Finally got my ETS 3.5" TMIC yesterday..Cullen and StreetUnit rock!!!! They have been on back order for awhile now, so I have been bitting my nails for a couple of months waiting for it...I got the 3.5" with the bolt on plate. Let me start by with this. If your the kind of person that wants a new part to be all shiny and perfect, with smooth welds..Well, look else where. But if you want an easy fit, and a part that works, and seems to work really well, then this is the TMIC for you...First, the 3.5" fits. The stock ram air shourd rubber seals will rub on the plate a little bit, but with an aftermarket rear mount, I can say, that it does not bump it durring start-up or under load..I only got to drive the car for about 40 mins, after I got the part on today, so the ECU is going though its learning curve again, but with the CP-E intake and Turbo XS "race pipe",and now the TMIC, this car now is really getting fast...Even with the DSC on, it will rip good in first and just plain crazy in second, it jerks the steering rather well to the left, and fits you, again with the DSC on!!!! I cant wait until the ECU is back up to snuff!!! The other really nice thing that I noticed was after the 40 min drive, I could open the hood and place my hand on the inter-cooler and it was only warm!!! This was in 80 degree florida sun today..I couldnt do that to the stock TMIC after a drive like that..Now, ill just patiently wait for CP-E or Cobb to come out with there programmer, and life will be good...
By the way, I have pictures of the ETS and stock inter-coolers, side by side so you can see the differance, and I have a couple of it on the car, but I dont have a picture hosting site, so if someone would like to put them up for me, I will gladly e-mail them to you...Thanks
P.S. the pics area little lower down!!!
