Rubber ends where removed prior to installation. I believe you just need a better clamp than the stock worm clamp.. I will keep you all posted on my results. But over all happy with my stage 2 with stock catback 292whp/320lb-ft.... Loads of fun to drive...

The rubber ends are there to prevent cracking the stock plastic intercooler I assume and are useless when attempting to install this or any perrin-like tmic. Also, adjust the throttle body coupler. It may provide the correct angle required to get the tmic to fit. If it's way off, it's welded poorly and/or you need to clock the turbo (which will suck)

Just my 2 cents.

Did your vacuum numbers change after you installed the larger TMIC? Should they remain unchanged? I was seeing 9.7-9.8 on my stock intercooler, today I'm seeing 9.5-9.6 with the Torque solution TMIC... Leak? This is using the Access port...

So I just got the OK from IIR to send my Torque solutions TMIC intercooler back for store credit. I am very happy so far with IIR's customer service... Turns out the BOV flange is not machined right and i am not getting a proper seal all around... Meaning the BOV does not sit flush with the intercooler flange... The bolts are tight, but still have a leak... Hopefully they get me a good price on an AVO TMIC for all my troubles :-)... I will keep you all posted on the outcome of this...

So after upping the boost and the timing, we ran into the same issue... Seems like the unit is less efficient that the stock unit. I can run the intercooler at no more than 18psi... What did you end up doing? This you end up buying the avo?

He Swaped out the torqued solutions with a Perrin and all the knock went way. So if he can't tune my knock out I will be looking at going AVO tmic.
