    Riva IC plumbing fit?

    Dan (RXPinMI) and I installed our Riva ICs and were trial fitting the plumbing ... it was very tight! Barely room to wedge it in, both plastic pipes seemed too long. Anybody else notice this or have any ideas?

    Got it, thanks Ray. I think I may try to bend the bracket a little, push the intercooler back ... the plastic tubes literally have to be wedged in between the IC, the SC and the throttle body ...

    quick question Vern, was there any excess fiberglass where the mount attaches to the pump bolts? I had to grind that area flat bc there was a slight ridge/seam making the braket not sit flat...PR...

    PR, no I checked that, nice and flat. But it does seem like the IC is just little too far forward, but there are a couple ways to deal with that ...
