ya its just in there with a rubber grommet. I have a threaded one but the pipe isnt thick enough to thread it really.... but it is in there REALLY tight and it doesnt leak or ever blow out.

all of it is off ebay except for the bypass valve. all of the pipes and intercooler came from ebay and they work really well, just make sure you get 3-4 ply couplers and t-bolt clamps they are key!

you can tune it no problem, it is no different than tuning it w/out the intercooler if you keep the maf in the same position. what they are probably talking about is someone with a blow through maf, which is where you put the maf on the other side of the blower and not the intake side. they can probably just not tune that setup, but other than that you can put the intercooler on and not do a ton of tuning, what it allows you to do is run more timing and be safer at higher boost levels. you will want to get it tuned because I'm sure you want the most out of it and not tuning it won't give you any power etc.

if they don't know the difference between the 2 setups and didn't even ask I don't think I'd be getting my car tuned there anyways.

For your enjoyment here are new sound clips from the new "Blood" Line of exhaust systems from MagnaFlow. They are still in the testing phase and say they will have them for retail sale in early winter http://reignofblood.net/link.php?n=80220 its NASTY!

I just mounted up my intercooler...I used a smaller intercooler and said f it when it came to cutting the bumper support so I just took it off. My intercooler is shorter so I had to flip it around so the inlet/outlets were on the top. Otherwise my pipes wouldnt have fit because of my fog lights
