I bought an IE intercooler because I like the engineering that went into the directional vanes located inside the intercooler and the careful measured performance of IAT. Do the chinese do engineering studies like that? Would you fly on a Chinese copy of a Cessna or the real thing??

I think for $300 it is unbeatable.


This was taken from another thread, but just think, if hed have used a REAL intercooler like IE or APR, those runs would have definitely been 9 sec runs!

I don't know, that's what I was asking I can tell you the pictures are exactly the same as the CSK ads, identical, just a bit enlarged and the logo differs. People here have bought from both sellers (hisinauto2015 and au2parts2015) and I haven't seen any complaints, so it looks like it...

Yes im sure IC is the reason for those times, just like Im sure everyone cares about 1/4mi times.

You missed the point of his post somewhat... by a quarter mile Id say.

He was sarcastic in re: 9s and IE and APR.

Well damn. I am thinking about using a shiny and adhesive such as RTV to "wedge" the rad clips in place. My radiator actually contacted both the AC hose and my throttle body connector.

The contact actually cracked the connector housing. Gotta figure out if I can get the connector replaced. Still functions fine though.

So I decided to try JB Plastic Weld. It is a "low-psi hold" filler/epoxy that is a 2-part putty that is activated as you combine the layers. I placed some underneath the radiator clips and on both sides of the clips to fill the voids (hoping that the rad clips wouldn't be able to compress when large bumps are hit allowing the rad to move back). I also filled the area next to the large alignment tabs on the radiator below the clips.

Will keep the thread updated if this functioned well or failed.

It has been a year and a half since I installed this intercooler. Nice to have with the weather starting to warm up. Thanks again to OldschoolMK7 for doing the initial leg work and write up.

Fitment of this thing is inconsistent, you'll have to measure and decide for yourself.

I got lucky and didn't have to file down either side, but it seems most have had to file at least the driver's side. If I had to file I would have used an angle grinder.

I had to file down both sides substantially. If I knew ahead of time how much it was going to need removed I would have gotten my Dremel out. Unfortunately, because I didn't bother to measure it first I just ended up working it by hand with a bastard file until it fit.

currently my pegs measure 29mm on each side.. but this is going into an s3 so not sure if it's different.. if I can prep it before it goes on that would be ideal.
