But this turns out to not even be the biggest probelm. As you can see, I went to test-fit this and it does not fit.
There are two problems:
1. It hits the intake manifold runner and it prevents me from bringing in the driver's side of the intercooler another 1/2"
2. If I try to fudge the position by tilting the valve more towards the driver's side, at a sharper angle, it hits the throttle position sensor.
Right now, I am looking for photos you may have posted of successful installations, to see how you did it.
Which reminds me why I recirculated the full-size Synapse towards the driver's fender.
In the photo below, I have to bring the intercooler in kinda half towards the hole on the bracket, there's another hole there.
