    Which I/C for SHO/FZ is easier

    Which I/C for SHO/FZ is easier to install and remove.

    My personal experience with one is that I have had to fight it each and everytime I needed to remove it. Which is often...

    My Riva does not fit particularly well, but since it does not use the factory pipe that goes to the TB, does not tuck up around the reverse cable I think its a bit easier (or I am faster and more used to the agony) than the R&D R4.

    The biggest pain I recall with the R&D was using that metal bend going into the TB.

    just build small 180* pipe from SV to IC and holder ,i let local exaust/motor shop do this

    from IC to TB can reuse old pipe from stock intercooler.

    The JD IC is probably your easiest for install and removal. I've had to remove my Riva IC twice to fix the damn BOV and it's a time consuming process. It's not overly hard, but just tedious as on a SHO, the valve cover has to come off as you are aware. For ease of use, I'd say the JD IC.

    Just one thing - Try to have more than the IC you have right now to compare against.

    In other words, if you only have had one IC how do you know it is easier or harder than the others?

    My Frozenboost type 12 is painful to put in and pull out, and its frigging heavy, and cost a motza to make............but it's cooling performance is pretty good (better than some of the snippets of information I've been able to gain off GH from various people).

    What I'd like to see is a data log, back to back comparisions on ski's.

    I'd love to volunteer but I don't have a week of spare time and it won't make me any money (light hearted joke about how much time it takes to R&D this type of work).

    But it would be nice to see the results and any comments from the poor sucker doing the testing as to how long/hard it was to change-over to each i/c'er.

    2 cent donation..........now back on topic.

    Even though I'm probably known as #1 JD nutswinger, I am not exaggerating in the slightest when I tell you his kit is freakin EASY to install. I know what a PITA my last kit (the one I made with a type 19) was to get in and out. What makes Dan's kit so easy is that the charge pipe from IC to TB is all silicone and nice and flexible.

    When I had my motor out, I ripped out my old IC kit. I reinstalled motor and intake, and then literally dropped the IC in inside of 30 mins.

    Last I heard the next batch of JD ICs will be available very soon, but who knows. You asked which one was easiest and I am giving you my experience.
