Update note: As of September 2022 we are now including our ZZP stencil with all heat exchangers and intercoolers. This way you can choose to leave the intercooler blank, or spray paint the ZZP logo with your choice of color to match your build. If you'd like to purchase a ZZP stencil for your intercooler or heat exchanger they can be found here

A Very nice intercooler option over stock

Stock intercoolers on the LNF are plastic and prone to breaking, and ZZP's Intercooler is a nice metal replacement. But small fitment issues with the included brackets, bolts and spacers that hold it up made it harder to install. Aside from the included brackets, this intercooler is large and hangs slightly lower than stock. Very good quality piece, 4/5
