and water temperatures were nowhere near overheating. It could have been a low boost target limp mode, a misfire, or any one of a million other possibilities. Frankly I ran the entire session in limp mode because I was still faster than the people around me on track and the car was running fine (albeit down on power). A shut-off and restart cured it.

During my last session yesterday the ambient temperature was near 100. My oil never went over 270 (limp is at 314) and water never went over 100C. Neither temperature was even close to causing a limp mode. I do believe that running 100% water in the radiator helped, as did the Redline Water Wetter. I also took the kidney grills out which might (or might not) have helped.

Until I get some idea what caused the limp mode I have no clue how to address it. To that end the car will visit the dealer this week for an analysis.

Buying either an IC or oil cooler without some demonstrable proof that either product would solve your particular issue is just dumb.
