Also, I decided to go with the CPE intercooler, for a few reasons:
#1: It is the only true-American made IC with a lifetime warranty
#2: it has the largest core (both by surface area and volume) than any other IC available
#3: I have a siren speaker and lightbar mounted behind my grill that would interfere with raised IC's such as the FR and On3
#4: The CPE was literally half the price of the FR, and every review I have read on it has been crazy good, with claims of IAT's never more than 10 degrees above ambient. Ill hopefully be able to add to the good reviews :)

All in all, I got it for $669 brand new, including tax and shipping. Ordered Thursday and will be here Monday. Can't beat that.

Got my CPE intercooler delivered today. Super impressed with everything so far, from packing, to initial quality, to size/construction etc. This thing is HUGE. Can't wait to get it in. Stay tuned for installation and before/after performance and IAT data :)

Big day today. Got my Bilstein 5100's in as well as my CPE intercooler. Unfortunately, I'm getting an error with my base MPT tune file, so I'm waiting for a corrected file to be sent to me. MPT said it's a common issue with the BDX tuner and an easy solution, just waiting for response.

I was able to install the intercooler by myself, wasn't easy but it was doable. I had the help of my baby girl Kali (as you'll see). Check out the pics and also my time-lapse video of the install :)
