you can get it off w/ out cutting. It is a pressed on clamp so there is a keyed line where the clamp connects to itself. If your lucky the clamp is oriented on your car where you can see and get to that keyed line. Look for the line and use a long flathead screwdriver. Drive the screwdriver under the clamp right at that line and twist....HARD. If you get the screwdriver underneath right at that clamp and twist it will release and you can just take the clamp off.

If you cant get to the connection point....then like Mr. 5 said you'll need to cut it

once you have access to those clamps you can have those unclipped and ther intercooler out in less than 5 minutes.

I've done quite a few intercooler installs at this point and only 1 car needed a clamp cut off.
