Yes.. i can cut it to use it, to direct the airflow to the top of the FMIC..

Personally I like my AFR to be in the low 11's

The first thing I would do is take a datalog and see if the ECU is pulling any timing... after all it only takes a few minutes to do one. and if it is pulling timing you can always drop a pound or 2 of boost until you get the problem taken care of.

The trouble i see you having with cutting the svt is how to get the grill mounted flush and not look shitty. but option 1 for me
is the front bumper from wide body f2 or the regular usa spec front bumper?

Maybe check around and see if anyone has one... you can use either the Predator or Xcal to datalog without haveing to actually own it.

that looks hard core but kinda interesting you could probably strap on some extra PIAA fog lights and run that sucker.

Is aproximately the same in volume to use a FMIC with a size core of 21"X6.5"X3.5" than a FMIC with core size 21"X9"X2.75"?, just a difference in 42 cu/in.

The diference is logically the front area

Correct me if am wrong....

I am thinking in changing the intercooler for something similar than the one that i had before in volume, but with a bigger front area

What do you think??
