i have a large intercooler also, cut my bumper bracket very similar to yours. very nice install by the way. cleaner cuts than mine. what i did was just shaped the foam bumper insert to allow air to get to the top half of the intercooler.

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
You have issues whit A/F when you do a custom tanks in your intercooler?

Well technically shouldn't the AFR not change unless something is wrong? If you command a certain AFR, isn't the ECU supposed to correct its fuel delivery to reach that AFR? Jim, I remember you saying your *efficiency* went up and you had to turn your boost controller down to maintain the same boost, but I would think as long as you weren't maxing out injectors or fuel pump, you should have the same AFR.

11.6 is safe, as long as your tune was safe to begin with...though you've gone up 1.1 at the max, which is a significant difference. I'd search around for something that could have changed.

Tom did a tune for me and 10.5 AFR was the limit, i do not know if is good/safe to run with 1.1 point more,taking account that is not the tune as Tom did it...

When you did your FMIC upgrade, it made changes in a/f?
