ETS Installed... Sorta

EDIT: Fully Installed Now!

Started installing my ETS intercooler from GS tonight. Took me way too long to get the bumper off, cuz i'm retarded. But made it past that hurdle, to find the hose clamps on the existing intercooler were rusted to shit... had to cut those with some snips. got the intercooler lined up and test fitted. had to raise the oil cooler (i think) but no big deal there... slides right in, very good fit. which is amazing, considering the sheer size of this thing.

cept now i have to wait till morning to finish, because i have no hose clamps

pics so far (excuse the bad quality)... i will update tomorrow after completion / test drive

before...



after...



thanks to everyone at genuinesaab for being so helpful in this process... looks like everything is going to work out ok

EDIT: Below are the new pictures with the ETS completely in. Wow, this thing is sweet. pulls so much harder now, and looks incredible. Well worth the time and money



before (with bumper)


after (with bumper)

how did you move the oil cooler? that was the only mod you had to make to fit it right (i'm thinking of getting that one too now )?

You don't have to do anything for the ETS. The oil cooler stays in it's place.

well the oil cooler is all run with hard piping, but its still a little flexible. and the bracket that it mounts to just uses two holes (one over the other). so i took the bottom hole of the cooler and lined it up with the top hole of the bracket, giving you about a half inch extra height for the IC. so you're only using one of the two bolts, but the hard piping holds in well in place. make sense?

That ETS looks identical to my MP Performance....same supplier?

I can relate to the hose clamp problem...one of mine stripped during the install.

Now get the software....you won't believe how it will transform the car. I found that the IC and 3 DP V2 robbed some of my acceleration on the highway. Nordic Stage 3+ fixed that BIG time!!!
