Intercooler question

I tried to install my Buschur standard FMIC this weekend and the Lower pipe, also from Buschur didn't even come close to the endtank. I fiqure I have 2 options.

1. Cut the BR Lower pipe along with some steel tubing and connect them with a coupler so it will line up with the intercooler

2. Buy a different Lower pipe such as one from AMS and sell the BR pipe

What do you guys think?

Can you post up a pic? If possible, fit a section from a mandrel bend and get that welded up. The less couplers the better ($.02).

3. Call Buschur and find out what's wrong. They will remedy any problem there is, and there should be no problem with fitment, so something is borked. This is not normal.

This is the pipe that has been on my car my car since November

https://secure.buschurracing.com/cat...febf71eace05a5

The last line says that:

"This will not work with any other FMIC other than stock without possibly some slight modification."

That's pretty crappy considering that both the pipe and FMIC are from the same place and they don't fit, it doesn't sit to well with me to start cutting up a $210 dollar pipe.

Oh, so you knew those 2 parts would not mate? I thought you got an FMIC + piping kit together.

No, I figured they're both from Buschur so why won't they fit. I only checked on the website after trying to mate them together and found out that the lower pipe is not compatable. Since it was bought and installed in November I figured it wouldn't be a problem.

Take that thing to a chop saw and whack off the last bend going upwards towards the stock IC inlet location. Pick up a 2.5 stainless 45* bend and trim it up to meet the new FMIC and remaining pipe. You might be able to use a straight section. Mark it the way it needs to be welded, TIG it, slap on the coupler you have in the picture; done.
"possibly some slight modification."
