ETS IC installed

this week i recieved my ETS IC, i don't remember the dimensions but this thing is pretty big. i took out the vig IC and placed the ETS in its place, it seemed pretty tight but due able. I get the left hose in which i find out that the hoses are a pain in the ass to get on a 2.5" outlet. I get to the left side get the hoses on and.... oh no time to trim away the radiator a little bit. with the extra thickness of the hose and clamp it was to big to pass threw the stock hole, i took away about 1/2 and it worked fine. i was wondering what i was going to do to mount it due to not having any mounting brackets but i soon found out this IC is so big that the bumber, A/C condenser, oil cooler lines, and A/C lines hold it in very nicely. This IC is the biggest you can fit on a ng900 or og9-3 unless you go with wider and no fog lights.

I took it for a drive with out the bumper on, just incase a hose blew off or i needed to adjust something. I drove it pretty hard for 10-15 min, i parked it in my garage touched the IC and still ice cold. Very impressd with this IC definitly worth the money. pics up on sun. when im back at school.

The ETS stuff is definitely pretty nice. I'm more then pleased with the one in my 9k...big difference between that and a stock one.

I love it mine, other than my BPC being messed up it pulls harder, smoother, longer, and cools down much much faster than the viggen IC. Havent had any complaints about it yet.
