I agree there. I have a RFL too.Originally posted by uptownWRX
i just got the RFL last week, trust me, you want the adapter. the only reason you would not want it is if you have a front mount and a different upper intercooler pipe. but otherwise spend the extra cash. it took me 15 minutes to install, and that was taking my time. without it i can honestly say you will be there for hours upon hours. reason being the adapter sits flush over the bracket that is an odd D shape. there is no way you would want to go welding anything onto this plate. but if you did you would have to weld a piece on there and then attach the b.o.v. and you would always see the bracket underneath. that is just my opinion though. hope that helps.
