Has some issues but overall good kit

Like the one guy said already the coolant hose is directly in the way of fuel rail stud , a bolt works fine solves the issue . The gaskets don't match inter cooler fully needing trimming to gasket match modified manifold and blower mods for max cooling also mentioned by another guy I'm using stock gasket under blower and kit gasket cooler to manifold . Impressed with finish on plate and exchanger, feel like I got my money worth , Intense 3800 got nothing on ZZP customer service , communication , shipping , all first class , don't go anywhere else . RB 1BADZ 93 cavalier Z24 SC 3800 ... Frankenstein .

Not bolt in for Regals

I wish I could upload photos! The HE hangs about 2.25" below the front bumper cover on the Regal I am working on. After some fab work, cutting some sheet metal and removing the ZZP tabs and adding mine on, tucked it up and it fits really nicely. Missing the fitting to attach the fill tube to HE All fittings are plastic. Will upgrade what I can to brass. Pump uses a proprietary fitting design, so stuck with plastic there Don't like that the left most intercooler hose requires removal of the injector mount stud to avoid kinking the hose. Pump rated for "intermittent" use, we'll see how long that lasts Overall, kit is good. Machine work and original weld quality was attractive and stout. Would buy again, just wish the refinement was better and a note about fabrication on Regals added. Thought I could do this quickly. Not so.

Easy bolt on to prevent KR

I was excited to get this kit, and decided to install it in steps (FMHE one day, intercooler another, etc.). There were no instructions for the FMHE, but it was easy enough to figure out. Something I didn't realize off the bat was a small gap in the intercooler where the two outside pieces bolt together. This gave me a big scare after installation when the car wouldn't start (loud hissing sound). I started double checking the fuel injector o-rings, and vacuum connections. In a way this was good because I found some other maintenance items I needed to address. The problem was simple- the o-ring seal of the intercooler was not sitting in it's groove at a point during assembly (it was pinched). This caused the loud hissing sound, and the no start condition. I simply removed the damaged part of the o-ring seal and ran a small bead of silicone in the groove and let it set up while I was tending to other things before bolting it back together. It probably wasn't a big deal, but I wasn't fond that most of the passage for the bypass valve was blocked off, so I remedied that will a mill bit and a rotary tool for a more factory function (probably at the cost of some intercooler efficiency). I used some fishing line to keep the spacers attached to the fuel rail at the mounting points. Once she was back together, it fired right up. I have yet to install/wire the pump, but plan on putting another fuse/relay in the factory fuse box like I saw someone else do. I also got the optional T-fill kit and have yet to install it.
