    FMIC fitting

    How easy is it to fit the courtenay front mount intercooler yourself and roughly how long would you expect it to take.

    Is it as simple as take the old one off and bolt in the new one, or do you need to relocate things and drill holes?

    Not really that hard mate. just be sure to take your time, measure everything properly etc..

    does require some grinding, drilling, rotating front fan and moving RAD back.

    Allow yourself 4-5 hours so you don't have to rush the job, the actual time taken depends on what tools you have to cut the front panel, an angle grinder is much quicker than a saw.

    If you are fitting behind a coupe front bumper you'll need to spend some time to cut it back slightly too.

    I did mine in 5 hours inc a few cups of tea and some general messing about.

    It's not a difficult job, honest it isn't.

    On tip, measure the cnetre of the cooler and the centre of the bumper bar you are mounting to to make sure it sits in the middle of the bumper when finished!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Pace unit fits properly takes about 1-2 hours, all nuts and bolts no cutting or drilling required.
