Does this allow for the undertray to go back on?

Yup, you'll be able to re-install the under shield once installed

Underbody tray, yes. The tray the used to cover the bottom of the intercooler, no. The bottom of the intercooler sits about half an inch lower than the OEM one. I just tossed it after the install, not like you actually need it for anything.

So I got this mofo installed with my BMW Buddy on Friday, not as easy as it seems, fitment is TIGHT!!!, had to cut off some plastic on the back side of the radiator to get this thing to fit, it eventually fit with some manipulation, getting my hand stuck between the crossmember and pipe and a few cuts, but me and my buddy got it in. He was at the point that he was going to take the whole front end apart. Overall works, but we broke the "c" clip that goes from the boost pipe to the intercooler (the one on the passenger side) we changed out the stock boost pipe to a FTP since I had it / came with my Charge pipe as a combo, and we had the intercooler out, do you know if BMW sells replacement ones?? I can't find any of these clips online, only found the clip to the Charge pipe that goes to the throttle body. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry, I didn't take pics, I ended up helping my buddy do the install, so my hand were greasy

Did you follow bullits5 DIY that he did on this same intercooler? He said it was tight but his went in with no modifications.

Here's his DIY, it's a great write up

Yah, I followed his post, stock intercooler came out no problem, but when installing the new intercooler and new boost pipe, that's where the problem came, you have to get the boost pipe at the right angle or else it wont go in. It was stiff as hell hard to turn, we loosened up the clamps that connect the the boost pipe together, there's and end piece that goes to the intercooler, a rubber coupler then then pipe that connects to the turbo, if you dont get the angle correct, your F!!c15ed! We were able to get it in, but that damn c clamp that connects the boost pipe to the intercooler broke......

For those who have this FMIC installed, any signs of boost loss compared to the OE IC? Its a great deal and clearly temperature is not an issue, but what about the boost? If it is losing 5 psi boost across it, that may be a huge difference that wagner beats it on?

Debating on getting this, how do you like it so far ? You have a F10 correct ?
