This is perfect! It is exactly what I wanted. No trimming! Uses factory piping! It looks pretty much OEM and all this at a great price without sacrificing the quality!!
Thanks for the review! I was going crazy trying to figure out which intercooler to buy and it was consuming my free time so much! Now I will focus on more important things in life!

Add me to the list. This one is next for me. I got some logs from Wagner but was still on the fence as their log had a 20 f rise if I interpreted German correctly. Anyway after your DIY and logs I'm sold

FYI - A cool trick to put the FMIC in yourself without straining is to get a peice of wood and lift it up with your jack. Make sure the wood is close to the length of the FMIC for leaning. Works like a charm.

Is there any option for this to come in a polished finish?

Also, when the fins get pelted with rocks, I'm wondering if that nice black finish will start to look spotty.

I have heard that the paint does kinda come off after a while...there was a guy on here that had one 2 years and it was flaking. IMO - if it starts to come off, I'll polish it myself lol.

I didn't see an option on the website for a polished finish. I kinda like how stealthy it is, though!

Hello leroi,
Right now we only have a limited quantity on coolers in stock and due the bad euro exchange rate and expensive shipping cost from Germany, there is no room for a group buy at this time.
We are starting to produce the cooler in our California shop in arround 6-8 weeks, this will save some cost and we could think about a group buy...
I hope this sound ok to you.

Thanks.

Sincerely,
Wagner Tuning Inc.

The engineering and design that went into this look great. Like someone else mentioned, there's something very very familiar about it...

Glad to be in Europe . As a comparison to ETS, is this easier to install?
