    Need a screw size...

    Hey does anyone happen to know the size (length and...thickness? ) of the screw that holds down the pipes on the rear bottom side of the intercooler? Do y'all know what I'm talking about? There's two pipes closer to the firewall that go up into the I/C from the side the faces the ground. Each of those has two screws. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hey man thanks. Whether that's the correct one or not, it's somewhere to start! I'll try and find one tommarow and see if it's the one when my car gets back from the shop.

    yea not sure its a toss up between either that one or M8x1.25 by the same length just take on of the bolts along with you if you can and find the right nut to fit it and bingo

    Oh okay, yeah I'll just take one in. But like I said, at least now I have somewhere to go from b/c before I would have no idea lol.

    Hey, I got what I needed. Went to pick up the car from the shop (they turned out to be complete idiots and didn't want to work on it under my extended warranty so they pretended like they couldn't fix it - and I didn't want them to work on it either once I found out they were complete morons). I was missing the bolt on one of those pipes running to the I/C from the turbo, and the other was way loose but I couldn't reach it very well and didn't have good tools. So when I picked up the car I asked the mechanic there to tighten the loose bolt and asked if he had a spare and he did. I didn't catch what size it was though, all he said was "I think it's a 12, 13 was too big." I didn't wanna argue since he was doing me a favor, and so I checked to make sure it was okay. It was, and it fit perfect. I guess you just gotta go with it sometimes right?

    totally agree, but if it ever wiggles loose again if you take off the ic it is real easy to get at those bolts, but if you still have the stock Y pipe it is a ***ch to get back on and I am 99% sure that 12mm is too big but if he got it right even though he didn't know the size that works

    Yeah, I dunno maybe he said something else....

    But yeah I've heard that the y-pipe is a major PITA to work with....people have suggested in other posts to get an aftermarket one made out of aluminum ( or some other kind of metal haha, not completely sure)....do you know if there's any performance value to that? or is it just a matter or simplicity?

    just get a silicone set it will make a difference would not bother getting the aluminun one, but I also ported the ic inlets where the y pipe connects to the ic, but yea a new y pipe will help
