Long tube is simply inserted into the hose clamp and fastened.
short pipe from the turbine is pruned and connects to Forge pipe with the metal sleeve, which I made ​​on the lathe, the price is $ 10/
The only drawback is that the lower fastening of a radiator not reach their seats, but experience has shown that there is no negative impact.
Mileage tuning of around 30,000 km
The use of this intercooler has eliminated the dependence acceleration from the outdoor temperature, acceleration is always stable.

ps photos are not very good and parts are dirty, when reinstalling are made with 328i by 328xi
Perfect explanation and you posted pics too! You're awesome man, thank you for taking the time!

Doesn't look like it'll take much at all to retrofit a 335i inter cooler setup from the e90/92. I might give the VRSF a try since it seems to be so popular with that crowd...
