Installing my intercooler tomorrow/Saturday if needed and had a couple questions for those who have installed their intercoolers. <p>1. Does the evolve intercoolers not come with any hardware like the bell fmic?<br>2. For those who have the evolve intercooler can the plastic grill still fit in the front bumper? Id like to use the frame of it and make a mesh grill over my intercooler.<p>I have the bell fmic instructions and have read them 4 or 5 times now so I have an idea what to do, any tips/advice? I also have all the tools listed in the bell instructions laying out already since I figured they require the same tools. <p>Thanks

Re: installing evolve intercooler (SDS40)

The intercooler utilizes most of the stock hardware for mounting, but any other hardware you may need will be supplied with the kit. Yes, the plastic grill still fits in the front bumper with the intercooler installed. This is the main reason why I went with Evolve in the first place. The bell is nice, but I refuse to do too many things to my car that I can not change back to stock if necessary, and I draw the line at cutting my bumper...<p>My advice is take your time. I don't want to say it's an easy install, but it's an easy install. I was done in a little over 1 1/2 hours... Any other questions, feel free to post.
