    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

    Yes I did.... I used flash light to install I/C hoses. Last year, I remember using candle to install side skirts
