Spent about an hour installing Samco I/C hoses today.
You need to unbolt following items in order to remove intercooler:
Stock hose vs. Samco hose (diameter)
Pic of my car with intercooler and Samco I/C hose
Close up pic of Samco I/C hose installed:
A few things I found out:
- Inside of intercooler and stock I/C hoses are coated with oil, which is normal
- Stock hose clamps do work fine. No need to purchase bigger clamps
- Take time to clean up the coated oils inside intercooler
- Unless you are running a stock BOV, you do not need to install 3rd piece (nearly straight hose). It's up for sale so PM me!
Hope this helps and email me if you have any question
