Good luck that thing was a royal pain on the ass for me but I got it done and it definitely shields the heat a lot more from the I/C.
Yeah, the intercooler was no problem, it did give me a lot of room, but i have really big hands so I pretty much scuffed the s out of my forearms and hands...but luckily I didn't strip any bolts. I will give it another shot next week with an extra pair of hands and hopefully will have better luck.
