09 RXTX Intercooler Relocation Issues....Again
This is in response to a thread I posted back on 6-5.
This weekend I got some more time to look at it and took the VTS out and the I/C Relocation Bracket and did the grinding and modification listed here(http://www.speedfreeksracing.com/sfr/techtips/2) that was recommended to me and re-installed it. Once Installed I tried using a long big pry bar to bend the bracket before I installed the intercooler. After working on it for over 4 hours the end result that I acheived is below. As you can see I would say it is now worse than before.
These pictures were taken with the VTS loose and pushed all the way to the right side. It is still hitting badly. I really don't know what else to do?
Does anyone on here have any more advice as to what to do before I send this $550 piece of crap back to RIVA with a little note inside telling them what I think of this product.

I had to tweak my bracket also. If the top of intercooler is not touching or almost touching bottom of hull, then it is still to low.

Dam Joel. Sorry your still running into issues! Wish I could have made it out there to help some. This weekend I should be good to go. So hopefully we will get that all situated unless you are wanting to send it back to Riva.

If I bought a junkyard kit from a guy with a piece of sheet metal and a stick welder and paid $150 I could understand it not fitting........I thought I bought something nice......
Rant Over. Can I ride my ski now?
