You could go thicker but that one's probably fine. I don't think you would notice the difference between that and a thicker one. Installing it is pretty easy, in theory - remove the old, replace the new. You'll need a bunch of silicone connections or cheaper rubber ones if you want. When I first did mine, I just bought a cheap kit on ebay for $50 and it came with a bunch of shit rubber ones that worked just fine til I changed my turbo. Then those all exploded.

The reason for not going with a thicker IC is rumour that most colling is done in the first inch and also i wanna KEEP MY FOGS!

sounds awsome. I care about my fogs because i spent 40$ on 3000k hids for them and yellow tinting them. Chris did your piping go through the stock locations or did you re-route it and also any idea what sort of pieces you used or any good piping kit?

I just installed one nearly identical (28x7x2.5). It's a bit of a nasty job on the NG, the hot side is the hardest part. I used a couple 2.5" -> 2.0" 90deg silicone reducers coming off the ends and needed to order an extra 90 deg for the hot side also reusing the stock hoses. I cut a corner out of the fan shroud to free up more room on the hot side, I also bought some 2" aluminum tubing for hose junctions.

Here's some photos which may help, I took more shots of all the angles if you need anything else.

I ordered two 90deg reducers 2.5"-2.0"diam. from siliconeintakes.com and also bought another 2" 90deg hose locally.

The cold side only required the 90deg. reducer off the end tank connected to some aluminum tubing (about 6" long) which then connects to the stock hose.
