    Removing stock IC

    Does the intake manifold need to be pulled off to remove the stock IC???

    Loosening the bolts should do the trick. Sometimes the cooler will come out without touching the intake manifold bolts. Most aren't that fortunate though..

    I was able to remove my stock ic without removing anything. It was a big PITA but with some time and effort it came out.
    The trick is getting the front of ic past the fuel tank.

    good luck

    Yes, the tracking details for the shipment should be in your e-mail inbox.

    Edit: your package should have arrived on your door at 12:03 this afternoon

    If you do have to loosen bolts on manifold or even remove manifold it really is not that bad. Just removed filter in my mani on T-X and I would rate it pretty easy. Not that bad at all as far as time either.
