As for that intercooler list, make sure you think about your setup for a long time, see if you can eliminate turns, or if 90* pipes and straight couplers might be cheaper than 90* couplers and straight pipes. Cx racing has really cheap pipe, couplers, and especially clamps. I'd definitely trust siliconeintake couplers more.
I'll try to find a link to see if it's the right sensor.

Intercooler pipping size
(21"x7"x2.5")










Edit** I just realized triple88a sent me the link. lol

Question:

When I install the mspnp. Will it be the same as installing a mspnp2? This was the only link I've found last night.
