Well, it arrived at my parent's house, does that count?

"Hey, do you need me to send this out in the next box?"
"No no no no no thanks I don't want that going through the military mail system!"

I'll be able to configure some mods the day I bring it home. :P The deal was good and I find having a piece of hardware like this VIN-locked to be personally offensive, so the new 'enthusiast' ones weren't happening.

Awesome upgrade!

From my research I found that the AMS is one of the very few intercoolers to incorporate vanes in the end tank to channel air flow toward the upper section of the core.


Cool stuff!

I got this:

Correct! It looks great and I feel it will be a huge contribution to lowering my IAT's.

Congrats on your JB4 upgrade!
