XS IC help. What am i doin wrong?
Just now getting around to my XS IC install on my 06 RXT. this is JFiz's updated version, the directions haven't been updated to address the new specs. Do i have the right couplers/pipes where they need to be? i have tried all combinations and i either end up short on one side or the pipes dont meet up right in the couplers and they bow out causing a pinch in the coupler. i know this would cause a boost leak for sure. I have the 3 standoffs on the bottom loose and the bungees aren't connected so i am able to move the IC in all directions allowed by the mounting plate. any input for me? Thanks for the help.

looks like the 4" air intake is getting in the way? I am putting the same thing in my 06 rxt no problem, but my 4" air intake runs along the top of the valve cover.

Yeeeap, nightmare to get right. It seldom appears to be exactly right, but as long as the hoses are sealed all around, it will fit.... and it really works too.
Many glass fibres in the forearms will be a product to enjoy later!!!

Couplers/pipes can be setup that way, but not for sure on how Fizzle set the kit up. Try swapping 45 pipe/st coupler with 45 coupler/St pipe.
If you can bring ic closer to motor should fit in pipe from ic to TB.

You don't want it pinched if possible.
Not saying to do this until someone confirms preferred install, but if you shorten the 45 pipe on both ends it will make it possible to bring ic closer on ic to TB.
Mine is like that and the pipe is very short on both pipes.
I don't have fizzle bracket tho.

im starting to work it. i ended up extending the straight pipe so i could put it further in the 45 coupler. it allowed me to finagle the other pipe and couplers. trick now is to tighten clamps in the sweet spot so they dont pinch. thanks for the help with this and yes RichieB im wearing a long sleeved sweathshirt to avoid the arm itch.

Shallow, I'm really sorry that I forgot to forward the new instructions. Your picture below is the correct way. Turn the coupler on the throttle body so that the opening is facing down. Turn the coupler on intercooler so that the opening is facing up. Pull the intercooler forward a little bit if there's not enough pipe to get a good clamp down. It might also come together easier if you can manage to turn the intercooler more towards the supercharger/exhaust side of the ski.
