Unfortunately you need to bring it to them Nick. No remote tuning.... even at a dyno shop.

thats what I mean, the cost to get from wherever you live, all the way to their shop. Kinda how APR functions in the Audi/VW world, but those people are actually shipping cars from Vegas to the East Coast just for Tuning.

In an effort to keep the thread topics pure I'm responding to Mikula's IC Info request that he posted on the RMM topic thread here for the benefit of all.

My Response:

Ref attached Pics of the stock IC.

Note: The two piping schematics are of the 2016-2017 Edge Sport & the 2017 Fusion Sport.

However, due to CPe's direction to keep their proprietary Info confidential for now I cannot distribute Pics nor measurements.
I can say that their striving for plug & play. At this point their considering to remove the 2 into 1 pipe on the hot side and go direct into the IC with dual inlets. This will be better for performance and allow cross compatibility with the Fusion Sport. I've also suggested they replace the cold outlet pipe with a consistent circumference pipe.

I also took measurements for the stock intercooler since I have mine upgraded to 100% aluminum/bar&plate

 

STOCK
       Core      Overall
L    25 7/8''      37''
W    2 1/2''     2 1/2''
H     6 1/8''     8 1/4''
 

 

 

snmjim - interested in understanding how they would keep both pipes separate in such a tight space, but would be good for standardization across the platform

Not sure how I can convey the 2 into 1 pipe (aka Y pipe) concept & room any better without specific questions... :banghead:

 

When U remove the Y pipe there is a space there which might allow for the dual pipe concept direct 2 the IC.... :reading:

 

However, piping is the least of CPe's concerns at this point N the project.

The big issue 2 B ID is will there B enough room behind the hot side of the IC 2 allow 2 inlet pipes that shoot straight back instead of one big pipe going up & ever so slightly back... :doh:

 

All questions & concerns will B addressed once we get on the rack at CPe... :hat_tip:

I know in most cases the hot inlets normally come from the same direction. but couldn't one inlet come from the top, one come from behind, or the side, or 45* angled from either?

 

i don't know much about IC's, or if there is a particular reason both inlets generally come from the same direction.

 

 

Since i have yet to remove my bumper to get a look at it, is there any space above the IC? I'm looking at some universal ones from a lot of different companies, but some are up to 11" tall, and i don't know what it looks like as far as space back/up/forward of the stock mount

Its a universal core 5% bigger then stock.  Fitment was 100% fine, no cutting, no welding, no fuss or muss and was < $550 :)

@GT500R did you post a link about it at all or share the link or part number??? 5% larger is fine but if it flows better and is bar and plate its thermal efficiency is substantially better than stock making it a good alternative.

 

Have you taken a log with it?
