Default FMII intercooler

what is the main difference between the na fmII intercooler kit vs. the nb intercooler kit (piping wise)? and can the nb kit be fitted to an na with minimal issue?

i believe the placement of the powersteering cooler is different on the NB, if I remember correctly that is why Begi has the powersteering cooler option cause of the placement been in the way on the NB, but it is 8am and I haven't slept so..

everything would be close, the TB inlet would be different, so that side would most likely need rewkoing.

Don't know if he is, but if he used their whack *** charge pipes that wouldn't really matter.

I've never touched with my own hands the FM Charge pipes, but I would assume since they're made of Silicon that they'd be more than flexible enough given their overall size to accommodate a very similar setup on your car vs what they're running on an NB... That's just my assumption, however.

The only difference in our NA and NB intercoolers is the mounting brackets. They put the IC in a slightly different place. We can supply just the brackets if you want ($25.95), or you can make your own without a lot of difficulty. The "whack ***" pipes are the same on the pre-IC side, the post-IC has a couple of changes due to throttle body differences. We can mix and match to make it work on your application.

Are we talking about the current FMII I/C or the old on with the whacky routing of the hotside piping? I assumed old.

it's easier to describe as pre-silicone pipes....

That is correct. Thought to be fair, I have one report of one not fitting on the NA as well.
