New IC!!! :(

But it got damaged in shipping.









I had shipping insurance, but it just sucks this guy is in Canada so I have to wait like 1.5 weeks just for one way on the package. Might not get it in before SOC.

Wait from Canada. Was that the guy selling the MP intercoolers? Sucks to see that man.

Hate when those kinda things happen. Wasn't there enough packing to protect the IC?

I just got back the Canon rebel XT from service, thank god it had packing around it, one corner of the box was crumpled in.

looks easily repairible. i'd try and round that inlet out and don't even worry about the bend in the bottom of it. the ic in my spg was like that too from shipping - it works just fine.

Bah, take the insurance money, and muscle some silicone couplers onto the bent fittings. Or cut them off and have a local guy weld on new pipes to the end tanks.

Doesn't look too bad, and if you get an insurance claim, then free FMIC

you can easily buy a tube expander from harbor freight and make those round again.

Of if you're handy with a hammer and dolly you could do it that way.

Take the ins money and take the IC if possible!

The guy is sending me a new one tomorrow morning, and I'll just ship this one back to him. So at least it will be 1.5 weeks, not 3!

This will be the first upgrade of any kind to the power, except GS open air intake. So stock.

If it's an MP unit, Matt will go out of his way to make you a happy camper.

I bought one from him as well.

Yep that is him.

Partial related side note, he is selling these nice IC's on ebay for $299 which is a bargain.
