Couple projects over the last week. Received the XDI-35 and installed it. Currently running the initial E40 tune and doing some logs. Brad said my IAT2 is getting too high so you can guess what the next project is (no spray). I like doing some fabrication vs. bolt on so front mount it is. Due to the split grill style and good on the MKS the upper front mount style would either not work or would just look hacked out IMO so I'm going for the lower side. I've found a couple paths for piping that may work so started prepping the bumper this evening. Still have some cutting to do. Will have almost 100% exposure of the fins in the opening which should be great. I am also aware that the turbos are at their limit due to altitude so some new ones are much sooner on the horizon once the IC is in. Also have an ethanol monitor showing up this week.

Hell yeah get after it!  I just recently opened up my impact bar for some more air, and two sections of pipe were a bit too long, causing unwanted bends in my 90 silicone elbow, and also extra tension in general to the y pipe.  I blew a clamp to the y pipe yesterday.  So after reducing the pipe length in two sections, it went back together with less tension with plenty of silicone over the pipe connections.  It appears to be working even better than before but I'll need more than just a 3rd gear pull to verify it...but 14 below ambient is awesome.

There is a TON of room on under the bumper rebar. You could fit a pretty large cooler under there, otherwise you could try to do one above but that hood might need a speed hole in it.

Yeah some of these sections of piping will be a little tight. I laid under the car for a good 30 minutes to triple check the route I thought would work. For the y on mine I went with a silicone 2 inch to 2.5 inch merge and it has a less steep angle than the metal ones so I'm hoping that helps.

Yeah trying to avoid the top side as much as possible. That dip in the front of the hood really makes it hard to do it cleanly. As for intercooler I'm starting with the TR8L and then will gauge if more will be needed once the new turbos are on.

Right on, I went with the TR8C just for the slightly better spacing of air, works really well.

Yeah with what I'm assuming is the adaptive cruise sensor box on the drivers side on the lower end I had to do the tanks with bottom feed instead of center so I could clear it.

Its going to be so cool man.  Can't wait to see it when it's completed.

Intercooler pipes arrived today and I also started reforming the lower grille panels so that they look like they belong. Once done they should curve nicely right back towards the intercooler making a clean look (if the intercooler mounts how I hope...)

Intercooler is in and leaks seem to have been dealt with. I thought I had tightened everything enough, but was wrong so disassembled, and retightened everything and feels much better now. Need to do some full logged pulls now for Brad to see what things look like and see what sort of cooling it's actually doing.

What are the dimensions on the intercooler?
