Notes: On the dyno, we observed a shift in the power curve causing torque to peak at a higher point. While easily detectable by the numbers, it is not noticeable on the street. The intercooler kit fit with zero modifications to the bumper and no interference with the fog lights. The constant-tension OEM-style hose clamps have a tight fit, keeping everything in place.
