Nice intercooler, needs a little refinement
The intercooler itself is top notch!!! One problem is that I ended up with 1 tbolt hose clamp at the throttle body that definitely is a 1/4” too small in diameter, was only able to get 1 thread beyond the end of the nut, when all the rest of the clamps had 8-10 threads beyond the nut! Huge chore to install that particular clamp considering the super close proximity of the heater hose clamp below the throttle body, with a BNR throttle body spacer installed!!!!! The charge pipe from turbo to intercooler inlet is very good, impossible to get the 45degree elbow centered in the opening, to keep it from contacting the chassis. The intercooler outlet 45 degree elbow is also impossible to get centered without contacting the chassis. The charge pipe angles at the intercooler outlet elbow and throttle body elbow could use some refinement, just a couple of degrees of angle adjustment, but difficult to say if this is consistent vehicle to vehicle. Huge difference in the extremely restrictive original charge pipes! So much so, I had to increase my wastegate spring strength and readjust the threaded rod! Increase in turbo whistle at air cleaner! Beautiful heavy duty black powder coated crinkle finish! My 2014 Cruze LTZ does not have an external trans cooler, less work, but ultimately higher probability of high temps, will upgrade that soon and abandon the radiator cooler just in case of leakage to prevent transmission catastrophe!
