Inter cooler Install Question

Would it be possible to remove the stock intercooler without cutting off the factory clamps? When I installed ETS 5" on my E92 coupe I didn't think there was a way to remove the piping without cutting off the factory clamp.

Thanks,

If you're lucky, you can get a flathead screwdriver into the seam / joint of the clamp and get it to open. Cutting it is easier, in my opinion. In any case, those BMW clamps are one-time use only. I'm still awake so feel free to text me if you are attempting anything now!

Nope. Just cut it off, when it comes time to go stock use a t-bolt clamp.
